Beginning May 28, boat ramp hours at Sand Harbor and Cave Rock will be extended to 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and remain at these hours until they either close for the season or close due to low water levels.

Nevada State Parks urges visitors to enjoy a safe boating season by observing water safety practices. Always wear a life jacket, don’t mix alcohol and boating, check the weather forecast before you go and file a float plan.

When swimming, be aware that high altitudes may cause you to tire more quickly, remember that cold water will take your breath away and be sure to enter water slowly to allow your body time to acclimate to cold temperatures.
