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

Dispose of trash properly or pack it out.
Never feed birds, squirrels or any other wildlife.
Campfires are NEVER allowed on Tahoe beaches.
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: Dogs prohibited, swimming beach only. Dogs allowed on leash in picnic areas. 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.
