D.L Bliss State Park

Placed on the Lake Southwestern side, a few miles north of Emerald Bay, D.L. Bliss State Park provides both walk-ins and camping and boasts some of the prettiest water in the lake.

Starting at the parking lot, launch off at Lester Beach.

Heading south along the shore, you will pass Calawee Cove Beach and the Old Lighthouse as you paddle along the towering cliffs of the Rubicon Trail, the best hike for any person who does not want to get in the water.

These cliffs continue down into the water, making a drop off beneath you of deep blue water.

If you feel love, stop at the popular Rooster Rock to test your rock jumping expertise with a range of different heights to pick from.

Continue south to pass different coves best for taking a dip during your paddle. Continue all the way to Emerald Bay for a longer tour.

Emerald Bay

While there is no direct launch location for paddleboards in the bay, you can launch at Baldwin Beach and paddle north to get to Emerald Bay.

Emerald Bay is one of the most amazing places on Lake Tahoe.

The deep blue water is a must view. Once in the bay, enjoy the relaxing waters and paddle to the popular Fannette island.

Here, you can paddle to the rocks and climb to the top of the little island, where there sits an old teahouse to explore.

After visiting the island, paddle toward Vikingsholm and the old stone castle that was built long ago.
