Winnemucca Area Info

Over  a century ago, the town of Winnemucca was little more than a stopover  point for weary travelers following the gold trail. With the Humboldt River twisting about, it  offered water and supplies to the thousands who would wend their way  through the treacherous routes of the Great Basin. Today, this  high-desert hub still offers those same amenities. But with 24-hour  gaming, a multitude of recreational opportunities, a rich and  still-enduring history, and agricultural, mining and other industrial  centers, Winnemucca is no longer simply a stopover point. No, truly in  Winnemucca—there’s more than meets the eye. Winnemucca continues to be a  gateway of sorts to the Great Basin, with Idaho and Oregon to the  north, Salt Lake City to the east and Reno and the Bay Area to the  southwest. Located at the crossroads of Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway  95, Winnemucca is the seat of Humboldt County and half of the county’s  18,000 residents live within the city’s limits. 

Winnemucca  has five major casinos with exciting 24-hour gaming action, including  slots, table games, live keno and sportsbooks. Over 1,150 rooms can  accommodate any kind of traveler, and a full menu of restaurants can  appease any appetite, including three that serve up traditional Basque  fare.  Nestled between mountains to the south and sand dunes to the  north, Winnemucca offers a host of great recreational opportunities.  It’s just a short trip to some of the best mountain biking in the West.  The 36-mile long “Bloody Shins Trail,” as the Winnemucca Trail System is  affectionately called, is located on the south side of Interstate 80  along the Sonoma Mountain Range.  

 Good hunting abounds throughout Humboldt County. Deer, chukar, sagehen,  duck, geese, quail, dove, pheasant and antelope are all plentiful.  Numerous fishing grounds are stocked with trout, catfish, crappie and  walleye. 

 Rockhounds appreciate the local mines and mineral  resources, including the Royal Peacock Opal Mines near Denio, and locals  and visitors alike enjoy the sand dunes, trap shooting, boating, water  skiing, archery, hiking, horseback riding, camping, rock climbing,  scenic drives, wildlife viewing and off-road adventure.
