Updated as of September 8, 2020:

The safety of employees and patrons is our highest priority as we continue to work tirelessly to provide safe, fun, and memorable experiences for residents and visitors of South Lake Tahoe. The impact of Covid-19 on our programs has resulted in delays, cancellations, or modifications to what we typically offer. Below you will find an update on the status of our recreation programs and Parks and Recreation Facilities:  

Campground by the Lake

OPEN for existing self-contained reservations only. For additional information about Campground by the Lake click here.

Recreation and Swim Complex

The pool is currently closed for necessary repairs to cracks in the pool’s fiberglass surface. A pool repair specialist was consulted and is repairing cracks with a new fiberglass coating. Additional repairs to the pool's mechanical systems are also being completed during this time. We are pleased to announce that after the above repairs have been completed, we will be opening the pool and have designed a modified program based on CDC health guidelines for public pools.
