About Taylor Creek Visitor Center

The Taylor Creek Visitor Center, operated in partnership with the Great Basin Institute, is located on the South Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe, approximately three miles north of the City of South Lake Tahoe. The visitor center serves as a hub where four fascinating self-guided trails start and is the home of the Stream Profile Chamber and the Lake of the Sky Amphitheater, primary attractions at the visitor center complex. Wilderness and campfire permits and National Recreation Passes may be obtained at the center and the visitor center store has a wide selection of maps, books, T-shirts, hats, stuffed animals, and much more available for purchase. The visitor center is open Memorial Day weekend through October. Though the buildings are closed during the winter, the grounds remain open year-round, and the site serves as a popular cross-country skiing and snowshoeing destination.
