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.
During the summertime, activities in Kings Beach largely revolve around the lake culture. Waterskiing and wakeboarding are big attractions, as well as parasailing and stand-up paddleboarding. They even have a “jetovator” were you strap a jetpack to your back and get propelled 20 feet above the water. In the town, there’s a few fun diners, pizza restaurants and bars, with many establishments hosting live music nights during the summer. During the winter, Kings Beach is within a stone’s throw from some of the best ski resorts in Northern California including Heavenly and North Tahoe. Other activities in the area include snowmobiling, off-roading, and golfing.
The best time to visit Kings Beach largely depends on what kind of activities you're interested in. Its seasons vary widely in temperature with the summer seeing most tourists. Sprawling out on the beaches and swimming in the lake are hard to pass up, but the winter activities are equally entertaining.
