Lahontan State Recreation Area is a public recreation area surrounding Lake Lahontan, a 17-mile-long impoundment of the Carson River, located approximately 18 miles west of Fallon, Nevada. The reservoir features 69 miles of shoreline and 11,200 acres of water when full. Much of the park lies below 4,000 feet in elevation and is dominated by high desert sagebrush. Wooded areas of native cottonwoods and willow trees can be found along the shore of the lake. Primary access points to the park are along U.S. Route 50 near the Lahontan Dam and off U.S. Route 95 in the town of Silver Springs. A corridor known as Carson River Ranches connects Lahontan with Fort Churchill State Historic Park.
