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.

Spring Valley: ✅. 16/22 @NVStateParks in the books. Very challenging 3-4 mile hike. @TravelNevada #SteveInParks #BattleBorn #NVLeg #HomeMeanaNevada https://t.co/tMDiRSq7FO
Cathedral Gorge: ✅. 15/22 @NVStateParks in the books. Some kind of majestic! And lots of great hiking. Might be my new favorite. ❤️ @TravelNevada #SteveInParks #BattleBorn #NVLeg #HomeMeanaNevada https://t.co/TsdxFl9Lvo
At nearly 9200', Treasure City is among the highest (if not *the* highest) ghost towns in Nevada. Established in the late 1860s, many stone buildings remain near the crest of Treasure Hill.

Sand harbor in the clouds.  Watching these clouds quickly form and disappear in less than 5 minutes was pretty cool!! So glad I wasn’t in a hurry to get back to the car after this long hike.  #sandharbor #nevadastateparks #tahoenorth #renotahoeusa #outdoorphotomag tahoenorth tahoequarterly renotahoe renoairport nikonusa
This guy seems pretty friendly, but at one time ichthyosaurs ruled the ocean. Of course, that was between 100 million and 225 million years ago. Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park is where many of these ancient marine reptile fossils were discovered and is still a popular place to visit along #NevadaSilverTrails today! (📸: travelnevada)
A few more from last weekends adventure to Rye Patch Reservoir, it was quite a beautiful sunrise.

So we were headed to Idaho to escape the heat and through a series of snafus decided to blip up to Wild Horse State Recreation Area instead. Idaho will have to wait  for another time ‘cause we’re super smitten with this park. 🤩
