Tahoe Area Casinos

South Shore Casinos | North Shore Casinos

Other casinos are located in Incline Village and Crystal Bay, at the northeast corner of the lake. The fhe Horizon has recently become the Hard Rock Hotel and offers good value for lodgings, as well as a new outdoor amphitheater that is the stage for two music festivals in the summer of 2015.
