Boat Ramp

Boat RampDescription

The TCPUD is excited to present our newly rehabilitated Boat Ramp! The ramp is located 1.5 miles east of Tahoe City off Highway 28 on Lake Forest Road. All vessels must receive an inspection prior to launching - for a list of inspection locations and hours, please visit

Tahoe Boat Inspections


You can also call TBI at (888) 824-6267. For other available boat launching facilities, please contact the various marinas around the lake.

Current water levels should allow for most vessel size launches at this time, but we cannot guarentee this all summer. Inspections available at Alpine Inspection Station as of May 1st.
