Ed Z'berg Sugar Pine Point State Park, on the western edge of Lake Tahoe, contains one of the finest remaining natural areas on Lake Tahoe. With nearly 2 miles of lake frontage, the park has dense forests of pine, fir, aspen and juniper. Visitors to the park have their choice of activities, including camping, hiking, swimming, fishing, cross-country skiing and visiting the nature center.
An attraction is the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion (also known as Pine Lodge), a summer home built in 1903 in a grove of pine and cedar. The mansion provides an interesting view into the lifestyles of the wealthy on Lake Tahoe.
