NORTH LAKE TAHOE, California (CROWN) – North Lake Tahoe says it’s ready for visitors again after Caldor Fire put a break on tourism.
Full containment is expected by the end of the month. Right now, Cal Fire reports that it is 70% contained.

“The Tahoe Basin has experienced some hardship over the past few weeks, and Caldor Fire has affected the entire region,” said Andy Chapman, president and CEO of the Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitors Bureau. “Our hearts go out to all who are affected by the losses around our community and to our neighbors in South Lake Tahoe. We are incredibly grateful to the firefighters and first aiders who continue to keep our community, residents and visitors safe. We look forward to welcoming you back to the region. ”
Anyone wishing to visit Tahoe for its national forests should be aware that all of California’s national forests are still closed to visitors.
