Kings Beach State Recreation Area, Kings Beach

(4.3/5 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.

  • We were going to Northstar for South Lake Tahoe when we had the happy idea of stop at Kings Beach to watch the sunset. The place is amazing, setting for beautiful photos! Was super empty and stayed for a while contemplating all that energy of nature.

  • We were staying at the Biltmore for my husband's dart tournament. We were sight seeing and kings beach was one of the sights. It is amazing there. Very clean and we'll maintained, if you are ever in the area this is a location you must see. It's beautiful there. Very busy location, but has plenty of parking
  • Beautiful scenery of the lake. Not much here other than that.
  • Beautiful view. Open space.
  • Kings Beach is a popular destination for hanging out at Tahoe. Been here many times with family and friends. Families with kids will enjoy this beach also. The sun can get you burnt pretty fast at altitude. Don't forget to bring sunblock and sunglasses.
  • This is the cutest little town! The beach is a great place for family entertainment and dog play.
