The south shore of Lake Tahoe is a beautiful and historic area. American Indians knew how special this place was long before the first Europeans set eyes on the "Lake of the Sky."
The Lake Tahoe name comes from the Washoe Indian's "Da-ow-a-ga," which was poorly pronounced as Tahoe. The Washoe Indians would camp in the Tahoe basin during the summer months to escape the heat of the Carson Valley and Truckee Meadows.
Today South Lake Tahoe offers a wide array of activities in a spectacular setting, including hiking, biking, camping, fishing, boating, horseback riding and picnicking. Be sure and see the colorful Kokanee Salmon run in Paper-mill creek during the fall season. The location is about two miles from our chalet at the Stream Profile chamber near Camp Richardson beach resort.
