Bounded in by the banks of Lake Tahoe to the south and the border of Nevada to the east, Kings Beach is one of Tahoe’s lesser-known destinations. The area in general is one of northern California’s finest with lush pine forests, jagged mountain ranges, and a sparkling blue lake. The town itself is a humble lake town that’s a bit less rowdy than its neighbors. With a year-round population hovering 4,000 people, it has all the iconic small town facilities -- one post office, a main street, homey restaurants, a general store, and outdoor music venues. Come here to relax or get active during the summer time, or use Kings Beach as a base camp for your winter excursions when the snow falls.
