Las Vegas does not have to be all about partying. If you want to take a break from the strip and go paddleboarding on Vegas, this article will provide all the best spots.
SUP Las Vegas
Reflection Bay Golf Club + the MonteLago Village/resort
There are some great spots around the lake to go Paddleboarding; one of our favorites is the Reflection Bay Golf Club, only 25mins from Vegas strip. If you are looking for a bit of time to yourself, this is the ideal spot as it is usually pretty quiet.
With a beautiful white sand beach and guaranteed Sun, what could go wrong? Also, if you are feeling hungry, take a look around the golf club as you may have missed the café which serves your usual wraps and sandwiches as well as a nice cup of coffee. If you don’t have your own SUP you can also rent one from the Golf Club; there aren’t any signs which are probably one of the reasons this place is still so quiet, but we aren’t complaining! They also rent out some good children size SUPs.
If you have the time and money, we would highly recommend spending a day having a game of Golf and/or Tennis as well as disappearing to the other side of the lake to enjoy some relaxing time on the water, don’t forget Las Vegas SUP and Kayak club on this side so you don’t necessarily have to travel to the other side (information below). If this is your first time visiting Monte Lago Village resort but don’t worry you will be amazed by the pure beauty of the resort.
Las Vegas SUP and Kayak Club
Las Vegas SUP and Kayak Club are also on the other side of the Lake for any inexperienced Paddle Boarders. They have an astonishing 5-star rating on Facebook from 87 reviews and a 4.8 out of 5 rating on yelp.
Professional trainers will help you improve your SUP skills no matter your level and offer a canoeing experience should you want to try something different. Their sunset paddleboarding includes neon light and glow sticks and can only be described as magical.
Paddleboarding in Nevada
If you are willing to travel from Vegas, there are a few amazing spots within driving distance. But Nevada is a huge state, getting up to Lake Tahoe will take you around 7 hours, so plan to make it a road trip!
SUP Vegas FAQs
Can I bring my own paddleboard to Lake Las Vegas?
Absolutely! Lake Las Vegas welcomes visitors to bring their own paddleboards. However, it’s always a good idea to check the current rules and regulations before you visit, as these may change from time to time.
Do you have to wear a life jacket on a paddleboard in Nevada?
Yes, according to Nevada state law, all paddleboarders must have a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket with them on the board. Children aged 12 and under are required to wear a life jacket at all times while paddleboarding.
Do you have to pay to go to Lake Las Vegas?
Access to Lake Las Vegas is generally free, but certain activities, events, or private establishments around the lake may charge fees. Again, it’s always a good idea to confirm any potential costs or entrance fees before you plan your visit.
How deep does the water have to be to paddleboard?
While there isn’t a strict rule, it’s recommended that the water should be at least a few feet deep when paddle boarding. This is to prevent your paddle or board from hitting the bottom, which could cause damage or disrupt your balance. However, remember that you should only paddle board in depths that you feel comfortable with, especially if you’re a beginner or not a confident swimmer.
