Local Area Attractions Near Coleville / Walker KOA
The perfect spot to use as your basecamp to explore places like Lake Tahoe, Virginia City, Bodie State Park, Mono Lake and Yosemite National Park.
Lake Tahoe is located along the border of California and Nevada. It is admired for its clarity, great depth and beautiful alpine surroundings. About two-thirds of the basin is in California while the other third is in Nevada. The lake was formed by geologic block faulting up to 3 million years ago. There are numerous sights to see from South Shore, around the west side of the lake up to Tahoe City and Incline Village then back south around the east shore.
A short 60 minute drive north of the Coleville KOA is Virginia City. This 19th century mining bonanza turned Virginia City into the most important industrial city between San Francisco and Denver. Spend a day walking the wooden sidewalks and exploring the old saloons, antique shops and ice cream parlors.
