Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe for generations has been Northern California’s favorite dog-friendly travel spot. And why not?

The largest alpine lake in North America is a scenic gem straddling two states and offering endless recreational opportunities. Dogs and their people who love the great outdoors will find nothing else quite like it in terms of amenities, both natural and manmade. Whether you gravitate to four stars or consider it heavenly to sleep under the stars, you’re in business at Tahoe.

There are three pet-friendly campgrounds at MacKerricher State Park, just three miles from Fort Bragg in Mendocino County. The primo spot for dogtrekkers at Northern California’s favorite playground has to be Nevada Beach Campground, situated right on the lakeshore and home to the only sandy, off-leash stretch of beach at the lake. And the Eastern Sierra is packed with gorgeous scenery and more campgrounds than you can count. more »

If you love Lake Tahoe, want to spend a fun time with your pack learning new tricks, all while supporting canine cancer treatment, we’ve got the perfect summer adventure. Wild Blue Dog's third annual summer camp is now accepting reservations for an activity-packed week in the company of other dog-lovers and their pets.

Wild Blue Dog Camp at South Lake Tahoe is just what it sounds like: summer camp for you and your dog(s). Held just one week a year (Sept. 2-8 in 2019) on a 33-acre, sandy-beach property between Edgewood Golf Course and Zephyr Cove on the Nevada side of the lake (the facility serves in summer as a 4H camp), Wild Blue offers a full agenda of training in everything from agility and lure-coursing to nose work and doga (yoga with your dog on the beach).

There’s swimming for both of you right off the beach or a pier, plus guided hikes, kayaking, paddle-boarding, and training and testing, for those interested, in Canine Good Citizen and therapy-dog certification. But there’s no need to stay constantly on the go: you’ll also want to make time to relax on a big green lawn in the shade of fragrant pines. more »
