Stateline (formerly, Lakeside and Laphams)[2] is a former unincorporated community in El Dorado County, California, now incorporated into South Lake Tahoe, California.[1] It lies at an elevation of 6279 feet (1914 m).[1] As its name suggests, it is at the state line with Nevada.

A post office operated at Stateline from 1901.[2] The name Laphams commemorates William W. Lapham who opened a hotel here in the 1850s.[2]
