Kings Beach Picnic Area

Coon St. and Brockway, Kings Beach Calif. 96143

Adjacent to Kings Beach Boat Launch Facility and Kings Beach State Recreation Area, Kings Beach Picnic Area is the perfect spot for small picnics at its one acre shaded picnic area and rocky beach.  Dogs are allowed, but it is very rocky especially in high lake water years.  Paid parking is available at its large parking lot, which is shared with the boat launch.  Restrooms are available in spring, summer and fall months, and the beach is close to many shops and restaurants in downtown Kings Beach.
