Caldor Fire Update

With the Caldor Fire at the doorstep of our beautiful Lake Tahoe Basin, Reno-Tahoe Territory, kindly asks that visitors postpone their upcoming trips to the Lake Tahoe area. Our community is strong and resilient, and we will once again be able to host vacationers from around the world. At this time, our priority is the safety of our residents, those who work here and the first responders doing their job to save our community.


Read the full statement from Carol Chaplin, President and CEO of Visit South Lake Tahoe:

“The priority for the destination is getting this fire under control and helping those affected. We thank all the firefighters, city, county and emergency organizations and personnel involved with our protection for their leadership in coordinating efforts on a daily basis.

We will be mobilized to assist area businesses and residents recover. We’re a tight-knit mountain community and as such have weathered various challenges over the years to emerge stronger. And we will again. We ask for everyone’s support in following the guidelines of emergency agencies and for your prayers.”
