Access is available to EVERYONE through daily and
seasonal passes. Additionally, passes are provided to Lakeside Park
Association property owners (motels, timeshares, vacation rentals and
homeowners) for the use of their guests. As a guest at any of the
lodging establishments within Lakeside Park Association you have daily
access to the beach and its amenities.
Additionally passes can be
purchased by any visitor, local resident, hotel or casino in the
Lakeside Park area. If you aren’t staying within Lakeside Park please
ask your hotel if they have purchased passes or contact the beach
gatekeeper to purchase daily and seasonal passes on your own. The area
can be reached by turning off Highway 50 onto Park Avenue at either the
state line or the Crescent V Shopping Center (yes, the same road hits
both spots). The beach also features a state of the art playground and
swing set as well as an old style giant metal slide. The beach
surrounds The Lakeside Beach Grill, an al fresco eatery that also has a
beachside walk up window. The swimming is decent here, but not

resulting from the Upper Truckee River, so the water is not as clear as
it is elsewhere. As with other beaches in this area and to the east,
the sand is rather coarse so bring beach shoes of some sort.
