The Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park Spooner Backcountry is a widespread recreational and natural oasis. Spooner Lake, at the intersection of State Route 28 and U.S. 50, is popular for picnicking and catch-and-release fishing. It is also home to the new Spooner Summit rental concession. Services include an overnight stay in backcountry cabins and mountain bike rentals for riding miles of trails in the summer months. Spooner Lake is also a major trailhead for gaining access to the Spooner Backcountry. The backcountry comprises more than 12,000 acres of forested open space with over 50 miles of hiking, equestrian and mountain biking trails and primitive roads. Vehicles are not permitted in the backcountry, which has been designated as a state primitive area. A few of the more popular trails in this area are the Marlette and Red House Flumes as well as the Tahoe Rim Trail that runs along the crest of the Carson Range.
