Humboldt Sink and Lake
|Location||Churchill / Pershing counties, Nevada, United States|
|Primary inflows||Humboldt River|
|Primary outflows||none (Humboldt Sink)|
|Basin countries||United States|
The lake receives the Humboldt River from the north but has no outlet. Humboldt Sink, an intermittent extension of the lake to the south, crosses into northern Churchill County. Since the lake is fed by a freshwater source but has no outlet, its water varies between brackish and extremely salt-laden depending on its distance from the inlet.
