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.

Either nobody returned from the trip or their fingers are just too injured to even type a trip report.

Ranger Robin told me twice, TWICE! to get my ar$e out of the park or I would be charged for another day!

And here's the map route that Shelby and I took.
The pictures tell a hell of a story - sorry I couldn't make it. Some day we should do a Nevada drive to various strage locations.
