Located in Eastern Nevada, the Echo Canyon State Park offers nature filled enjoyment all year long for both local families as well as out of state visitors. Boating is a popular and prevalent activity here, with the 65-acre Echo Canyon Reservoir providing a great place to jet across the water in whatever craft you decide to bring.
The boat launch ramp can be found on the north side of the reservoir, although if the water drops below a certain level during the summer months, boats can only be launched from the shore. If you're looking to bring your canine on your fishing trip, they can accompany you as long as owners keep them on a 6-foot leash or shorter at all times. Park officials, please ask that you clean up any waste your dog might leave behind.
Hiking is excellent here, with the Ash Canyon trail providing a grand entrance into Echo Canyon State Park's backcountry. This 2.5-mile trail starts in the upper campgrounds and takes a steep grade upward to the top of the valley's rim. If you decide to continue forward past the edge, you'll enjoy a magnificent view of the steep sides of Ash Canyon.
Follow this trail to its conclusion, and you will find yourself back where you started. Canines can accompany their owners on these trails as long as they stay on a leash at all times. Doggie stations exist at the trailhead, in case your pet leaves any messes behind. If you would like to stay overnight, Echo Canyon State Park offers 33 campsites open for reservations throughout the year.
These sites are all located next to full washroom facilities, as well as water stations for potable drinking water. In addition to these traditional sites, there are also 20 full-hookup RV sites that can be reserved up to six months in advance. These RV stations have a maximum limit of 14 day stays in any 30 day period. Canines can accompany their guests on these Rv sites but aren't permitted in around the traditional camping sites.
