Help! Day Pass to Burnt Cedar Beach for non-residents?

HI there, we just moved to the Reno area and stumbled upon Burnt Cedar Beach on a day visit to Lake Tahoe. I know you have to have recreation/punch card to enter and that you have to be an Incline Resident. Is there anyway to purchase a day pass somehow without renting or staying there there? We have family coming to visit and would love to spend an afternoon there - it was one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen and I've seen many!! Perhaps just getting a room at one if the affordable motels even if we don't stay there??

Thanks so much in advance!!!

I have no first hand knowledge, but I think you may have to find another beach. Here are the official rules:

Here is more information about the punch cards. It doesn't look like the general public can purchase those, but who knows.

I would call them to find out if there are any options:

Have you checked out Sand Harbor, a couple miles from Incline Village? I think it's one of the most beautiful beaches in Lake Tahoe.

I am an Incline resident. The beaches are maintained by our IVGID fees and taxes and are not for public use. Guests of the Hyatt can access if they purchase day passes ($12/person) Even local renters do not all have beach access. Try Sand Harbour.

Parkside Inn at Incline says their guests have access to the private beaches. I'd try them since their rates are pretty low. We typically rent a vacation rental and try to make sure passes are available from the owners. That really is a fantastic beach - it's no wonder they limit access!
