Chambers Landing Beach

Known for its beautiful views as well as being home to Tahoe’s oldest bar, Chambers Landing is a great beach for you and your dog alike.  Though dogs must be on a leash the gradually descending beach gives you plenty of room to take your pup in for a dip.  Want to avoid the crowds?  Visit Chambers landing in the evening for a burger and a beer and catch a breathtaking Tahoe Sunset.

Coon Street Beach

Looking for a quick dip in the lake?  Coon Street Beach is just what you need!  Centrally located in Kings Beach this beach has easy access with lots of parking options.  Though this beach is fairly rocky it’s the perfect place to cool off after a long hike.  Local tip, is your dog wondering who’s a good boy, make sure to let him know by picking up a Pupcake or Cookie at Hot Diggity Dog and Cat just down the street!
