Come join us for some amazing fall colors in one of the most beautiful places on the planet and take in one or more of the events that will be going on — Camp Richardson’s Annual Oktoberfest is held the first weekend of October on-site at the Camp Richardson resort. Oktoberfest provides fun and laughs for the whole family. A local’s favorite, this Lake Tahoe festival features great food, music, family games and activities, and the famous Beer and Wine Garden. There is also the Fall Fish Festival, focusing on a variety of fish species that live in Lake Tahoe and its rivers. In addition to the Kokanee, these species include the federally protected Lahontan cutthroat trout and little-know smaller fish, such as speckled dace. The U.S. Forest Service Visitor Center is located three miles north of South Lake Tahoe on Highway 89. Join the fun and participate in this free family event which has become one of the most fascinating educational and wildlife viewing events in Northern California. The festival encourages participation by children and their parents in a wide variety of educational and entertaining activities.
