    Resort at Squaw Creek_Recreation_Lake Tahoe Aspen Tree

    Back and better than ever. Apple bobbing, October Fest Dinners, pumpkin decorating and so much more!


    Resort at Squaw Creek’s Harvest Festival is back and better than ever! This year, we have two weekends of fun family activities, including everything from apple bobbing contests to October Fest dinners. October is one of the best times to visit Lake Tahoe because you can watch the leaves start to change and it’s a relatively crowd-free time of year. The days are warm enough to swim, so you can reap the last rays of summer, and the nights are cool and crisp, perfect for you to dine al fresco and drink hot cider by the fire.

    Friday, October 13 & 20

    Sandy's Pub will have hot drink specials all day, night time s'mores, brats specials, and cider menu and seasonal fall drafts. In addition, Sandy's will also have a caramel and chocolate apple dipping station from 5:30 - 7 pm.
