I love this sculpture of Lake Tahoe! They have interesting facts about the Lake all around it, and the part that is cut out, indicates the depth of the lake around the edges, and in the middle.

Facts like:

  • Average depth = 1,000 feet
  • Deepest depth = 1,645 feet
  • Temperature is 41 to 68 degrees
  • Size is 22 miles long x 12 miles wide
  • Shoreline = 72 miles
  • Volume = 39 Trillion Gallons (enough to cover California with 1 foot of water!)

The part of the sculpture that was cut out, is off to the side and has an interesting saying on the top of it from Mark Twain in 1872:

"...at last, the lake burst upon us -
a noble sheet of blue water lifted
six thousand three hundred feet
above the level of the sea, and
walled in by a rim of snow clad
mountain peaks that towered aloft
a full three thousand feet higher
still...I thought it must surely be
the fairest picture the whole earth
affords..." ~~Mark Twain "Roughing It" - 1872

One thing that I really love about this beach area, is that they have a grassy area above the beach with lots of picnic tables where you can sit and eat lunch, or dinner while soaking in the gorgeous view of the beach and the lake.

There is 540 feet of shoreline at this beach - I like it because every time, I've been beach hopping, in the area, it is not as crowded as the larger Kings Beach State Recreation Area.

This is what the view of Lake Tahoe looks like from the beach area - truly spectacular! It is so peaceful, just to sit on the beach and watch all the boats go by!

The North Tahoe Beach includes restroom facilities and a group picnic shelter that includes a BBQ, running water and can seat around 90 people. This area can be rented out for parties, weddings, or group picnics. It is a nice shady place to hang out on the hotter days!
