Beautiful lake Whiskeytown in northern CA.

Whiskeytown Lake from the South Side

Whiskeytown lake in northen CA, in Shast county west of Redding CA. The water is blue, green, clearn and gorgeous.
Whiskeytown lake is beautiful and wonderful to swim in.

 

Finally, I managed to get to the lake and swim. I have been to this same spot a couple of times, but not yet this year. It is located on the South side of the lake, after you drive over the dam. I love this spot, the water reminds me of the sea.

Whiskey town lake is wonderful because no matter the drought, it will always be full and ready for activities, camping, boating, kayaking, skiing, sailing, or whatever activity you would like.

Below is Lily, my Mom’s dog, she loved the water, but not necessarily to swim. She never went any deeper than her stomach. We were at the beach for two hours and she did not sit once.

These pictures were taken on the south east side of the lake, it has a white sand and more granite.  Other parts of the lake can have red sand for instance.

Sand Harbor, Lake Tahoe, Nevada State Park

Sand Harbor Lake Tahoe, is a Nevada State Park, located on the east shore of Lake Tahoe.  Beautiful pristine blue waters on this side of the lake with wonderful rock formations.  Once the area was home to Native Americans, The Washo Tribe, and then later, by wealthy Americans.  One of these Americans, spent much money on The Thunderbird Lodge, and other historical buildings on San Harbor, formerly a summer estate.

Today, it is a hot destination spot on Lake Tahoe, and you can view the link to read more about the Sand Harbor state park and what they offer.  It can get very busy during the peak summer season.    Also there is a theater at Sand Harbor and every year they have a Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival.  Below you can find the link and go to their Facebook page and like them.
