Welcome to Dayton State Park 
At the foot of the Virginia Range, on the banks of the Carson River, Dayton State Park is rich in picturesque beauty as well as gold and silver mining history. The park features the remains of the Rock Point Mill built in 1861, a remnant of Dayton’s mining glory days. Old stone walls from the mill, one of the first to process ore from the Comstock Lode, still stand among cottonwood, sagebrush and willows. Originally a Paiute fishing camp, the park provides a scenic site to camp, picnic, hike or hold group outings. Visitors may catch a glimpse of one or more of the hawks, foxes or porcupines that call this beautiful park home.
