General Information: Well, we have to admit to never putting in here, but we have talked to people who have. We have been down to the boat ramp and around Cave Rock climbing and the scenery from shore across the lake is breathtaking, so we imagine being on the lake here would be even better. It is a relatively uncongested area as most people use the South Shore boat ramp or Camp Rich to launch their boats. We have noticed that the waves and chop on this side of the lake are significantly larger than the west and south shore due to the greater distance available to build up the waves.


Where To Start: Cave Rock is located about 8 miles north of the casinos on Tahoe's southeast shore. Drive north on Highway 50 past Zephyr Cove and look for signage for the boat ramp. There is a small day-use fee.

Description: The shoreline both south and north of Cave Rock has moderate development, mostly very expensive lakefront properties. There are lots of rocks and shoreline is fairly rugged. A mile and a half to the north is Logan Shoals, where the Toiyabe National Forest comes down to the shore. This looks to be a fine area to explore with small rock islands and shallow water. Farther along, is South Point and the rich and famous community of Glenbrook. To the south, you can explore the shoreline between Cave Rock and Zephyr Cove. This will most likely be more developed and crowded.

Environmental Concerns: Paddle it in, paddle it out.

Advisory: Like all kayaking on Lake Tahoe, you must exercise caution when around power boats. The people driving the power boats may very well never have set foot in a boat before, let along been behind the wheel. Combine this with some alcohol, get the picture. As a non-power craft, you have the right of way according to the "Rules of the Road", but a lot of good that does you when you get hit!
