KBSRA is the flagship beach site in the North Tahoe area. KBSRA's 1,700 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.
Kings Beach State Recreation Area is a California State Recreation Area owned and operated by California State Parks. Contact State Parks at (530) 583-3075 with any questions regarding this property.
