Welcome to Pyramid Lake's go-to stop for anything and everything.

 

Crosby Lodge is located at Pyramid Lake in northwestern Nevada, about 40 miles from Reno. There’s a wide variety of recreational activities to enjoy on the lake. Boaters can take to the warm, salty water for great water skiing, wake boarding or tubing, while fisherman are drawn to the lake for its trophy cutthroat trout. Campers flock to the shores of Pyramid, while day trippers often come for the mere sight of the immense lake in its stark desert surroundings. For insight on the history and culture of the local tribe, visit The Pyramid Lake Museum and Visitors Center located in Nixon, NV approximately 15 miles from Crosby Lodge. The museum is open to the general public and please call them for their current operating hours at 1-775-574-1088.

The lake’s namesake, a pyramid-shaped island on the eastern shore, is also visible from here. Another feature near the eastern shore of the lake is Anaho Island, a National Wildlife Refuge that is home to one of the largest breeding colonies of American White Pelicans. Many other migratory fowl pause here as well. The mountains surrounding Pyramid Lake provide refuge for antelope, deer and bighorn sheep, so keep your eyes open!

Pyramid Lake measures approximately 300 feet deep, 26 miles long and 11 miles wide at it's North end making it capable of sustaining an array of plants and animals. Anglers from across the globe come for the fantastic fishing. The lake is well-stocked with quality fish by the Pyramid Lake Fisheries, which are operated by members of the Pyramid Lake Paiute tribe. The tribe offers tours of both the hatcheries and the lake itself. Necessary permits for all activities can be purchased at the Pyramid Lake Museum, Crosby Lodge, Sutcliffe Ranger Station, the Nixon Store in Nixon (right across from the museum) as well as online.
