Beaches of Lake Tahoe
Lake Tahoe has absolutely
fantabulous beaches. Here is a list with some information about the
high and low points of all the major ones. Before heading to any beach
on a busy summer afternoon, you should have a parking plan, or better
yet, an alternative form of transportation. In any case, you should
expect to pay for parking at most of the nicer Tahoe area beaches. Also
check out this Tahoe
Beaches Map. On the South Shore, one season pass from the
forest service gives access to Pope, Baldwin, and Nevada Beaches (camping not
included). For those of you with smart phones (that's everyone, right), get the Tahoe Beaches App, brought to you at no charge from the Tahoe Fund.
