Welcome to Kings Beach, the largest public beach on the North Shore! Explore its nearly 700 feet of shoreline or spend the day on the water with a rental from North Tahoe Watersports. Rent a Jet Ski, kayak, water bike, or paddle boat, or enjoy a parasailing ride or private lake tour. Swimmers claim Kings Beach has one of the warmest beaches on Lake Tahoe do to the fact that it is south-facing and has a gradually deepening lake floor. There is a parking fee, but walkers and bikers can use the beach at no charge.

Enjoy a stroll on the walking paths that meander throughout King Beach Plaza and its patio-style courtyard. It is the site of many special events, including the summertime arts and crafts fairs. This beach is dialed with bathrooms, a basketball court, volleyball courts, horseshoes, barbeque and picnic areas, and a lakefront playground. The recreation area is in downtown Kings Beach, just off of Highway 28.

Kings Beach allows dogs at Dog Beach which is located at the east of the Park beyond the boat ramp – the rocky area. Dogs are welcome so long as they are on a leash on the sidewalks and picnic table areas. Dogs are not allowed on the sandy beach at Kings Beach SRA year round.
