Nevada Fire Restrictions

The 2021 Caldor Fire is 100% contained, though many South Lake Tahoe destinations remain impacted. Before you hit Desolation Wilderness, sections of the TCT and PCT, and beyond, please be aware that hazards exist with increased risk. Visitors recreating within all wilderness and recreation areas surrounding South Lake Tahoe should recreate responsibly by remaining vigilant and aware of weather conditions by checking with local authorities before heading into the backcountry.

Nevada State Parks & National Recreation Areas

  • Effective October 27, 2021, lake access at Cave Lake State Park is temporarily closed to the public as construction gets under way to restore Cave Creek Dam. The lake is currently being completely drained. While the campground is open, access to the lake will remain closed due to unsafe shoreline conditions and other safety concerns until the project is complete. Please check back for updates!
  • Spooner Lake Park Improvement Project kicks off July 2021 with access impacts to the park through the spring of 2022. The main entrance and parking lot has re-opened to public access; Spooner Backcountry trails will not be affected and will remain open, though park visitors are advised there are no facilities currently available at Spooner Lake.
  • As of April 29, 2021 Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park is closed. A reopening date has not been announced.
  • Monitor current Lake Mead water levels here

Before you head our way this winter, be sure to read up on all local COVID-19 and safety procedures that vary based on ski resort.

✨📦 It’s been a while since i’ve felt excited about shooting again. This time I’m trying to teach myself how to shoot better climbing photos and it feels all shiny and new to pick up my camera. ✨✨✨
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 
Do you have any fun photo projects on the horizon or new things you’re trying with photography?

Also if you shoot climbing photos, would love any tips! 🙏🏻 Crashpad #gifted by metoliusclimbing
#fbf for this postcard-worthy day at redrockcanyonlv. This was just after I sliced my ankle to pieces on the cog and FaceTimed nurse_catchit instead of going to the doctor. #oops I now have a gnarly scar to always remember this trip by. There’s never a bad day in this park, and I’ll be back in September. Hopefully with less injuries and a few climbing ropes this time. (Cough cough benjisaurus.) #redrockcanyon #vegasbaby #outdoorvegas #ventureready #nevada #adventure #cycling
