Stand-Up Paddleboard at the Sparks Marina


Added by Josiah Roe

Gorgeous views of the Sierra Nevada mountains just minutes from downtown Reno

The Sparks Marina, just minutes from downtown Reno, is a convenient and fun place to learn how to SUP or to spend an afternoon out on the lake.

The Sparks Marina Park has ample parking and several places to put in, but there are also numerous others around the marina, including a lovely inlet on the east side that runs under several bridges and feels like a canal better suited for Venice, Italy.

Calm and Easy

The Sparks Marina is very accessible and a great option if you need to get out for the day, especially with the calm waters. It doesn't really feel like getting away, though, since it is right next to a mall and off the freeway.

Fun for families

Fun man made marina! Such a great place for families. I remember my brother and I coming here for the day with my grandparents. Kayaking is super fun and easy here since the water is so calm.
