Dodge Ridge: A Great Lake Tahoe Alternative!

Family Friendly Vacation @ Dodge Ridge (Pinecrest Lake, Mi-Wuk Village, Twain Harte)

In the winter season, my family and I love to go to Dodge Ridge. It’s a great place to ski and also make snow men.

In the summer, the recreation department has a class on basket weaving taught by a really nice gal named Arvada, who is a Native American from Mi-Wuk. Arvada’s classes are fun and informative and I highly recommend taking her class.

I was fortunate  to have an Aunt and Uncle who lived in the Dodge Ridge area since childhood and I have been going there ever since.

Dodge Ridge is closer than Lake Tahoe and is very family friendly. We like to stay at the Pinecrest Inn or at the Mi-Wuk Village Inn.

If you should decide to visit, they have a great pizza place called “A Pie In The Sky”. My kids absolutely love it.

For both summer and winter vacations, I highly recommend giving the Dodge Ridge area a try! For more information visit their web site at
