Nevada Beach and Campground

Nevada Beach is its own little adventure. The beach is best described as peaceful, quiet and huge! It is 0.7 miles long and in some places the sand is over 300 yards wide. Although this makes it a little on the windy side, the wind makes it popular for kiteboarders and can also help keep the bugs at bay. You can also enjoy boating, fishing, and water skiing. This is one of the few Lake Tahoe dog friendly beaches where you can take your dog for a dip at the south end of the beach. Another South Lake Tahoe beach that is dog friendly is Kiva Beach.

Reagan Beach

Regan Beach, the City of South Lake Tahoe’s oldest beach, is a little more secluded than El Dorado Beach. It can best be described as more of a park than a beach, with lots of grass to play and relax on. Families love the playground, sand volley ball court, observation deck, and extensive snack bar/restroom facility. Regan Beach also offers an ideal setting for weddings with its ceremony area backed by amazing Lake Tahoe views. You can access the water by several stair cases that lead down to the water, but no sand found here for the kids to build castles with. There are several South Lake Tahoe... Read more »

Kiva Beach

Featuring fantastic views of the surrounding mountains, including Mount Tallac, Kiva Beach is a hidden jewel. It can be a little difficult to find due to a lack of signs once you park, but it is well worth the effort. Enjoy free parking and a Visitor’s Center with restrooms and picnic tables, and then take a pleasant walk down a forest trail to the beach. The trail features marked signs that teach a little about the vegetation and local history. The large beach sits at the mouth of Taylor Creek. Swimming is enjoyable, but expect it to be a little rocky in some spots until you get farther from... Read more »
