Topaz Lake, In Topaz Nevada, Jewel of the Eastern Sierra.  Driving Topaz Lake Nevada  Lisa Wetzel and Jim Valentinesouth from Gardnerville, Nevada ... Just 40 minutes from Carson City, Nevada, the first glimpse of Topaz Lake is breathtaking no matter how many times you’ve done it before.  With the snow capped Sweetwater Mountains in the background, and framed by the Red Hills and Wild Oat Mountain, the oasis of Topaz Lake stands out beautifully.

Fed by the West Walker River, this man made beauty is bisected by the Nevada/California State Line and was built as a reservoir to control water flow for the farmers irrigating downstream in Smith Valley, Nevada and farther on into Yerington, Nevada and Mason Valley. Its natural setting and look, however, make it look like it was naturally created.

Topaz has great fishing (up to 10 pound trout!), boating and jet skiing.  The water is much warmer than Lake Tahoe making for pleasant recreation fun.  There is a public campground maintained by the Douglas County Parks Department at the north end of the lake, a couple of boat Topaz Lake Nevada  Lisa Wetzel and Jim Valentinelaunch ramps, and areas where you can camp and launch on public land. In addition there are a couple of restaurants, our favorite ... The Topaz Lodge ... and casinos just off the highway that afford spectacular views while you dine, table games, food and beverage, and great water recreation – Rural Nevada at its finest.When it comes to choosing professionals to assist you with your real estate needs ...

Lisa ~ Terrific article about Topaz Lake! My father - in -law loves to fish and camp there! It is so close to Reno I am surprised more locals don't venture up there.

Lisa ... Topaz Lake is a wonderful addition to the South Douglas County area.  Folks travel from all over to fish in the lake and to water ski.  The county park is a great place to camp or for day use!  Local and travelers all find the food at the Topaz Lodge a tasty and affordable fare.

Wow...your description of Topaz Lake is so inviting that I will plan for a stop the next time I drive by the area. Usually we just zoomed through without giving it much thoughts.
