What is there to do?

If you want to really explore the beauty of Eastern Nevada, look no further than Echo Canyon State Park!

This popular Nevada state park offers year round fun, centered around a 65-acre reservoir that offers a host of family fun activities for all ages!

The park is popular for camping, fishing, hiking and enjoying the beautiful scenery of the area. You might want to just sit on the banks and try your luck catching some fish, as the lake is filled with rainbow trout, largemouth bass, crappie and the occasional German brown trout.

Those active kids might want to slide on those hiking boots and hitting the nature trails, you can just enjoy it at your own pace.

Kids, keep those eyes peeled as you might just spot some of the abundant wildlife that will be all around you, including coyotes, deer and the occasional bobcat!  Don't forget to look up because you might just spot songbirds, hawks, owls, vultures, and even eagles.
