What are some unique places to stay in Nevada?
If you have plans to spend time in Elko County near the Wild Horse Reservoir your options are pretty limited because the area is dotted with charming but small towns and you’ll be sounded by BLM land. We do have a nice Cozy Cabin Retreat in mind that sleeps two about 36 miles from Carlin, NV. Sitting on a ranch, surrounded by the still quiet of the beautiful wide-open Nevada landscape this cabin has updated amenities with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, heat and air-conditioning, WiFi, and TV. But really all you need is to fire up the wood stove, sit back and relax after a day enjoying the outdoors. You can explore a nearby hot-spring-fed pond with catfish and goldfish, or check out the old wood buildings on the property that certainly have some stories to tell.
What kind of fish are in Wildhorse Reservoir?
In the Wild Horse State Recreation Area lies the man-made Wildhorse Reservoir. This area attracts hunters, hikers, and of course fishing enthusiasts. When you toss in your line expect a feeding frenzy of beautiful rainbow trout and German brown trout. You’ll also pull in some small-mouth bass, catfish, and yellow perch. Ice fishing is also extremely popular in the winter as the lake freezes over. The falling snow and freezing water bring equal opportunity for skating, skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Even winter camping is an option if you pack your cold-weather gear, or pick one of the new year-round cabin rentals for a more cozy stay.

Elko, Nevada is home to a number of wild horse herds, some estimate there are nearly 3,900 wild horses in the area. These horses are not native but were brought to the region by early settlers. These settlers likely saw the open range as an opportunity to start a new life with their families, and they brought their horses with them to help them on the journey. Today, the wild horses of Elko remain a symbol of the Old West. These herds are managed by the Bureau of Land Management, and they are protected under the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971.
