Pope Beach, South Lake Tahoe Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great beach. Come here with family and friends. BBQ pits and picnic tables line the beach front. Mellow water depth keeps it warmer but the real estate also fills up real quick during the busy times in the summer. Wake up early, get here and lay down your blanket!

  • I enjoyed it here. The beach is usually very clean, but I can get really crowded during the weekends. The parking is also only eight dollars, which isn't the worst price to pay. I recommend coming here.

  • Great place to soak in the water and the view. The walk to the beach from the parking lot is short. Watch for the Canadian geese-they can be aggressive! There's even a mobile snack bar. It can be crowded though.

  • This is our go to beach, but get with the times and start accepting cards! Experiencing all of our beautiful state parks would be much easier if they accepted modern forms of payment. An app perhaps if not card? Bring cash only (no change unless you want some serious attitude and head shaking ) our spot at the end of the parking lot has a major red ant population. Each of us was bitten last visit. Feeling like it's time to branch out in hopes of finding a new shady beach.

  • The beach is fantastic, but it needs it's services expanded. Unless you pee in the water, you had at least a 15 minute wait to use the bathroom. They were filthy and out of soap all three days we used the beach. Don't even think about pooping. The water was super clear and it has very unique and beautiful orange sand. We will probably come back here again someday if we come to south lake Tahoe. We would give it a five star rating if the bathrooms were upgraded and soap was available.
