Sparks, Nevada

Stand-Up Paddleboard at the Sparks Marina

Originally 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.
