What To Do
South Lake Tahoe Lakeside Beach is one of the finest sand beaches on Lake Tahoe. While privately managed by Lakeside Park Association for its member properties, Access is available to EVERYONE through daily and seasonal passes. Additionally, passes are provided to Lakeside Park Association property owners (motels, timeshares, vacation rentals and homeowners) for the use of their guests. As a guest at any of the lodging establishments within Lakeside Park Association you have daily access to the beach and its amenities. Additionally passes can be purchased by any visitor, local resident, hotel or casino in the Lakeside Park area. If you aren’t staying within Lakeside Park please ask your hotel if they have purchased passes or contact the beach gatekeeper to purchase daily and seasonal passes on your own.
Lakeside Beach provides you a quiet moment to reflect on the beauty of Lake Tahoe. Our beach enables you to take a refreshing dip in the water, have a leisurely picnic on the sands or eat and drink at the adjacent Lakeside Beach Grill. The beach has breakwaters to protect swimmers, a restaurant, children’s play equipment, a volleyball net, restful benches, picnic tables, a restroom and is monitored by a lifeguard. Umbrellas and chairs can be rented on site. Boat, jet ski and other rentals are available as well as at the adjacent Lakeside Marina.
Lakeside Beach, Lakeside Beach Grill and Lakeside Marina are situated in the heart of South Lake Tahoe and are within walking distance of quality lodging, upscale restaurants, inspired shopping and the casino corridor.
The north end (right as you are facing the lake) of the Lakeside Park Beach is improved with a walkway and seating. It is available for scheduled picnics, family reunions and weddings. To avoid any scheduling conflicts, it is asked that all groups coordinate their event by telephoning 530-545-8453 or go to lakeside beach weddings
