Where I stayed
Sugar Pine Point Campground
Drove 45 mins around the lake - crossing into the State of Nevada (yep cowboy hats & casinos) to Sand Harbour - doesn't sound much but it is indescribable. Think bliss - then you have Sand Harbour at Lake Tahoe.
We couldn't bear to leave this beautiful place, so we decided to spend a day 'blobbing' it. Found a quiet sandy bay, with smooth rocks (great for climbing), plenty of parking (they have to be able to accommodate trucks with boat trailers in summer), and a clear, see to your feet, pure water lake, (almost 1000 feet deep) all encompassed in amazing tree studded mountains.
The hot sun decided to join us for an incredible, perfect day.
