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.

Campsites can accommodate tent camping or an RV, and are large enough for a truck and trailer.

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.
