Emerald Bay State Park

 

Emerald Bay State Park was recognized as a National Natural Landmark in 1969.  There are two campgrounds; one is walk or boat in only and the other is Eagle Point Campground.  The boat in campground has a pier to load and unload gear and buoys to moor your boat for the night.  A great day hike is the Rubicon Trail which wraps around Emerald Bay and continues along the shores of Tahoe over to D.L. Bliss State Park.  An easier hike is the one mile down to Vikingsholm.  On the other side of Hwy 89 is a two mile hike to Eagle Lake.  The only island on Lake Tahoe is the infamous Fannette Island with the Tea House pearched on top.
