Helpful Information

no dogs allowed; no glass containers; no campfires or portable charcoal grills on the beach

GRILLS: The Forest Service requires the use of portable gas grills instead of wood or charcoal.  This reduces the risk of fires from hot coals and helps keep the beaches clean from ashes.

KEEP IT CLEAN: Lake Tahoe is recognized as an Outstanding Natural Resource Water. Please, join your fellow beachgoers in protecting this special place! Begin by being an example to others:

  • Dispose of trash properly or pack it out.
  • Keep your butt in your pants - the sand is not an ashtray.
  • Never feed birds, squirrels or any other wildlife.
  • Wood and charcoal fires or grills are NEVER permitted on Tahoe beaches.
  • Portable gas grills are allowed with a valid CA Campfire Permit.

VEGETATION: Protect Tahoe plants! Keep outside signed or fenced protected habitat.

SWIM and BOAT SMART: Very cold water, sudden storms and unexpected waves deserve respect. Be alert!

PET OWNERS: Pets are permitted only on dog-friendly beaches. Use a bag to pick up after your pet, and use a leash. Protect your pet's privilege to share the beach!

BOATERS: Aquatic invasive species are a very serious threat - completely clean, drain and dry your boat before launching it at Tahoe.

FISHING: Any person over 16 years old must have a valid California or Nevada sport fishing license. Visit one of the many Lake Tahoe fishing sites to learn more about fishing and the special regulations that are enforced at Tahoe.

THE COAST GUARD AT TAHOE: The station near Tahoe City operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Call 9-1-1 in an emergency and give the name of this beach!
