Delta Camp is located within the Lahontan State Recreation Area in Silver Springs (Lyon County) and is managed by Nevada State Parks. From the equestrian campground, enjoy miles of sandy trails that weave through cottonwoods, willows, and sand dunes that follow the Carson River to Lahontan Reservoir.
Wild horses, bobcats, fox, and deer share the park – but this area is renowned for its birds. Keep an eye open for pelicans, herons, egrets, hawks, and a variety of other species. Lahontan is also a nesting site for bald eagles which can be seen perched high in the trees that dot the reservoir’s shoreline.
Amenities: Six horse stalls, pit toilet, numerous campsites with fire rings and grills. A large parking area with long, wide lanes – perfect for pulling a large rig through. There is no potable water on-site, but easy access to the Carson River will provide unlimited water for your horse. No reservations required.
Weed Free Hay Required: No
Dogs Allowed: Yes
Cost: Day use entrance fee – $5.00 per vehicle. Camping – $15.00 per night.
