Some bodies of water are filled with many islands. One famous lake that’s not known for its islands is Lake Tahoe. The famous body of water spans over 122 million acre-feet and has a larger volume of water than almost every other lake in the country. It’s also among the deepest lakes in the United States. You may be surprised to learn that in all that square footage, there’s not a single island…except for one. Fannette Island is the only island in Lake Tahoe.

Lake Tahoe is almost too beautiful to even be real. It’s truly amazing to think that in all that water, there’s only one island! Did you know that there were no other islands in Lake Tahoe?
