Outdoors & Watersports
Fernley sits in the middle of BLM land encompassing over 85% of the land in Nevada. Feel free to head out into the “wilds” and pick your spot or pick one of the many improved campgrounds located at all of the above lakes and river areas. Hike through the deserts or change the scenery by heading to the mountains and the Ponderosa pines. Get on your horse and you are still only minutes away from the same sights that the pioneers saw when they first crossed this area on their way to the California gold fields. Don’t forget Lake Tahoe – The Gem of the Sierras with fishing, boating, sightseeing, and hiking. Northern Nevada, with over 15 Ski Resorts in the Tahoe Basin alone, sports some of the finest skiing in the country. Try your hand at some powder or maybe see the scenery with a little cross-country skiing. Snow mobiling, snow boarding, snow shoeing – it’s all close to Fernley.
