This small rocky beach has picnic tables, restrooms and a nature trail. This beach is great for dogs, but bring water shoes because it's very rough on human feet. Leashed dogs are allowed on the eastern portion of the beach. Mutt Mitt clean-up bags available onsite.

The beach is next to Sierra Boat Works on North Lake Blvd. Parking is conveniently close to the beach. Watermans Landing, a beachfront cafe and dog-friendly stand-up paddleboard operation, offers tables where you can park for awhile. Dogs are also allowed on on the deck of the cafe.

Help us keep this beach beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules
• Respect natural marine life and habitats
• Be aware of tides and currents
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints

Lake Tahoe —aka “Big Blue—is Northern California’s favorite summer playground, but to enjoy it to the fullest with your B4LF (best four-legged friend), you’ll need to do your homework before heading up the hill. While there are quite a few places where you can stroll the shoreline with Fido on a leash, strands where you can legally cut the cord are few and far between. more »

Of course you can take your dog swimming in Lake Tahoe! True, dogs aren't welcome everywhere, but that's not to say that canine-friendly splash spots don't exist.  You’ll have to rise and shine with the early birds to snag a parking spot along Highway 28 south of Incline Village, but your efforts will pay off when you find a trail leading to a pocket cove with soft white sand, crystal-clear water and sensuously sculpted rocks where you can hang out for the morning or the day. more »
