If you are looking for the least populated State Park in the Sierra State Parks system, Washoe Meadows State Park is the place for you. Washoe Meadows State Park, located on the outskirts of South Lake Tahoe, is a completely undeveloped park. Like Burton Creek State Park on the other end of the lake, its use—even its whereabouts—is virtually unknown except by local walkers, runners and Nordic skiers.
The Upper Truckee River runs through the park and is home to a wide variety of fish and birds.
Washoe Meadows State Park is currently undergoing a planning phase that would significantly improve the health of the 1.5 mile stretch of the river and improve recreational offerings. To learn more about the process including how to get involved to support this effort, click on the website below.
