Douglas County – Welcome

Welcome.

"A Community to Match the Scenery"

Centrally located just 15 minutes south of Nevada’s state capital and bordering the truly one-of-a-kind Lake Tahoe with all its summer and winter activities, Douglas County is recognized as the gem of Northern Nevada - a hidden jewel. On Nevada’s western border, framed by the Carson Range of the Sierra Nevada and Pine Nut Mountains, Douglas County unfolds. Here you can still find miles of open space, expansive ranches and farms, many historical sites and displays, along with a wealth of outdoor recreation activities.
