INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – The Nevada Division of State Parks is taking the crap shoot out of getting into Sand Harbor State Park and making it a sure thing. 

Beginning July 1, Sand Harbor State Park day-use reservations will go live at http://www.reservenevada.com to secure entry for Aug. 17 and later. At that point, reservations will be required for vehicle entry on weekends and holidays from park opening until 10:30 a.m. 

“What’s really driving the need for the reservation system is the traffic congestion primarily in the mornings,” said said Bob Mergell, Administrator of the Nevada Division of State Parks. “Right now we open at 7 a.m. So people will start lining up as early as 4:30 a.m. At some point traffic backs up on the highway and nobody can pass.”
