Reservation System Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is Nevada State Parks implementing a reservation system?
A: Over the past several years, as more and more people turn to the outdoors as a vacation destination, Nevada State Parks has welcomed a record number of visitors. In response to the increased demand for camping and day-use facilities, and to effectively and sustainably manage Nevada’s natural resources, State Parks is in the process of selecting and implementing a reservation system.
Q: When will the reservation system be launched?
A: We are currently in the contract phase and do not have a scheduled launch date, however, we hope to have the first parks online by early 2023.
Q: How will the reservation system be rolled out?
A: Parks will be phased into the reservation system over time. Once the reservation system is launched, check with the park you are planning to visit to see if they are currently on the system.
Q: What types of reservations will be available in the future?
A: Nevada State Parks plans to offer reservations at campsites and cabins, as well as day-use reservations at select parks, and event reservation for special events.
Q: Why will Nevada State Parks require reservations for some day-use parks such as Sand Harbor?
A: Visitation has increased dramatically at parks such as Sand Harbor over the past decade, resulting in increased public safety risks and extended wait times for parking spaces. Limited parking, combined with high visitation, leads to unsafe illegal parking on highways. The reservation system will better manage visitation levels, allow visitors to plan their trip in advance, and reduce overcrowding. In this way, the system will improve the overall visitor experience while also enhancing the protection and preservation of the surrounding natural resources.
Q: Do any state parks currently offer reservations?
A: Some Nevada State Parks with cabins or group-use areas require an advanced reservation. These reservations are handled by each individual park. Please contact the park you plan to visit to find out how to reserve an accommodation.
