We went to the nice park with scenic views of Lake Tahoe. This time we were there on Labor Day. Cave Rock is very pretty.

Beautiful views of sunset. Short hike to the rock and fairly easy climb to the top of the rock. One of the best sunset views giving a glimpse of the whole lake.

You can pay for three parks at any one of the three. This was one of them. It was nice. Right on the water. And the rock is pretty cool looking. Only takes a little amount of time to check it out.

Cave Rock was recommended as a site for star-gazing. We decided to do it by daylight instead but were disappointed that the access road was closed. Not sure if this was to protect a sacred Indian site or for another reason.

Not a beach, hike to a vantage point overlooking the lake. For beach, try Kiva or Tahoe keys East Cove or anything on the East Shore Nevada State Park.
