July 20, 2015 (Monday) Sand Harbor Paint-Out

It won't be empty like this!
Note:  even though it is summer and it gets crowded with family beach goers, the trail along the point offers more secluded painting scenes.

Date:          July 20, 2015 (Monday)
Time:          9:00 am  Don't be late!  It gets full in summer around 11am!  I believe it opens at 8:00 - if you come that early it will be lovely and quiet!
Place:          Sand Harbor State Park, Incline
Meet:          No host - no particular meeting place
Fee:            about $10 per car if you don't have a year placquard
Amenities:    bathrooms, snack shack offers lunch and beverages and soft icecream
Restrictions:  no dogs

What to bring:

  • park entry fee money (about $10)
  • your lunch and beverage or purchase there
  • hat, sunscreen, sunglasses
  • bug spray (bee season)
  • your painting gear 
  • your beach and/or water recreation needs
  • cell phone
  • camera
  • folding chair?


From Reno:  Take the Mt. Rose Hwy(431) to Incline.  Turn left at Country Club Drive (there is a sign that says "Sierra Nevada College" - that is the turn).  At Hwy 28 (the road that goes along the lake) turn left.  Go south on this road about 3 miles.  Sand Harbor is on your right.  The boat launch parking is the first turn.  The main entrance for people without boats is the next entrance.  

From South Lake Tahoe - take HWY 50 towards Carson City.  At the summit get in the right turning lane and turn right on Hwy 28.  Go about 10 miles towards Incline.  Sand Harbor will be on your left before you get to Incline Village.
