Points of Interest:
D.L. Bliss State Park-
744 acres of secluded wooded area on the lakeside of HWY89 that includes a D.L. Bliss Campground, pristine sandy shore with azure waters, and an amazing long but fairly level lakeview trail that connects with Emerald Bay State Park. Some of the deepest depths of Lake Tahoe are to be found off the shores of D.L. Bliss.

Emerald Bay State Park – Emerald Bay is one of the most photographed areas of Lake Tahoe, with a vista point set right off the HWY89 further south from D.L. Bliss. It is a destination not to be missed. About a mile hike down from the vista point, lies Vikingsholm Mansion, an old Norwegian aristocrat’s home that allegedly he built there as it reminded him of Norwegian fjords. Eagle Falls hike on the other side of the road from the vista point, leads to a network of mountain lakes including Eagle Lake, and more amazing views of the Rubicon Bay.

The campgrounds are closed during the winter; depending on the weather, they are open from late May until the middle of September. Campsite reservations in California State Parks may be made by calling the current toll-free reservation hotline, (800) 444-PARK, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.Pacific Time, seven days a week.
