  • This was part of a one-week road trip to remote Nevada to see the full moon and explore off the beaten paths. Truly one of the nicest state parks to camp at. Spent 2 nights here. Very quiet, few visit...  more »
  • Glad that we visited this state park, but were disappointed that there was actually very little to see (and read) about Icthy. Since there was no tour going on when we arrived and the door to the exhi...  more »
  • Getting there is a long, lonely and dusty drive but that makes it all the more interesting. We found the Berlin ruins to be on par with other "ghost towns" we have visited but there are only a few bui...  more »

  • Great for day hikes or camping, picnic tables, trash cans, and small from areas provided. Beautiful desert scenery and lots of wildlife. Bring your own supplies because you're really in the middle of nowhere.
  • This park has a huge ichthyosaur fossil housed in a small building. The ranger talk that's given is quite interesting. They have a small gift store too. The mining ghost town is evocative and you can really feel the isolation being surrounded by pretty much nothing. The campground is nice, with protected sites , picnic tables and such. Small scorpions too, so watch out!
  • This is a very cool park! The ghost town of Berlin is near the front. Lots of old mining town buildings in decent shape. There is also an abandoned mine that you can tour on the weekend. Up farther into the park is a nice, quiet camping area. It's pretty rustic (i.e. pit toilets) but it's very beautiful, and you'll have the place almost to yourself! At the back is the Ichthyosaur museum, which only opens when there is a ranger to give a tour at 10am and 2pm. The tour is $3 per adult, and is totally worth it! Super informational, and they will answer any questions you may have. There are also fossils of other creatures in the museum. Lots to see!
  • We went off season many times (live in Fallon). The ranger unlocked the exhibit for my family and showed us the exhibit. Nice private tour!!
  • Unique and peaceful.
