SPRING CREEK, Nev. — South Fork State Recreation Area’s water system was shut down for repairs on September 2, 2008.
A 62,000 gallon water storage tank is undergoing repairs. The closure means the park’s developed campground will also be closed until spring 2009.
Camping is still available on the southwest shore area. We regret any inconvenience this may cause to visitors.
Please contact South Fork State Recreation Area at 775-744-4346 for further information.

Located 16 miles south of Elko on State Route 228, the park is open year-round, but access may be hampered by snow during the winter months.
