Baldwin Beach, a part of the USDA Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, is a great place to enjoy the nature that Tahoe has to offer. The wide-open, sandy beach includes dunes and is often uncrowded. Baldwin provides restrooms and some picnic tables, and there is a nearby campground for overnighters. The parking, which costs $10 (subject to change) per vehicle, is convenient for those who bring kayaks or other water toys as well as for visitors lugging umbrellas and other beach gear. Baldwin Beach is a terrific spot for those who enjoy a peaceful day at the beach. Campfires and charcoal are not allowed at Baldwin Beach, but you may have a gas stove with a valid, California Campfire Permit obtainable online.
