The Tahoe Region offers an abundance of recreational opportunities highly valued by visitors and residents and these recreational resources are one of the major drivers of the regional economy and contribute to the quality of life in the Tahoe Region. The adopted threshold standards for recreation are statements of policy rather than numerical standards and each is evaluated separately. Factors that influence recreation are the availability of recreational opportunities, the number of visitors using recreation sites, the conditions of the environment and developed recreation facilities, and the ease of accessing recreation sites. The Environmental Improvement Program targets increasing recreation opportunities through public land acquisitions and adding available access to public land both in the backcountry and Lake Tahoe’s shoreline.
