Tallac Historic Site, South Lake Tahoe Reviews

  • Very beautiful! The buildings and grounds were well kept while still looking natural. The staff were very friendly and helping with great knowledge of the history. We went on a Saturday, so they had some kids activities and games.

  • Wonderful place to spend the day. Very historic area, the museum areas are free, parking is free too! There's also nice quiet shoreline areas to spend the day at the water.

  • It's so serene and peaceful. But full of energy too. The property is right on beautiful crisp clear Lake Tahoe.

  • This was the experience of a lifetime! I vlogged the adventure on my YouTube channel Jonno Plays. Search for Tahoe video my 4k footage came out amazing

  • This was an amazingly beautiful place. The site would not open until Memorial day. We were able to walk around the grounds and enjoy the scenery and the history
