State Recreation Area - Nevada
Lahontan State Recreation Area is a public recreation area surrounding Lake Lahontan, an impoundment of the Carson River, located approximately 18 miles (29 km) west of Fallon, Nevada. The reservoir is nearly 17 miles (27 km) long and features 69 miles (111 km) of shoreline and 10,000 acres (4,000 ha) of water when full. Most of the park lies below 4,000 feet (1,200 m) in elevation and is dominated by high desert sagebrush; cottonwoods and willow trees can be found along the shore of the lake. Primary access points to the park are along U.S. Route 50 near the Lahontan Dam and off U.S. Route 95 in the town of Silver Springs. A corridor known as Carson River Ranches connects Lahontan with Fort Churchill State Historic Park.
