Dog Information

Due to water quality issues dogs are not permitted on most public beaches. However, there are three dog beaches located within the North Tahoe Public Utility District area. The first is in Kings Beach to the left (east) of the Coon Street Boat launch as you are looking at the Lake. The second is Carnelian West Beach in Carnelian Bay, where leashed dogs are welcomed. The third is Patton Landing, also in Carnelian Bay, which provides space for people who want to spend their beach time with their leashed dogs to the east of the bridge over the wetland, while the west side of that beach is for people only. Please pick up after your pet. The Tahoe Unleashed Dog Park at the North Tahoe Regional Park in Tahoe Vista is another dog-friendly option when visiting Lake Tahoe with your four-legged companions. 

Why Do I Have to Pay to Park?

Revenue collected in the form of parking fees and concessionaire contracts is used to take care of annual maintenance, restrooms, litter and trash removal, other maintenance as needed (e.g. graffiti removal and repair of vandalism) and capital improvement projects at our Beaches and Parks. CFD 94-1 that is paid by local property owners to cover the costs of maintaining our recreation facilities does not bring in enough revenue to cover all the required maintenance at these popular beaches. Because many of these parks are owned by other agencies and maintained by the District through maintenance contracts, the District cannot utilize our limited recreation and parks funds to maintain facilities owned by other entities.

Therefore, users are required to pay fees to offset these expenses. Please help support our Parks and pay your fees to the attendant or use the envelopes provided and deposit your fees in the "Iron Ranger." Download TVRA parking and launch fees >

By utilizing District concessionaires you also help support our Parks as a portion of their revenue is returned to the District.
