Nevada Beach and Campground

Nevada Beach and Campground

This beach is located about a mile from the parking lot at Highway 50 and Kahle Drive.

A portion of this .7-mile-long beach, one of the most beautiful at Tahoe, is dog-friendly. Most of the strand is attached to Nevada Beach Campground, where dogs are allowed in campsites but not picnic areas near the water. To find the dog-friendly strand, follow the signs and trails to the boat-in picnic beach.

A paved bike trail and maze of hiking trails leads through the section of Toiyabe National Forest bordering the lake. It’s about a mile along the historic Lam Watah Trail from the (free) parking lot at Highway 50 and Kahle Drive, just north of the Lakeside Resort Casino. In season (mid-May through mid-October), you can access the beach via the campground for an $8 day-use fee.

Once at the sand, stay right of the fenced-off private beach and left of the orange buoy marking the border of the campground swimming beach.

Campground reservations can be made as far as six months in advance. Tent sites are $32, and there’s an extra charge of $7 per night for a second vehicle.
