Tahoe SRA

State Recreation Area

Due to the new Placer County bikepath that runs through the park, Tahoe SRA no longer has an overflow parking area for vehicles that do not fit in your campsite.  Parking arrangements will have to be made for overflow vehicles within legal areas in Tahoe City or the surrounding area.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation.
