Emerald Bay was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1969 and it became a California Underwater State Park in 1994. The natural beauty, geology and history of this area make it one of the highlights of a visit to the Lake Tahoe area.

This park features Vikingsholm, one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in the western hemisphere.  The "Tea House" on Fannette Island, the only island to be found in all of Lake Tahoe. It is the resting place for many boats, launches and barges of Lake Tahoe before the turn of the century. 

Location / Directions :  The park is located 22 miles south of Tahoe City. Vikingsholm can be reached by parking in the Harvey West parking lot by Highway 89 at Emerald Bay. Take the trail, which is one mile in length and drops 500 feet in elevation to the house.
