Emerald Bay State Park’s unbeatable scenery and bounty of water-based activities make it a hot spot for travelers in the spring and summer, not to mention the beaches, trails and islands. Fire up your RV and cruise to Emerald Bay State Park, just 12 miles north of South Lake Tahoe, for the ultimate spring getaway.

Visiting the Park

The Emerald Bay State Park campground can accommodate travel trailers, campers and motorhomes up to 18 feet in length. The park is open daily from sunrise to sunset, but visitor center hours vary from season to season. Summer temperatures at Emerald Bay State Park average around 75 degrees in the day and 40 degrees at night. Winters are much chillier with highs in the 40s and lows around 20 degrees. The milder temperatures of spring are perfect for camping, hiking, and explorations.

Things to Do

Emerald Bay State Park is one of California’s favorite state parks, because the list of things to do is nearly endless. The park is home to Vikingsholm, one of the most esteemed pieces of Scandinavian architecture on the continent, as well as countless outdoor activities. Travelers can enjoy boating, hiking trails, fishing, guided tours, beachcombing, kayaking, swimming, wildlife viewing, museum visits, geocaching, scuba diving, picnicking, and tons of other adventures.

Camping at the Park

Emerald Bay State Park is home to two campsites, the Eagle Point Campground and the Boat-In-Camp. The Boat-In-Camp is only accessible by boat or foot, but you’re encouraged to bring your boat to the park.

Enjoy the View from the Winnebago View!


Combine a high-performance Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis with the dependability and comfort of a Winnebago RV, and you’ve got one of the top Class C motorhomes in the industry. The 2017 WInnebago View offers power, performance, comfort and fuel economy in a motorhome that many travelers have called “ideal.”

Why Choose the View?

This luxurious yet compact RV offers Primera swivel cab seats, an optional cabover bunk, a rearview monitoring system, power awning, LED lighting, a SmartSpace design, Flex Bed System, Winnebago’s optional Infotainment Center and so many high-end touches that you might forget you’re living life on the road.

2017 Winnebago View Floorplans

The 2017 Winnebago View comes in four different floorplan options to suit a wide variety of travelers’ needs. The 24G comes outfitted with a full, private bedroom in the rear of the vehicle, a bathroom with corner shower, a galley kitchen and a living space with sofa sleeper and table. The 24J, on the other hand, is similar, but travelers swap a little bit of bedroom privacy for a spacious U-shaped dinette.

And for RV enthusiasts who care more about living and entertainment space, the 24M offers a bathroom in the rear, a galley-style kitchen, a convertible dinette and sofa sleeper. The final floorplan, the 24V, is the most suitable for families with a cabover bed in the front, a sofa sleeper with table in the living space and a bedroom with twin beds in the rear.

The Mercedes-Benz Chassis

One of the most luxurious features of the 2017 Winnebago View is underneath the hood. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis with turbo-diesel engine allows every ride to be smooth, safe and fuel-efficient, so you can focus on the sights you see and adventures you enjoy.
