Fish Cave


Fish Cave is a unique and fascinating destination in the Carson Desert watershed of Nevada. Located about 15 miles north of Austin, Fish Cave is a limestone cave that was formed by underground water erosion. The cave is home to several species of fish, including the unique and rare Railroad Valley springfish, which is found nowhere else in the world. The Fish Cave was formed when a dry lake bed filled with water, creating a natural reservoir that allowed fish to thrive in the cave.

Visiting Fish Cave is an excellent opportunity to see a unique geological formation and rare species of fish. The cave is open to the public and can be explored with the guidance of a park ranger. Visitors can hike to the cave's entrance and explore the cool, dark interior, where they may see the springfish swimming in the crystal clear water. The surrounding desert landscape is also a beautiful sight to behold, with stunning views of the nearby mountains and valleys. Whether you're a nature lover or just looking for a unique adventure, Fish Cave is definitely worth a visit. Get driving directions.
