Surprise Recreation Management Area


From beautiful Surprise Valley at the base of the towering Warner Mountains, east into the high dessert valleys and mountains of northwestern Nevada, the Surprise Area Office administers almost 1.5 million acres of Public Land.


Most visitors from California take Highway 299, east from U.S. Highway 395, to the ranching community of Cedarville in the Surprise Valley. Another paved highway, Nevada 447, provides access from the Reno area.
