Historical railroad museum featuring a unique Run-a-Locomotive program, which allows anyone to rent and operate a train on the museum premises.
This is a volunteer-staffed organization and it shows. They have a LOT of equipment -- rolling stock and locomotives. But they clearly haven't the manpower to keep any but the few indoor items looking nice. The "museum" is quite haphazardly arranged. And I found the young woman manning the counter in the gift shop to be fairly unhelpful.
I wouldn't make the effort to go again, and can't recommend it.

This par 71, Dick Bailey-designed championship golf course ranked 18th best golf course in California by Golf Digest and was honored with the Environmental Award for its outstanding care and planning to preserve the environment.
This is just one spectacular mountain course near Graeagle, CA.
Filled with sights, sounds and smells of the mountains. Blowing Pines, Lakes, River (runs through it).
They have lots of inexpensive golf packages and the accommodations are very nice
The course is just tough enough and immaculate. I've never seen golf balls sit up on the top of the grass like they do here. In the beautiful fairways (if you can stay there). it's a perfect lie every time.
Great course, worth the drive.

We departed from Round Lake (near Gold Lake Lodge) for a 4.5 hour hike at a leisure pace. We saw Lake Veronica, Gold Lake, Silver Lake, Cub Lake, Little Bear and Big Bear lakes. We even dove in the pristine and clear lakes, and dropped at several stops. This is GOD's country!

We were in need of a little refreshment on recent ride through the "Lost Sierra" and found the Brewing Lair like we do most things - - Ask Google. Never one to shy away from trying something new, we pulled up the long dirt drive (you can almost miss the sign if you're going too fast), and found a spot to park the motorcycle. We were greated by the resident pooch and by another dog who was hanging with a construction crew - - looks like they were finishing another outbuilding. The Lair is self contained, with a small brewing operation on site and a great deck and play area. There are several levels of grassy areas, a fire pit, a disc golf course, and hidden dinosaurs for kids to play with. This is a really family friendly place. You can bring a picnic, or just hang with a cold one. The beers tend toward the West Coast IPA style. And it looks like they have 4-5 on tap at any given time. If you like hop-forward brews, this is your place. But if you're really just looking for a place to hang, like on the porch at and old ski lodge, this is the place. Nice people. Kick back place.

We have many facilities including a brand new 42 room hotel, 12 villas, restaurant, bar and lounge, 18 hole golf course and much more.
Ok, Dragon is a bit of a schlep--but well worth it! This is the best golf value in the Tahoe area.
Highway 89 is in great condition. The views on the way up are very scenic. It is reminiscent of what this area was like many years ago. Ranches, mountains, open space and no crowds!!!!
We were greeted by Jason--very professional and customer focused. We could enjoy a nice breakfast--$12 average and the food was the best breakfast food ever at a golf course. We enjoyed sitting in the beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright designed club house and had time to eat and explore the well stocked and appointed pro shop.
The golf course was fabulous. I played from the #2 tee-- it was perfect for my CH 16. I used every club in my bag because of the great design. This course has multiple tee boxes for all levels of golfers. The greens were in great condition and so were the fairways. This is difficult to accomplish in the harsh environment that is Tahoe.
We didn't stay in the lodge, but I would recommend it. To just hang out, far from the madding crowds is such a bonus. The clean mountain air, the great value, away from the chi chi overpriced resorts of Squaw and Northstar ( I love those places, too, for skiing and have been there courtesy of conventions, but when it's your own nickel, and want to get away--Nakoma and the Dragon is the place to go!)
The service and the attention to detail to create a great customer experience is to be rewarded.
Here is my day and what I recommend:
1. Arrive and have breakfast. The food was amazing for $12.
2. Nice practice facilities to get in the groove before you tee off.
3. Get the Klean Cantine for $21 and have free refills of non alcoholic beverages. These things really keep your beverages cold or hot.
4. Buy a yardage guide. Your Garmin's will work too, but I love to buy and collect paper yardage guides.
5. Get a score card. The Best Score Cards yet at a golf course. Beautiful color pics of the course, and hints to play each hole. (the hints are not on the yardage guide)
6. Enjoy the holes and THINK!
7. Enjoy the mountains, the vistas and being away from the crowds.
8. Excellent pace of play. We were done in 4 hours. Fellow golfers were great--one group let us play through-- we were not waiting on any holes, and the group was able to enjoy their round without anyone breathing down their back.
We will be back! I come to Tahoe frequently (own a vacation home in South Shore) and the Dragon Golf Course and Nakoma Lodge is an absolute gem.

We have lived near here for 35 years and our bluegrass band plays every year for their yearly pancake breakfast fundraiser. This is a great place to experience California history of gold mining. Docents do a very good job explaining how the stamp mill worked and how gold was extracted. Often blacksmiths are working in the working blacksmith shop. The campground is beautiful also. Highly recommend. Beautiful cross country skiing in winter too...

Loved the pool & steam room, as well as the relaxation room in the Mens' locker room, complete with big flat screen, fireplace, comfy couches, etc. Sauna wouldn't work, & the exercise room is pretty tiny - a nautilus-type machine, elliptical, & a few free weights.

Whether you like your brews hoppy, dark, or fruity—or just something that tastes good with bratwurst— our onsite taproom, Eureka Peak Brewing Co. offers it all. Stop by to sample one of our 10 beers on tap or 20 bottled beers accompanied by artfully prepared dishes made with local, seasonal, sustainable ingredients.
Open weekends. Great variety of beers on tap brewed right there on site. I prefer the porters and stouts. Now servings some great saisons as well. No food, only beer...so bring food or snacks with you if you like! We try and stop in whenever we are this way on the weekends!

This 18-hole championship course is 6,680 yards with each hole offering a glimpse of the area's rich mining history with such names as Indian Grave (Hole 8) and Go West Young Man (Hole 14.)
Many of the holes on this course looked like a movie set--mountains and stately pines in the background, river running along some holes. The course was in excellent shape when we played last week and we found it was fun and challenging enough for us average golfers.
