Jump in to Tahoe Beaches App

The Tahoe Fund is once again promoting the Tahoe Beaches App to help beachgoers find their way to more than 50 public beaches around the Lake.

The app, available in iTunes and Google Play, allows visitors to plan their Tahoe experience with images and details about beach amenities, including barbecues, boat rentals, pet restrictions, and public transportation at more than 50 public beaches. Twitter feeds enable real time information from the public agencies managing the beaches. Users can post their favorite beaches to Facebook and invite family and friends to join them. The app also includes stewardship information to encourage protecting the environment.

Tahoe Fund developed the app, co-funded by the California Tahoe Conservancy through the Lake Tahoe License Plate Program. California Tahoe Conservancy, California State Parks, Tahoe City PUD, North Tahoe PUD, Nevada Division of State Parks, the U.S. Forest Service and Tahoe Transportation District collaborated to develop the app.
