Not at all crowded since it’s December. Very pleasant and peaceful to walk along the beach with a brisk, cool wind and splashing of water. Beautiful setting with snow capped peaks in the horizon and tall pine trees everywhere. Worth a visit even in winter....More

This beach is clean, spacious, plenty of parking and perfect! The dog beach area at the south end is the best I have found. The sand is a little rough on the feet but it is a new favorite stop in Tahoe.

I am not sure. It is near campgrounds and I don't believe it is fenced off or under ranger control except at the campground entrance. We walked from highway and saw no barriers.

If you plan to get a parking space, or even a spot on the beach plan to be their at 4:00am to 5:00am and stay there until 9:00 pm when the fire works go off. Honestly i live in the area and its not worth it.
