In 2011, the gate to Van Sickle Bi-State Park opened to welcome visitors and we are incredibly lucky that this 573 acre park is across the street from Forest Suites Resort. Every year the park opens for the summer & fall months. The park is a perfect setting for hiking, picnicking, mountain biking & horseback riding. Henry Van Sickle donated the land in 1989 to create a new Nevada State Park. The State of California purchased the adjacent land, the Van Sickle family’s former Crescent V Ranch, to connect the park to the community of South Lake Tahoe. Straddling the California-Nevada border, the park is the product of a partnership between the states of Nevada and California. The park’s unique location provides the opportunity for our guests to access Tahoe’s outdoor environment without having to drive from their accommodations — the adventure begins right outside of the hotel door. The newly-constructed infrastructure for the park – including an access drive for vehicles, utilities, restrooms, picnic sites, trails and trailhead – will enable the park’s gate to open for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians to enjoy their public land. The Daggett Summit Spur trail, the Tahoe Rim Trail connector being constructed down slope from the ridge line to the park, further expands the park’s recreation opportunities well beyond its boundary.
