Kings Beach Summer Activities

Kings Beach buzzes with hustle and bustle in the summertime. With its plentiful and picturesque beaches, Kings Beach summer activities provide opportunities to enjoy a little sun, sand and water. The beaches range from easy to access to a bit more isolated, so depending on what you’re looking for, finding a great spot is easy. Some of the beaches offer grills, picnic tables and patios making them perfect spots for a lakeside cookout – a classic Kings Beach thing to do. There are even boat launches at certain locations that allow you to escape to the center of the lake – an ideal spot for fishing. Kings Beach summer activities also bring you live musicians jamming on the beaches during the evenings. Several beach locations are pet friendly, so you and your furry friend can enjoy the surf and sand together. Thanks to the quick access to water, summertime Kings Beach things to do feature lots of watersports, including kayaking, SUPing and Jet skiing.

Kings Beach summer activities extend beyond the surf and sand. Explore the area by bike or by foot with trails that can take you around the mountains and even lead you to neighboring towns!
