Reviewed 12 July 2014

Always clean, great parking, not too "touristy". Grass, sand, volleyball, dog park, great views, just a lovely, lovely spot.

“Beautiful & Free Beach with Dog-Friendly Area”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Nice beach on beautiful Lake Tahoe. No fee to park or to get on the beach itself. There is a designated section for dogs, and a stone/tile path just above the beach itself to walk around without sand if you like.

“Nice Day Use Area”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We've been to Tahoe dozens of times and it seems like we make a new discovery each time we vacation here. This year it was Regan Memorial Park. We have often looked for a place to picnic that didn't require an admission fee. Regan is the perfect place. Great for families as it has a play area for little kids, lots of grass, a sand volley ball court, benches, several picnic tables and of course beautiful views of the lake. It is in a quiet residential area and away from the traffic noise of highway 50. Best of all it is only about a 5 minute drive from the casinos. Restrooms are included as is a ice cream sales area in the summer. Lots of parking. A great little get-away place.

“view of the lake, events, concerts,”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

It is the most central view of the lake from Hwy 50 on the south shore, but one has to bring a way to pay for the nearest parking. $5 cash or card or get a fat ticket.
My smart phone, jacket and bouquet were stolen at sunset concert at year ago, so I wouldn't bring much not glued to myself next time. It is patrolled by law, but beware and be gathered before dark.
Folks like the weekly SUP paddleboard races, handy picnic tables, and summer concerts.
