|About these ratings|
Named for 19th-century lumber titan Duane LeRoy Bliss, this stunning 744-acre park is home to the deepest section of Lake Tahoe and some of the area's most breathtaking sites, including several pristine beaches and the Balancing Rock, a 250,000-pound boulder balancing on a mere fist of granite.
While the trail leading to the Balancing Rock was once dubbed one of Lake Tahoe's premier hiking trails, recent visitors lament about its current condition. "We visited D.L. Bliss State Park about 7 years ago and found the interpretive trail at Balancing Rock to be fun and informative," writes one TripAdvisor user. "Well, no more. That area of the State Park is now in ruins. It looks like it has not been maintained for a few years." However, recent visitors continue to rave about the park's beaches and campsites, saying that they're well worth a visit.
