BLM LANDS IN NEVADABLM
(Bureau of Land Management) or public domain lands in Nevada are incredibly extensive, adding up to nearly 50,000,000 acresfar more than any other state except Alaska.
There are many separate tracts, and printed literature is available for only a handful. Access is sometimes difficult, and public facilities are rare. Areas of special interest in Nevada include Red Rock Canyon, High Rock Canyon, and the Blue Lakes.
Activities: Backpacking and hiking are possible throughout BLM lands, as is horseback riding, but there are very few established trails. Fishing is also available, and hunting is permitted in season.
Camping Regulations: Camping is allowed in most areas, except where otherwise prohibited. No permits are required. Campsites should be at least 200 feet from water sources and trails. Campfires are allowed, but stoves are recommended.
