Summary


Once an ancient lake, this massive silt playa consists of over 400 square miles of ultra-flat terrain. There are numerous access points and many opportunities for primitive camping. The nearby town of Gerlach has basic supplies only. Summer temperatures can soar to well above 100F then drop considerably at night. Also note that during the winter months and wet weather conditions, the playa gets very muddy and sticky.
