Kings-Beach is a small town located along the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, east of Tahoe City. This is the place to go if you are looking for a more family-oriented atmosphere on the Lake, near enough to easily visit the glitz and glamour of South Lake Tahoe's casinos, but far enough away for a peaceful, relaxing time away from the crowds. Kings Beach has year-round, breathtaking scenery, from snowcapped mountains to the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe. The Kings Beach State Recreation Area covers 700 feet of lake frontage area, backed by beautiful Ponderosa Pines and small brush. This area of Lake Tahoe is often referred to as having "Old Tahoe charm," with rustic lodging, lakefront restaurants, unique gift shops and art galleries. In summertime, the surrounding terrain has some of the best hiking and biking trails in the area, swimming on nice, sandy beaches with lifeguards, golf, rock climbing, horseback riding, fishing and boating, parasailing, water skiing and more. In wintertime, Kings Beach is approximately ten minutes from Northstar Ski Resort and an easy drive to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Heavenly Ski Resort. Cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are also available near Kings Beach. For nightlife, South Lake Tahoe has world-class entertainment, restaurants, shopping and gaming.

Kings Beach Weather & Climate

The Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, just west of the Nevada state line has an alpine mountain climate. This high mountain region is known as one of the chilliest spots in the country, which comes as a big surprise to many that visit California. Nestled between the Sierra Nevada peaks, the towns of Truckee and Graeagle, and the Donner Lake region, often gets an inversion, whereby cold air is trapped overnight, thus the reason for the extreme cold temperatures in the very early morning hours - even in summertime. As the sun comes up, the temperature begins to rise and daytime highs are usually quite pleasant. Large amounts of snow are received in the higher elevations of the Sierras - up to 40 feet. Rain is possible any month of the year, although most occurs October through April. Mountain weather conditions can change quickly, and rain in the lower elevations can mean snow, sleet or ice in the higher elevations.
