Boca Reservoir

Tahoe National Forest, Truckee

An easy 15 minutes drive east of Truckee on Interstate 80 brings you to Boca reservoir, a popular spot for water recreation of all kinds. Drive right up to the water’s edge on the eastern shore and launch a kayak or paddleboard, or swim, have a picnic, or play toss a tennis ball around with your furry friend. Waters are calmest in the morning or evening. Note that Boca reservoir can get busy on summer weekends, so consider visiting midweek.
