Change of Plans due to Yosemite Fire

We are flying from the east coast into San Francisco on August 12th and were planning on heading straight to Yosemite. Now, due to the fires the park is closed so we were thinking of either going to Lake Tahoe or Sequoia Nat'l Park. We have 3 sports obsessed boys ages 12, 11 and 9 who very active. I don't know anything about Lake Tahoe and was wondering if anyone could suggest places to stay, activities and towns to visit. We are looking for nicer accommodations that hopefully have sports activities included or nearby. Is there enough to do for 2 1/2 days? Thank you in advance!

We spend a week every July at the Hyatt in Incline Village. It's 45 min from Reno on the Mt Rose Hwy. so much to do. We have a 14 year old. Rent kayaks, boats, bikes, private lakefront beach, lounge chairs, lots of restaurants, a casino off the lobby, a huge pool and Still Water Spa.

Sand Harbor is in Incline two miles from Hyatt. Best crystal clear water beach.

If you stay in South Lake Tahoe Bijou park has a very good skateboard park, Disc Golf course, etc.

There is also an ice skating rink, golf courses.

If you decide to pay and do the Heavenly Gondolas, there is the Epic Discovery Park

The Edgewood recently won an award for the nicest resort hotel in the US. We need to plan a visit there! 😎
