Welcome to Lake Tahoe Western Shore


All campgrounds and many businesses shut down between November and May. Hwy 89 often closes after snowfall for plowing or due to imminent avalanche danger. Once you drive its tortuous slopeside curves, you’ll understand why. The further south you are, the more of a roller coaster it is, no matter the season – so grip that steering wheel!
