About Alpine County
Located between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Alpine County is comprised of Lake Alpine, Hope Valley, and Woodfords. Alpine County is comprised of about 1,175 square miles and Alpine County received its name from the English word alpine meaning “of the Alps” due to its striking resemblance to the Swiss Alps.
The first known inhabitants of the area were Washo people, excelling in basketry and spent summers near the shores of Lake Tahoe. The population quickly increased during a silver boom in the mid-1800s and by March of 1864 Alpine County was created. Yet, by 1868 the local silver mines had proven unfruitful and the population fell from roughly 11,000 to about 1,200, and by the 1920’s only 200 people remained. It wasn’t until the late 1960’s when the Bear Valley and Kirkwood ski resorts were constructed that the population finally began to increase. Still the smallest populous county in California, just over 1,200 call Alpine County home today.
Alpine County is most popular for fishing, camping, hiking, rafting, skiing, and winter sports. Just 31 miles from South Lake Tahoe, many residents and tourists cross the state border into Nevada for casino gambling, live stage shows, and boutique shopping. Alpine County maintains its pristine natural environment while experiencing some of the best cultural, food and entertainment just a short drive away.
