Spellbinding Ice House Reservoir

 

“Spellbinding” perfectly describes this mountain reservoir’s terrain, as your eyes take in sunlit ripples glistening on the water’s surface. Thick stands of conifer trees flank the shoreline, providing plenty of shady pullout access areas to relax on for a spell. Over the years, the gorgeous conifer forest and craggy mountain landscape surrounding Ice House Reservoir became known as the "Switzerland of California." With such a name it is not surprising that Ice House Reservoir provides a plcanoeing Ice House Reservoirayground for outdoor sport enthusiasts. Whether your preference is canoeing, kayaking, wind surfing, hiking, or camping, you will find it all at this sparkling, magnificent clear water getaway.

Located 50 miles south of Lake Tahoe and 70 miles northeast of Sacramento, in the Eldorado National Forest, at nearly 700 surface acres and 10 miles of shoreline, Ice House isn't the largest reservoir or lake in the area; nearby Union Valley Reservoir dwarfs it at 2,412 acres.
