Tonopah is located about halfway between Reno and Las Vegas. Tonopah is a perfect place to stay while enjoying central Nevada's recreational activities including rock hunting, hiking, bird watching, wildlife viewing, mountain biking, off roading and hunting.

Because it's so far from the bright lights of any major city, Tonopah's night skies are considered among the best in the country for stargazing.

Tour our Historic Mining Park & visit the Central Nevada Museum. Shop in unique stores, discover local artists & even mine for turquoise!  Go off-roading or visit nearby ghost towns.
