STORE AND MARINA
In addition to our cabins and lodge rooms, during the Summer only, we have a Store and Marina. Fishing boats, canoes, and kayaks are available for rent. There are also docks for mooring guests’ boats. The store carries bait and tackle and an assortment of sundries and snacks. In addition to fishing areas there is a designated swimming no fishing—area. A deep water launch was commissioned in 2010 by the El Dorado Irrigation District and the U. S. Forest Service on the north east side of Caples Lake, 1/2 mile east on Hwy 88.
There is a small General Store at Kirkwood Mountain Resort (2 miles west). The next nearest market is 25 miles away in Meyers, CA on Hwy 50. There is also several grocery stores in Minden/Gardnerville, Nevada, 35 miles east on Hwy 88.
WE’VE GONE GREEN!
Because our electricity is supplied by our own energy system, we ask that you use only our appliances, including blow dryer. We do not allow battery chargers or generators.
Miles from civilization, we do have WiFi and Verizon cell phone reception. Other cell services are available 1 mile west at Kirkwood Mountain Resort.
We have a wood fired Sauna for guest use.
In addition, we provide our winter guests complimentary snow shoes, and an ice auger for Ice Fishing and free instructions on how to make snow angels.
