Mineral County is large, and there is lots of room for you to settle in and become part of our community. We’re located within 12 hours of all Pacific Coast Markets via highway, air and rail, and are only three and a half hours away from Reno & Tahoe Airports, Mammoth Recreational Area and Yosemite National Park.

The Walker River Band of Paiutes is in the northern portion of the county and the Hawthorne Weapon and Ammunition Depot covers 230 square miles around the town of Hawthorne. We have great recreation at Walker Lake, a desert terminal lake that offers fishing, boating, swimming, jet skis, water skiing and bird watching.
