But if you’ve never tried parasailing, you might want to add in this high altitude fun. Such Kings Beach activities will reward you with some unimpeded, amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains! Have you ever tried standup paddleboarding? It doesn’t matter if you’re well-balanced or a bit of a klutz, this sport is among Kings Beach’s most popular, and it really isn’t hard once you try it for a while. Just make sure to get a board that’s right for your size.

Fishing for trout or salmon has been a favorite Kings Beach activity for many years. But remember to purchase a fishing license before dropping a hook.

Including North Shore

Prefer to stay dry while enjoying the numerous Kings Beach things to do? Well, then, hiking is very popular. Along the sands of Kings Beach State Recreation Area is one route.

If you are unsure where other trails begin, simply pull off to the side of the road where cars congregate, lace up your boots and start walking.
