Beautiful park and great beach. Worth the $10 fee to get in. Had a nice lunch on the picnic tables, swam in the clear water and took some great photos. Best part of the whole lake!

This is a true Tahoe gem. Great park in a great setting. Yes there are bears and bees but no need to scare you away. The park is very well run and the beach is amazing. If going for the day, go early. If camping...More
