Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park
Located in central Nevada on the western side of the Shoshone mountain range, Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park is named after the turn-of-century mining town, Berlin, which once stood there, along with the Ichthyosaurs that swam the ocean that once covered the land. Today, it is a great place to learn about the old mining town — now a ghost town — and to see and explore one of the largest collections of Ichthyosaur fossils. The area is also home to many animals, including mule deer, cottontail rabbits, and western fence lizards to name but a few. You will also find camping spots and picnic areas, plus many tours are also available, making this place a destination the entire family can enjoy.
