With the largest, clearest, purest alpine lake in North America, it’s no surprise that millions of people from around the globe head for Lake Tahoe National Forest every year. Whether you’re looking to ski, mountain bike, hike, or sunbathe your way around Lake Tahoe, there are plenty of internationally acclaimed spots throughout that Sierra Nevada snow or sunshine that are sure to satisfy your inner recreationalist.

Meanwhile, the Mojave Desert brims with alluring Joshua tree-filled landscapes set against spectacularly vibrant mountains in and around Las Vegas, all the way to Death Valley National Park—the famously lowest, hottest, and driest place in North America.

Desert and water lovers alike can bask in hundreds of miles of shoreline at Lake Mead National Recreation Area for amazing bass fishing, cliff jumping, and boating in one of America’s most uniquely dynamic places to get outside. 

Investigate fossils from ancient Columbian mammoths, dire wolves, and saber-toothed cat fossils at the Tule Springs fossils beds at Ice Age State Park; follow the legendary Pony Express Trail through forts and ghost towns in multiple northern Nevada state parks; and discover why “Half the Park is After Dark” beneath ancient bristlecone pines at Great Basin National Park. Whatever adventure you’re chasing, Nevada’s state and national parks will help you find it. Let us be your guide.

#Camping and #fishing at #CaveLake in #Nevada. The water level was super low this year, so I got to muck around in the #mud like a #Hobbit. I caught two #RainbowTrout - #CatchAndRelease. Then we finished it off with a bratwurst dinner and a pretty #hyperlapse #sunset over the #mountains.
memorial day done right. sights were seen and lips were ripped. thankful.

well folks, nevada fishing and sunsets on my page has its days numbered.

i recently accepted a job offer far away from the silver state that i'm excited to get to work on. it's been a long three and a half months of unemployment but the time spent fishing will always be appreciated.

grateful to be back working in social and excited for the opportunity. i won't be moving for at least a month though so there's still plenty of time to rip lips and take pics. i appreciate y'all.

Day 2 of my solo mini road trip...kayaking and fishing at Eagle Valley Reservoir, exploring around Spring Valley State Park, walking around Pioche, and ending the day with a 28 mile dirt road drive to Beaver Dam State Park

While Nevada State Parks are currently closed, we can still share our memories and information for others so that they can visit once the parks open again. On our travels across the country, we have stopped at Kershaw-Ryan State Park a few times. The surrounding canyons and landscape are really impressive, and the views of the stars at night are awesome. The park itself is nestled into the canyon, and offers plenty of sites with full hookups. Camping is $25/night,  and the sites are well spaced and offer covered shelters. The showers are particularly great, they are big and private and clean - they are also coin op so bring quarters. The little store in town doesn't like to supply quarters for whatever reason so you can wait for the visitor center to be open to get change. There are hiking trails behind the camping sites and plenty of room to walk the dogs. Watch out for spiky plants, and be prepared for plenty of wind.
