Beautiful Sugar Pine Point State Park lies along the western, quiet shores of Lake Tahoe, about ten miles south of Tahoe City on Highway 89. The Sugar Pine Point area has been a favorite for locals and visitors for over two hundreds years.
The park offers you incredible views, historic estates, the tallest pine trees in the world, and peaceful camping and cross country skiing experiences.
Sugar Pine Point State Park is the only Sierra State Park that operates programs for visitors in the winter. The park boasts over 20 kilometers of marked cross-country trails. Click here for winter program schedule and details (link to Interpretive Page)
There are two halves to the park: the campground, located on the western side of the highway, away from the lake, nestled in the pine and cedar forest, and the day use area on the lakeshore, on the eastern side of the highway. Sugar Pine Point is one of the finest remaining natural areas on Lake Tahoe. The park's nearly two miles of lake frontage feature dense forests of pine, fir, aspen and juniper. Its beautiful beaches beckon to summertime visitors and kayakers and wintertime cross-country skiers and snow shoers.
