Trip Planner: USA / California / Lake Tahoe (California) / Kings Beach / Kings Beach State Recreation Area
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).Plan to visit Kings Beach State Recreation Area and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Kings Beach attractions using our Kings Beach day trip planner.
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.

Kings Beach State Recreation Area Reviews

This was a beautiful area one of many must stops around the lake. You get a different feel here with the sandy shore line & waves it feels exactly like a beach. more »
Wij bezochten deze plek en waren enorm onder de indruk. Deze schitterende plek is makkelijk bereikbaar en heel erg rustig. more »We visited this place and were hugely impressed. This beautiful spot is easily accessible and very very quiet.
I usually am visiting in the summer and this place is packed. There is so much to do in the area, including enjoying the beach with family and friends. Up on the main strip there are a lot of great shops and places to eat. And I am not too sure there is a much better view in the world
Beautiful, really beautiful. Couldn't enjoy the waters as I visited during winter. But you can have a blast in good weather
Nice little Tahoe beach that has some sand. There is a small pier about an eight of a mile down. I think you have to pay for parking, but the place didn't appear attended during the time.
The beach is great, but its become very Gestapo like in terms of the sheriff's since it's become a state park. We used to be able to bring dogs to play and swim off season and no one hassled us. I understand when it's high season with lots of people, but to be hassled when there's barely anyone there is annoying. So long as you pick up after your dog, why is it a problem? Not what it used to be!
If you can make it back up the Hill the house that was built long ago by a swiss man for his wife is awesome thatch roof servants quarters are nice connected to house beautiful carvings on outside of house you just have to see the original Windows Emerald isle small castle was built for her tea parties You can tell he loved her very much
