Emerald Bay State Park, USA

Emerald Bay State Park is a California state park located around Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe. It was designated in 1969 as a National Natural Landmark. Emerald Bay is Lake Tahoe's most photographed natural wonder, and was designated as an underwater state park—Emerald Bay Historic Barges—in 1994, the first park of its type in California.

The 593-acre (2.4 km²) park is home to Eagle Falls and Vikingsholm, a 38-room mansion that is one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in the western hemisphere. The park contains the only island in Lake Tahoe, Fannette Island.

Summer temperatures at the park range from the low 40 °F (4 °C) at night to mid-70 °F (25 °C) during the day, and during the winter visitors will usually experience temperatures between 20 and 40 °F (-7 and 4 °C). During harsh winters, the bay freezes over. The bay is about 1.7 miles (2.7 km) in length, and about two-thirds of a mile (1 km) wide at its widest point.
