South Lake Tahoe, CA – Following a two-week closure the City of South Lake Tahoe plans to reopen its boat ramp starting Friday, July 24th. The City closed the boat ramp in order to evaluate its operating plan after a significant increase in visitation to South Lake Tahoe and a spike in Covid-19 cases.
Staff had been manning the ramp for weeks, including over the July 4th Holiday weekend prior to the closure on July 10th.
“We are pleased to re-open the City boat ramp to the public beginning this Friday at 10:00 am,” said City Manager Joe Irvin, “We have used the last two weeks to enhance the operating plan at the boat ramp making it safer for our residents, visitors and staff.”
The boat ramp will be open Friday through Sunday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm as it was before the closure. If you plan to use the boat ramp there are additional safety guidelines to be aware of including requirements to stay in your vehicle, wear a face covering, and having your boat ready to launch prior to entering the ramp.
“Our staff has taken all the necessary precautions to help all of us have a safe and enjoyable experience on Lake Tahoe,” said Irvin.
