“Emerald Bay State Park on the southwest area of Lake Tahoe is home to park is home to Eagle Falls and Vikingsholm, a 38-room mansion that is one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in the western hemisphere. The views from any part of the Bay are fantastic. The park contains the only island in Lake Tahoe, Fannette Island where a small teahouse was built by the owner of the Vikingsholm Castle. The park is accessible by State Route 89 near the southwest shore of the lake. Emerald Bay is one of Lake Tahoe's most photographed and popular locations. In 1969, Emerald Bay was recognized as a National Natural Landmark by the federal Department of the Interior. In 1994, California State Parks included the surrounding water of the bay as a part of the park, making Emerald Bay one of the first underwater parks of its type in the state, protecting the various wrecks and other items on the bay's bottom. There are several camping areas in Emerald Bay including Eagle Point Campground, Bayview Campground and the boat-in campground on the West side of the bay. Parking around the bay is small and will cost you about $8 for the day. You can also access the popular Desolation Wilderness hiking and camping area from the Eagle Falls parking area.”

There are many historic-based interactive displays and museums, reenactments, original buildings, and people in costume who share about this original 1800’s gold rush town. No driving down the main street! ”

National Park
“Majority of the guests who stay at our Airbnb either are planning to visit Sequoia and/ or Yosemite National Park. But what they often miss is the beautiful Kings Canyon National Park that is in between the two more-well-known parks. What I often recommend to guests is to take Highway 180 East to Kings Canyon NP on their way to Sequoia National Park. It is relatively smaller than Sequoia NP, but offer a slightly different scenery. It is also less crowded as well. Guests can spend an hour or so there, and drive to Sequoia NP via Highway 198 West. There's a road near Grant Grove at Kings Canyon NP that can leads you directly to Sequoia NP instead of making a detour around. On your GPS device, type in Kings Canyon National Park, then Sequoia National Park as the destination, you will see the route. Alternatively, you can ask the park rangers at Kings Canyon NP, they will point you to the right direction. ”
