The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe has designated the beaches from Popcorn to Warrior Point as open to the public for recreational activities, including fishing, boating, camping and day use. The beaches on the south and east sides of Pyramid Lake remain closed to the public, including Dago and Howard’s Beach. The beaches north of Warrior Point are also closed due to road closures.

Fishing, boating, camping and day use permits are available at the Tribe’s Ranger Station and Marina in Sutcliffe, I-80 Smokeshop in Wadsworth and the Nixon Store.

The funds are used to support the Tribe’s costs for public safety and lake maintenance.


Chairman Vinton Hawley reminds the public that they are visitors and guests of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, and that all tribal regulations will be strictly enforced. He encourages visitors to be sage and to protect the beauty of Pyramid Lake by packing out all trash, treating each other with respect, and to enjoy the privilege of visiting the Tribe’s historic lake.
