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.

Blake, that's a bummer, but I so get it. The work thing interferes in our fun all the time. Not to mention the 600 miles RT. But, remember, while the destination may not go away, this may be the only chance you have to do it with us!
Blake - Lame. That is all, carry on. ;)
Looks like great weather and not cold at night!
Jason & Tasha: Do I need to make a reservation with the campground?
Oh, it appears that the park is 2000' higher in elevation than Gabbs, so it will be a bit chillier at night than the link above suggests. So, I have packed the Buddy heater accordingly.
We'll keep the lanterns lit for ya! So glad to hear you are coming, it is not the same without you!
Could anyone make sense out of the fire restrictions?
I can't tell if campfires are allow in fire pits.
It looks like we can have fires if you read the exceptions carefully.
