Kings Beach

Set beside the majestic Lake Tahoe, Kings Beach is fit for royalty but totally laidback.

Smack in the middle of North Lake Tahoe’s spectacular ski region, Kings Beach is an outstanding spot for holidaying year round. With 300 days of annual sunshine, get a tan while you ski, board, bike, golf or paddleboard. There’s a great park and playground too. But, you ask, why is it called Kings Beach? It’s named after a gambler, Joe King, and today the town is just across the border from Nevada, where gambling is legal. Sounds like this place hits all the jackpots for family fun, outdoor sports and just maybe striking it rich.
