Great beach to bring your water toys and relax in the sun. Bring your kayak, water paddle board etc for easy access to the water. A very popular beach come early.

This is another great view of Lake Tahoe. If you've never been to Lake Tahoe put it on your list. And this state park, a beach, is a nice place to see the 50 mile diameter lake.
