Location of Wild Horse State Recreation Area in Nevada

Wild Horse State Recreation Area is a 120-acre (49 ha) state park unit of Nevada, USA, on the northeast shore of 2,830-acre (1,150 ha) Wild Horse Reservoir. Located 70 miles (110 km) north of the town of Elko, it is in the Northern Nevada Region of Nevada State Parks. The state park is a popular destination for fishing, and especially ice fishing, on the reservoir, which was created in 1937 and enlarged with the creation of a new dam in 1969.

In addition to year-round fishing, the park offers opportunities for camping, picnicking, hunting, boating, ice-skating, sledding, snowmobiling and skiing.
