Berlin, a turn-of-the-century mining town, is preserved in a state of arrested decay. A trail through the town site tells the story of Berlin and its mine. Ichthyosaurs (pronounced “ick-thee-o-sores”) were ancient marine reptiles that swam in a warm ocean covering central Nevada 225 million years ago. Remains of these giant marine vertebrates are on display at the park’s Fossil House, and these official state fossils are a primary attraction for visitors from throughout the world. The park is east of Gabbs via State route 844.
Please RSVP as Robin, local park ranger, is expecting a head count for reservations...hee-hee. There is a camping fee which is under $20 a night. WARNING: this is a very rural camp area...very difficult to locate an afternoon beverage if not supplied in your cooler.
