A watery gem amid the arid land, Walker lake is a treasure worth discovering. One of North America's great desert lakes, it is home to a threatened species of trout, migrating waterfowl and the solitude of Nevada's Great Basin.

Walker Lake is a haven for boating, fishing, camping, hiking and birdwatching. Water skiing and personal watercraft are welcome along with quiet vessels such as canoes and kayaks - perfect for exploring the Walker River Delta or observing loons, grebes and other waterbirds. Major beaches and campgrounds include Sportsman's Beach, Twenty Mile Beach, Tamarack and Walker Lake Recreation Area (Nevada State Parks beach).
