This beach, like most beaches at Lake Tahoe, is at a beautiful location. Unfortunately, it's close to the road that goes around the lake and you always hear road noise. Also, the water gets deep close to shore, giving this beach its dark blue color and some of the coldest water at the lake. Beware that this water isn't for swimmers who like to stay in a long time and swim long distances. But it's a great kayak location for paddling past the nice homes to the south. The campground is located close by but in the past I found it very noisy from road traffic and was annoyed by the nightly bear visits. Quieter campgrounds are found at Sugar Pine Point and Fallen Leaf Lake.
