Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge

Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge, is located approximately 90 miles north of Las Vegas in Lincoln County, Nevada, just off of US Route 93. Pahranagat, a Native American word meaning "land of many waters", was established in 1963 to provide habitat for migratory birds, especially waterfowl, its lakes and marshes being a rare sight in this part of Nevada. Pahranagat's water originates from large springs to the north of the refuge and its waters support various types of wetland habitats favored by over 230 species of migratory birds and other resident wildlife. The refuge has four main water impoundments: North Marsh, Upper and Lower Pahranagat Lakes, and the Middle Marsh. The Pahranagat Refuge is dominated by Upper and Lower Pahranagat Lakes, offering good fishing and non-motorized boating opportunity during most months except for the heart of summer when the waters of the lakes may be low or even dry. Birdwatching is a popular activity, with a bird list available at the refuge offices. Visitors should check with the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge offices for more detailed information on rules & regulations governing activities on the lakes & surrounding lands of the refuge.

Kershaw-Ryan State Park

Kershaw-Ryan State Park is situated in colorful Rainbow canyon. Located three miles south of Caliente, just off US Route 93, Kershaw-Ryan State Park is only 25 miles west of the Utah border in Lincoln County. Covering 240 acres, Kershaw-Ryan State Park's steep canyon walls tower over a long, narrow valley, with elevations ranging from 4300-5000 feet above sea level. Early settlers here cultivated a garden of grape vines, trees, and grassy lawn surrounding a spring-fed pond, providing a sharp contrast to the rugged landscape. The deep canyons of Rainbow Canyon and Kershaw Canyon were created by water eroding across the terrain, carving deep channels into the bedrock. As recently as 10,000 years ago, vast lakes engulfed the Meadow Valley Wash south of Rainbow Canyon. As the lakes drained and the land uplifted, the flowing water created deep canyons. Flash floods are common in Kershaw Canyon. Visitors to Kershaw-Ryan State Park will find good hiking trails that bring them to the heart of scenic Rainbow Canyon which range from 1/2 to 1 mile in length. Visitors should check with the local state park ranger for more detailed information on hikes and park amenities, rules & regulations.

The park is located approximately 34 miles east of Caliente and adjacent to the Utah border, reached 28 miles of graded gravel roads off US Route 93. Visitors to Beaver Dam State Park will find good fishing opportunity on spring fed Schroeder Reservoir and surrounding streams which are stocked annually with Rainbow trout, with Desert Suckers and Golden Shiner fish are also locally abundant. For visitors looking to hike, there is a small, developed trail system at Beaver Dam, including an interpretive nature trail.
