Discover Nevada State Parks

Nevada State Parks

Nevada residents and visitors are invited to “Discover Nevada State Parks” on Saturday, June 8. Park visitors will receive free day-use admission and free fishing (no license required) at all of Nevada’s State Parks.

This statewide event encourages Nevadans to discover the many exciting and affordable recreation opportunities right in their own backyards. “Nevada’s state parks offer a great diversity of outdoor opportunities,” said State Parks Administrator Robert Mergell. “For example, visitors can explore the slot canyons of Cathedral Gorge, tour a genuine ghost town at Berlin-Ichthyosaur or spend a relaxing afternoon fishing at Wild Horse.”

Discover Nevada State Parks Day is also an opportunity for visitors to take the passport challenge and add a stamp to their passport booklet, or if they don’t have one yet, to pick one up while visiting any state park. Once visitors have their passports stamped at 15 different parks, they earn a free annual day-use pass to all Nevada State Parks.

For more information on the Nevada State Parks Passport Booklet, or to find a list of state parks, please visit parks.nv.gov.

Douglas County hired Host Compliance to understand the impact of short term rentals on the community.  I attended the County Commissioners meeting on Thursday and the District Attorney’s office was also there to gather information from the Commissioners on how to proceed.  A recent short term rental survey was found to have loop holes offering unlimited voting.  There was no way to restrict votes from anywhere for that matter.  Short term rental issues will not be addressed further until more information is gathered and our new Commissioners sworn in.
