The Sands has put up some big art on their property this year.

The giant Chinese warrior is on front of the pool and a bigger sculpture is over on the Mel’s Diner side. I can’t remember the name of it but it lights up at night and looks like big sugar cubes. Across the street are a couple of more pieces.
Sounds fabulous! Can't wait!

The Sands got new owners in the last year. They did a few minor upgrades...
I hope they haven't renovated the plumbing, geez those fire-hose showers... 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Where can you park a larger vehicle (25 foot camper) at The Sands? When I was there last year I saw a small parking lot where I snagged a space, but this year (I hope) I will have a larger vehicle.

[Realized I could answer my own question by looking at a satellite photo of The Sands, and discovered the huge parking lot on the other side of the building-- I came in on 4th from Keystone, and parked last year in the small lot next to that funhouse supply place. ]

Unless you find a very updated satellite photo of the Sands and surrounding property it wont be accurate. A lot of the old motels are gone and a lot of those properties are fenced off. It does look like they are putting in a new parking lot across the street (Ralston) from the pool side. It’s the new company who bought the Sands that owns this lot, so most likely parking will be available there.
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Lucky's information is accurate. On the south side of The Sands, across the street from the main parking lot, is a large (and usually empty) lot that they are allowing larger vehicles to park, like box trucks and RVs.

This deal remains open and should continue that way until September 5. This is a helluva deal and I for one am taking advantage of it myself. Twice.

No you can’t, it’s public and you might be the only people for a moment, but that can change. I actually know a local who tried this, The Sands was not pleased.

We are going to be in Reno the night of the third, but we have to get the RV ready to turn in the next morning and fly home. Dayum!
