Reno Whitewater Park

Water Adventures in Reno Tahoe

When it comes to wet and wild activities, Reno Tahoe is making a splash. The Truckee River winds its way through downtown Reno and Sparks, and a variety of lakes are located in the area, including beautiful Lake Tahoe, all within the shadow of the gorgeous snowcapped mountains known as the Sierra Nevada.

Also, check out the Reno River Festival online.

Lake Tahoe, Pyramid Lake and Donner Lake are superb for enjoying the water. The Truckee and Carson Rivers provide outstanding adventure opportunities. Together they offer fabulous kayaking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, all the popular forms of open-water paddling and water-sports like skiing and sailing or an outing on a personal watercraft. Scuba-diving enthusiasts can submerge and discover hard-to-beat visibility and freshwater aquatic life.

Lake Tahoe has long been considered the "Jewel of the Sierra," not only for its contributions to the scenic majesty of the area, but also for the adventure that can be sought throughout its 193-square-miles of beauty.

Looking for good fishing? Visit the Nevada Division of Wildlife Web site!

Voted #1 in outdoor fun by Rand McNally, Reno serves as the gateway to unlimited outdoor adventure with Tahoe just a short drive away; visitors can enjoy a premier four-season adventure destination!
