HistoryEdit

The Cave Creek Dam which created Cave Lake was constructed in 1932. The facility was purchased by the Nevada Department of Wildlife in 1971 for $10. Two years later it was transferred to Nevada State Parks. The park saw an increase in size of 2,980 acres (1,210 ha) in 2015 with the completion of a land transfer from the U.S. Forest Service.

Activities and amenitiesEdit

The park is popular for brown and rainbow trout fishing, ice fishing, crawdadding, camping, and picnicking. Hiking is offered on four developed trails, three to five miles in length. For overnight stays, the park offers a yurt and two designated campgrounds, Elk Flat and Lake View, with modern facilities. Winter activities include ice fishing, ice skating, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Winter fireworks and an ice and snow sculpture contest are featured during the annual White Pine Fire and Ice Show which takes place in January.
