Spend a Day Relaxing in Tahoe on the Lazy Float Down the Truckee River

Flowing out of the northwest corner of Lake Tahoe in Tahoe City is a peaceful stretch of the Truckee River which is very popular for tourists and locals alike

There are many summer activities in the Tahoe area for adventurers, but if you’re looking for a relaxing adventure, look no further than the lazy float down the Truckee River.

Flowing out of the northwest corner of Lake Tahoe in Tahoe City is a peaceful stretch of the Truckee River which is very popular for tourists and locals alike. You can bring your own floating devices or rent rafts from Truckee River Rafting and they will also provide a shuttle back to your car after the 2-3 hour float.

The trip will take you along Highway 89 where you will see gorgeous meadows and beautiful cabins along with occasional mountain views. There are deeper parts of the river along the way so you can jump in to cool off. A shallow river bottom and plenty of accessible banks afford the opportunity to stop and soak up the setting along the way. The take out is located at River Ranch Inn near Alpine Meadows.

See what it’s like for yourself:

Have fun on your float!

  1. And please take all your trash with you!! Do not leqve it on the river banks, beach carveouts and anywhere else for that matter. This includes, used diapers, soda & water bottles, sandwhich wrappers etc etc etc. thank you!!

  2. So much fun! We parked at the end of the river ( Still great spots available at 10 am) Ubered up to the gas station, with just the single floater (rapid river floater), and floated down. Everything got soaked, so glad I left the phone in the car, paddles and sunscreen are a must!!

    with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different
    internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot
    quicker then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?
    Thank you, I appreciate it!

  7. When I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a
    comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment.
