South Fork’s southwest shore jet-ski beach area closed for construction

South Fork State Recreation Area

SPRING CREEK, Nev. — A majority of the South Fork State Recreation Area’s southwest shore (Jet-Ski Beach) area will be closed starting October 25 until further notice. The closure is for completion of a large scale renovation project.

This project will include the installation of 20 shade ramadas, which will include windscreens, four American Disabilities Act accessible picnic sites, upright grills, fire rings and picnic tables. The Coyote Cove boat launch area will also see the installation of a new single lane boat launch with a sled dock.

All closed areas will be clearly posted. All other open camping areas will remain open. The developed campground will remained closed through 2010. The R.V. dump station has been winterized but is usable for cleaning.  Nevada State Parks apologizes for any inconvenience.

Funding for this project was approximately $712,500 and was provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Sports Fishing Restoration Fund via the Nevada Department of Wildlife Boating Access/Motor Boat Fuel Tax Fund and the 2002 Question 1 Clean Water, Parks and Wildlife bond.

South Fork State Recreation Area is located approximately 17 miles from Elko, off State Route 228.
