       In a dense forest of Jeffrey Pines, 20 miles south of Reno just off the U.S. 395 is Davis Creek Park, where portions of the 'Bonanza' TV-movie 'Bonanza: Under Attack' was filmed at in 1995.  The campground and picnic area offers outstanding views of Washoe Lake and Slide Mountain as well as many recreational facilites.  Individual sites surround a small scenic pond upon which no motorized boats are allowed.  During the coldest months of the year, the pond freezes and makes a great ice skating area which is free to the public.

       Nature trails are marked for a self-guided hike among the flora and fauna.  Group hikes may be arranged to explore the surrounding Davis Creek environs by calling the Ranger.
