Mealtime at Lahontan

Lahontan is a great place for an early Spring rally along the water's edge, either on the beach or the adjacent developed campsites (will there be water?).

The Nevada State Park’s website: describes Lahontan, “Named after an ancient lake, Lahontan Reservoir was originally built as part of an irrigation project to water nearby farmlands. With willows and cottonwoods scattered along 69 miles of shoreline, the park is one of most popular places in Nevada to boat, fish, water-ski, horseback ride, camp and enjoy the outdoors year-round. Canoeing from Fort Churchill to the lake makes for a great day trip when conditions allow. Wild horses, bobcat, fox and deer share the park with a variety of birds, including migratory waterfowl, pelicans, herons, egrets and  hawks. Lahontan is also a nesting site for bald eagles.”

Expect daytime temps to range in the upper 30s to upper 40s so we'll likely want a warming campfire for camp chair visits and our shared pot luck meals. Night time temps might vary from low to upper 30s so make sure your propane is topped off, batteries fully charged and maybe have a generator ready in case you need to recharge during the daytime; alternately have a good 12 or 10 gage extension cord (not the cheapie 14 and 16 guage ones from the discount stores) to borrow power from a neighbor.

Lahontan is only 50+ miles from Reno so join us even if only for the day. Remember there are day use and camping fees at Lahontan ($5 & $15 per day) and we’ll glady accept your rally Kitty donation ($5 per night). Nevada residents can use their yearly Annual Entrance Permit or All Access Permit to eliminate some or all of the fees.
