Kings Beach State Recreation Area Is An Outdoors Fun Zone

Summary

Features: Kings Beach State Recreation Area is just as much fun for Grandma and Grandpa as it is for young Johnny and Sue. Kings Beach SRA has a play area for kids, kayak and paddle board rentals for the sporty ones in your group, and swimming in the lake for all interested parties.

Why We Go: The hardest decision you'll be making when you come to Kings Beach Recreation is which fun activity you want to do first.

  • The Water: Swim like the fish at heart that you are. Kings Beach SRA boasts water that is sparkling and clear!
  • The BBQ Grills: Throw hot dogs and burgers onto the flaming hot grill. Guests love coming to Kings Beach State Park and barbecuing up an amazing feast.
  • The Rentals Area: Unleash your inner professional athlete. You can do that by renting kayaks and paddle boards at Kings Beach SRA. Get out on the water and show your friends and family (and other admiring onlookers) what you've got. You can even rent a jet ski, sailboat, or paddle boat, as well as go parasailing.

Inside Knowledge: For the most relaxing experience, make your visit to Kings Beach SRA during the weekdays. Spread your things out and enjoy the bountiful amount of space that you have to yourself. Leave the crowds to those coming on weekends! For you, Kings Beach State Park is going to provide you the most peaceful time.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Expect To Pay For Parking: You'll pay $8 for a spot in Kings Beach Recreation's parking lot.
  • Do Rent Toys: You and yours can speed around the water on jet skis or get an upper body workout in kayaks. Buy yourself a fun time with one of the many equipment rentals. 
  • Don't Eat At A Restaurant: Have fun and make your own meal. Buy food that you can barbecue on the grill and prepare it at Kings Beach SRA.
  • Don't Dress For Tropical Weather: It's certainly not the Bahamas, and you'll want to wear layered clothing. You can remove layers from your outfit when you feel warm and add layers back on when you start to feel cold.

Nice but not the best beach in Lake Tahoe

Kings Beach is definitely a nice place, but it’s nothing special, especially compared to some of the other beaches in Lake Tahoe. But lets be honest, there’s no bad beach on the lake, it’s just that this one isn’t the best. However, I did only visit it during the winter, and I’m sure it’s much better in the height of summer! One of the things I didn’t like is the you have to pay for expensive parking, which really sucks. But you can maybe find street parking across the street and just walk. They do have BBQ grills set up and in the summer you can even rent equipment like jetskis and stuff to use. If you’re staying in North Lake and this is convenient for you, then check it out, but don’t go out of your way for this beach or anything. There are better ones like Zephyr Cove and San Harbor.
