to the Tahoe Adventure Sports Visitor Information Page. While our primary
focus is helping you find appropriate adventures at Lake Tahoe, we know
you'll need information on where to stay, where to eat, what the weather
has in store, and much more. Here you'll find the logistical information
you'll need to plan your trip as well as general Lake Tahoe information.
Tahoe is located in the northern part of the Sierra Nevada mountains
ninety miles east of Sacramento, California and fifty miles southwest
of Reno, Nevada. Two-thirds of the lake is in California with one-third
in Nevada. The lake itself is broken down geographically by North Shore,
South Shore, East Shore, and West Shore. The majority of Lake Tahoe's
residents live on the South Shore in South Lake Tahoe, California, Lake
Tahoe (Stateline), Nevada, or the unincorporated lands of El Dorado
County. Tahoe City on the northwest shore and Incline Village on the
northeast shore are the other more populous areas.
