Lake Tahoe Forest Service Recreation Facilities Close For Winter | News from Carson City, Nevada


The USDA Forest Service’s Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit has begun the annual process of closing recreational facilities around Lake Tahoe for the winter season. Seasonal closures apply to many national forest recreation sites, including beaches, campgrounds, picnic areas and logging roads.

Campgrounds, picnic areas and beach facilities on National Forest lands managed by Tahoe Recreation, a division of California Land Management, will close at the end of the day on Sunday, October 17, 2021.

Outdoor interpretive services at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center will also end on October 17, and the Tallac Historic Site closed in mid-September. Please note that bears can be very active in the Taylor Creek area during this time. Always keep your distance from bears, leave food and other scented items at home, and stay on the trails.

Logging roads generally begin to close in mid-November for public safety and the protection of resources. For specific logging road closure dates, see Motor Vehicle Use Maps at https://go.usa.gov/xM6gJ.

Although facilities on National Forest lands close for the winter season, the grounds and lake access remain open year round. During the winter month closures, services such as water, toilets and garbage collection are not available. When accessing these areas in the winter, be sure to put away your trash and whatever else you bring and use, park legally, and don’t keep the doors closed.
