Stateline is a census-designated place (CDP) on the east shore of Lake Tahoe in Douglas County, Nevada, United States. The population was 1,215 at the 2000 census. The population swells considerably during the busy winter and summer seasons, due to the high number of hotel rooms and rental accommodations available.

Attractions

Stateline is home to 5 open casinos, 4 of which qualify as resorts - MontBleu (formerly Caesar's), Harrah's Lake Tahoe, Horizon, and Harvey's Lake Tahoe. The Lakeside Inn caters to locals and modest gamblers.

Many of the hotels in the neighboring town of South Lake Tahoe, California organize buses to take residents to the casinos in Stateline. Stateline and South Lake Tahoe are effectively one town, with the state line intersecting with U.S. Route 50 immediately after the Harrah's and Harvey's casinos.

Another well-known feature of Stateline is Kingsbury Grade (State Route 207), which runs up and over a mountain pass, rising from Lake Tahoe and dropping down to Gardnerville on the other side. Most of Stateline's residential and seasonal accommodation, amenities and services are located on or near Kingsbury Grade. The route can be difficult in the winter months and snowchains are essential during this time. Larger vehicles are required to allow traffic to pass when 5 or more vehicles are queueing behind them.
