Emerald Bay State Park - Review

This breathtaking beautiful park was established in 1953 and is spread over 1,533 acres of land. The park has Eagle Falls and Vikingsholm, which is a 38 room mansion depicting Scandinavian architecture in its finest forms. You can hike and bounce around the rocks while clicking pictures of the phenomenal views. You can take a boat ride in Lake Tahoe and that has its own share of fun. The ideal location of the park actually makes it difficult to describe how stunning the spot is. You have to visit this place to understand the history behind the mansion and the outstanding beauty which it beholds. It is a remarkable gem which will make your trip worthwhile.

Emerald Bay State Park, South Lake Tahoe Reviews

  • When we first parked here, I was able to see the whole bay from the top. It's $10 for the parking and honestly I think it's worth it. You have to walk a bit to get down like 15-20 min. The bay also offers kayaks like pope beach and the water is really clear and nice to swim in. Definitely enjoyed it.

  • Great place to spend a few hours or an entire day. Be prepared to get great views and have a great time swimming, hiking, learning, kayaking, and taking pictures. Get there early so you can get a parking spot. At the time it was $10 to park for the day.

  • One of the most beautiful spots on Lake Tahoe during the summer. There is $10 parking near the trail head. Parking all along the road. It’s a steep mile hike down to the shore. Kid friendly area with picnic tables. Kayak and paddle board rentals for decent price until 5pm. The Vikingsholm castle is located by the shore and offers tours till about 4pm. Of you want close parking arrive earlier in the day.

  • Parking is somewhat limited and the parking lot cost 10$ but you can just park on the side of the road and you should be fine. The area is well maintained and very accessable. A safe and beautiful place to go with your family

  • Most beautiful spot-on Tohoe lake circuit. We visited in winter. Walk to lake is a bit difficult... frozen water at many places... tiny waterfalls it's a different look on the slopes... The pure blue waters and the green slopes... Feast to eyes.
