Update on the City of South Lake Tahoe’s Recreation Programs as of July 24, 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 summer programs has resulted in delays, cancellations, or modifications to what we typically offer. Below you will find an update on the status of our summer 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.


CANCELED for the 2020 summer season.

Recreation and Swim Complex

The pool is currently CLOSED for necessary repairs to cracks in the pool’s fiberglass surface. This repair will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks once scheduled. 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. For additional information about the pool click here.

Bijou Golf Course

CLOSED for the 2020 summer season. Currently, the facilities at Bijou Golf Course do not support safe workplace requirements based on CDC health guidelines. We will re-open when it is safe to do so. For additional information about Bijou Golf Course click here.

Lakeview Commons at El Dorado Beach Boat Ramp

OPEN Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM. Last boat launch at 4:30 PM. For additional information about the Boat Ramp click here.
