Hero: Knott Creek Reservoir
small-sr Icon

Hidden in the pristinely beautiful Pine Forest Mountains, Knott Creek Reservoir is rightly considered one of the prettiest lakes in Nevada. The Nevada Department of Wildlife manages and stocks the reservoir with cut bow and tiger trout, making it popular with anglers. Camping around the lake is primitive. Due to muddy conditions, road access can be difficult early and late in the season. 4WD is recommended.
