The gates to Van Sickle Bi-State Park are now closed for the winter season.

While park facilities, such as restrooms, are closed for winter, the park grounds remain open year-round, according to a press release from California Tahoe Conservancy (CTC). Services, such as trash collection, are suspended for the winter.

Visitors are reminded to park legally and avoid blocking the gates when visiting the park over the winter. Paid parking is available at the parking garage at Heavenly Village.

Van Sickle offers terrain for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. However, sledding is not permitted in the park.

“Van Sickle Bi-State Park represents a long held vision and partnership between the states of California and Nevada and a fantastic recreational opportunity here at Lake Tahoe,” Patrick Wright, CTC executive director, said in the release. “We encourage the public to enjoy this beautiful park throughout the year.”

The park entrance is located at the intersection of Heavenly Village Way and Montreal Road in South Lake Tahoe. Visit for more information about the park.
