Another small lake to jump around in is the beautiful Fallen Leaf Lake on the South Shore. The beach here is rocky, but if you can snag one of the few free public parking spots on the south part of the lake, you might have the beach to yourself. You can go swimming right off the beach in the clear, cold water and get some great views of Mount Tallac and the local Stanford Camp on the south part of the lake. Hot Tip: Fallen Leaf Lake is also a great place to take your dog swimming. Directions: From Highway 89 in South Lake Tahoe, head toward Emerald Bay and turn left on Fallen Leaf Road. This twisty and sometimes one lane road will pass by the campground and take you to the far side of Fallen Leaf Lake. There is a small parking area by the resort and marina.
