Kings Beach State Recreation Area, Kings Beach
(4.2/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
KBSRA's 979 feet of lakefront is the largest public access sandy beach on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The wide stretch of white sand that makes up Kings Beach is a favorite of visitors and residents alike. Its south facing aspect and a lake floor that gradually deepens, makes this one of the warmest swimming areas on the Lake. The beach is adjacent to the Kings Beach Plaza (see description below).

A beautiful playground area overlooks the water and gives the kids a place to play after they have tired of playing in the Lake. One picnic area near the playground is available for rental by groups, but generally BBQ and picnic areas are available on a first come, first served basis.

  • Great views. Nice and quiet. I cant think of anything that is worth 100 characters. I think its a bit much. 
  • Took bike ride for hours. Nice slow ride and able to take in all the views. Very pretty and breath taking. Would do it again and again.
