Lake Tahoe

Did you know that Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the US and the 10th deepest in the world? Only Crater Lake is deeper in the US.

Lake Tahoe is 22 miles long and 12 miles wide, with 72 miles of shoreline. The average surface elevation is 6,225 feet, which makes it the highest lake of its size in the US.

Many streams and rivers flow into Lake Tahoe, but only one river flows out of it...the Truckee River.

It's a great place to visit in the spring, summer, fall, or winter.
