Lake Tahoe SummerPlanning a summer vacation to Tahoe? Between the 15 mountain resorts surrounding this 1,645-foot deep lake that crosses the California Nevada border, there's no shortage of summertime mountain activities, from camping, hiking and mountain biking to disc golf. The second deepest lake in the United States, mountain travelers bound for Tahoe in the summer months also have a bevy of beaches and on-lake activities in and around North America's largest alpine lake, with more than 70 miles of shoreline.
Although Lake Tahoe is comprised of many regions, the area is generally divided into South Lake Tahoe and North Lake Tahoe. While most of the ski resorts reside up north, including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar, the south side is home to Heavenly, Kirkwood and Sierra-at-Tahoe, and both host an abundance of campgrounds.
