The shoreline both south and north of Cave Rock has moderate development,
mostly very expensive lakefront properties. There are lots of rocks
and shoreline is fairly rugged. A mile and a half to the north is Logan
Shoals, where the Toiyabe National Forest comes down to the shore. This
looks to be a fine area to explore with small rock islands and shallow
water. Farther along, is South Point and the rich and famous community
of Glenbrook. To the south, you can explore the shoreline between Cave
Rock and Zephyr Cove. This will most likely be more developed and crowded.
Concerns: Paddle it in, paddle it out.
Like all kayaking on Lake Tahoe, you must exercise caution when around
power boats. The people driving the power boats may very well never
have set foot in a boat before, let along been behind the wheel. Combine
this with some alcohol, and...you get the picture. As a non-power craft,
you have the right of way according to the "Rules of the Road",
but a lot of good that does you when you get hit!
