Delamar Dry Lake

Delamar Dry Lake Overview

Delamar Dry Lake, also as Texas Dry Lake (due to the shape of the area from an aerial view), is a dry lake bed located in the Dry Lake Watershed near Alamo in Lincoln County, Nevada in the Paharangat Valley area.

The dry lake is an interesting stop on your exploration list to explore, bike, or even try your hand at land sailing.

During the year when the weather isn’t too hot or cold, it’s a great place to camp and enjoy the unpolluted skies for stargazing.

Managed By
