Tahoe Keys is a former unincorporated community in El Dorado County, California, now incorporated in South Lake Tahoe. It lies at an elevation of 6,240 feet (1,900 m). Built in the 1960s, the community consists of over 1,500 homes adjacent to a series of canals. Its construction destroyed half of the Upper Truckee Marsh, the primary filter for river water entering the lake, and has since been called the most environmentally damaging intrusion on the lakeshore in Lake Tahoe's human history.
