North Lake Tahoe

Placer County provides a wide variety of services to North Lake Tahoe residents, local businesses and visitors.

Our responsibility to preserve and enhance Lake Tahoe’s environment means we often must deliver those services in a different manner than we do elsewhere in the county. Placer County works closely with our regional partners to meet the needs of our residents, businesses and visitors.

Tourism Master Plan Grant Guide and Application is now available!
