Walker Lake, Nevada Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Walker Lake, located within the Walker Lake State Recreation Area, is one of the last remnants of Lake Lahontan which covered much of western Nevada nearly 10,000 years ago. Walker Lake now covers 36,000 acres and is defined dramatically on one side by 11,245 foot tall Mt. Grant.

Visitors to Walker Lake will find it offers excellent recreational opportunity including boating, hiking, waterskiing, wakeboarding and good wildlife viewing. Walker Lake is also known as a popular hangliding & paragliding site. Anglers will find excellent fishing at Walker Lake, with over 360,000 native Cutthroat trout available to be caught. Walker Lake State Recreation Area stands at the southern edge of the 300,000 acre Walker River Piute Indian Reservation and is located 11 miles north of the town of Hawthorne on US Route 95.

Hawthorne (pop 3000) is a tourist-friendly town, and the gateway to the Walker Lake area and the mountains to its south, including Boundary Peak, at 13,140 feet the highest in Nevada. Hawthorne is located just off US Route 95 and has several lodging and dining options for visitors to choose from.
