Sand Harbor Beach

New Washoe City, Nevada

based on 6 reviews


Added by Jamie Fleck

Sand Harbor is a family friendly beach. It has all the amenities of a first rate (KOA) campground.

This is what you would call a family beach. It is clean, beautiful, and well maintained. The admission price for vehicles has gone up quite a bit, but based on the economy and the fact that this park remains clean and glass-free, you really cannot complain. The beach gets pretty crowded and they will close the gates when parking is full so your best bet is to arrive before noon. The sand is soft and warm and the water, although a bit chilly, is clear as the blue sky. Kids love splashing in the water while adults enjoy soaking up the sun with a beautiful view. 

 If you don't want to spend a lot of money, but want to treat the family go to Latin Soul great food and service.

Sand Harbor Beach Reviews

Sand Harbor is best in September. Crowds are thinned and water temp is still good.
