Safer Visitation

Safer Visitation

Tahoe South is the perfect destination for visitors to begin venturing out and we are ready to offer the ultimate ‘travel therapy’ experience. Our wide-open outdoors and unparalleled beauty offer an ideal setting to reconnect with nature. 

Safer visitation is up to visitors and residents alike. We ask that you maintain a safe physical distance even on our trails, beaches, and parks. And, as you’re recreating in our beautiful destination, please make sure to leave no trace, wash your hands frequently and bring hand sanitizer.

National Forest trails, trailheads, beaches and interpretive areas in the Lake Tahoe Basin will re-open for day-use only beginning, Sep. 19, 2020. Camping and overnighting will not be permitted, and campgrounds will remain closed. Emergency Fire Restrictions will remain in effect through Nov. 30. Additionally, some National Forests across California will re-open, while others remain closed. For details, please visit the Pacific Southwest Region website at

City of South Lake Tahoe Fire Restrictions

Fire season is upon us and many restrictions are now in effect where outdoor burning, campfires, and fire pits are concerned. 2020 started out with the driest February on record since the 1850s, and there is an increased fire danger posed by dead grass and hotter, drier conditions in the region.

Fireworks are not allowed anywhere in the Lake Tahoe Basin. More information.

Fireworks are dangerous and illegal!

Fireworks of any kind will not be tolerated. Yes, that includes sparklers and the “Safe and Sane” fireworks sold nearby.

Anyone caught using or possessing ANY kind of firework could be cited, or arrested, and booked into jail. We will also confiscate any fireworks that we find. Save your time, save your money, protect our community and keep fireworks OUT of El Dorado County.
