Pyramid Lake - June 11th & 12th

As we talked about at Pizza Night, we are doing this run instead of Strawberry and Deer Valley due to too much snow...

We will be spending the day Saturday the 11th on the East side of Pyramid Lake, exploring the area around Winnemucca Lake bed and hopefully find some good wheeling - there was last time I was there but that was 9 years ago. Cutthroat knows the area much better than I.

Fishing will be available for those who want to fish (we'll get permits before hand) and we'll be camping overnight for those that want to.

Sunday the 12th we'll do whatever. If we haven't had our fill of rockcrawling, we may hit Steve's Loop or MoonRocks on the way home.

Everyone is responsible for their own food, camping stuff or whatever (don't bring anything illegal)

Those who are serious about going, post a reply and I will PM you the meeting time and place.

What ? Nudity $20 ? Smoking $10 Jeez I thought Indians were a free wheeling bunch. I have had minimal trouble at Pyramid in the 15 years I have been going there. We just need to obtain some permits on the way to the lake. Don't be skeered of Indians.

out of all the years i have gone out there, the only trouble i have seen was on 4th of july with people shootin off fireworks at shore. Just be respectful of the area and no trouble will come.

Man if you even drive off on the wrong road you could be looking at like 10 fines. Not to mention if we camp. I think someone needs to call and let them know we are coming, maybe reserver some campsites so we can get stickers or something.

these two are very true.

i was late waking up and the tribal police searched my vehicle and found my 22 rifle. i paid both those fines, had to go to nixon to go to court to get my rifle back. if you have a camping permit you must be out by a certain time. also according to the tribal police your rights are not the same. they are dictated by the tribe.

do not bring guns on pyramid res even if you hold a CCW. a pistol will net you some fines if the cop is not in a good mood that day.

How late do you guys plan on being out there? I have to work on weekends, but I get off early on Sunday (4:00) and I was going to go camping out that way Sunday night and Monday. If you hit up the moonrocks later in the afternoon around 5 or so I could probably make that on my way out to pyramid. (Don't plan around me though.v :disagree: )

4 and 5pm is pretty late. I have no way of telling where we'll be at that time. We might even be on the way home. You are welcome to catch up with us if you like.

Since I'm assuming this is not any specific "trail" that we are just going to be doing random roads that look cool??

And are we going to camp as planned? I know we have to get permits, I thought that was more on the west side of the lake. Just trying to get down what needs to be done, fee's for camping, sleeping/food stuff.

We are going to camp but those who don't want to could go home instead. We will stop on the way up to obtain any necessary permits. We'll split the cost if its a group rate, or if they charge by the vehicle, you will pay your way.

Each person will be responsible for his / her own food and camping stuff.

Thats cool, $5 isn't bad, I think i'll just chill in the back of my jeep for the evening, I assume someone will have a fire going to chill around so it should be fun. I would bring a sleeping bag/mat but I'm a little too soft for desert creatures.

I would say we should barbeque but I don't know whos coming out, so I don't want anyone to feel left out.

The list of fees there is a little old. Day use is up to $6, and camping is up as well. I'm not exactly sure what camping is now, but it's more than $5...
