Kershaw–Ryan State Park is a state park of Nevada, USA, situated in a canyon that was homesteaded in 1873. Located just south of the town of Caliente, it is in the Eastern Nevada Region of Nevada State Parks.
The canyon was settled in 1873 by Samuel and Hannah Kershaw, who operated a ranch called the Meadow Valley Wash Ranch. In 1904, they sold the property to rancher James Ryan, who donated the land to the state in 1926 to be a public park. The Civilian Conservation Corps developed visitor amenities in 1934, and Kershaw–Ryan State Park was officially established the following year.
The park offers camping, picnicking, and a group-use area. Hikers can explore the 1.5-mile (2.4 km) Overlook Trail.
