South Fork State Recreation Area
South Fork State Recreation Area

Virtually all of Nevada's State Parks, Recreation Areas and Museums charge use fees. They also usually permit pets but they require your pets to be under control and/or on a short (6 foot) leash when in public. Vehicles are permitted only on designated roadways and parking areas. Fires can be made in designated fire rings and BBQ pits but firewood gathering tends to be prohibited (the host usually has firewood for sale). Don't be collecting plants, trees, animals, fossils, rocks, minerals or other natural objects, or prehistoric or historic artifacts. Most parks also observe a quiet time from 10:00 PM to 7:00 AM.

The standard entry fee is $5 per vehicle for Nevada residents, $7 per vehicle for non-residents. Camping fees vary based on the amenities present, but the same $2 discount per campsite applies for Nevada residents. Some state parks charge boat launch fees and that also varies with the amenities present, same $2 discount per vehicle for Nevada residents. Most of the historic state parks offer tours and the fees for those tours also vary. Same for the state park museums.
