Sandy Beach

The waters and white sandy beaches of Alcova Reservoir beckon and Sandy Beach is the perfect location to enjoy both. Just a slight jog off of Lake Shore Drive and you're ready to ease down the hill, beach towels and blankets in hand, to bask in the glow of a giant summer sun. Sandy Beach also affords the opportunity for swimming and beach volleyball. Map (PDF)
