Humboldt County is located in the rugged, high desert region of north-central Nevada, bordered on the north by Oregon and by neighboring Nevada counties to the west, south and east. Humboldt County gets its name from the Humboldt River, which enters its borders near the southeastern corner, runs to the northwest for a distance of some sixty miles then continues to the Humboldt Sink, or Lake. Between the mountain ranges lie broad valleys and plains, most of them of desert nature, but which are now being rapidly settled and irrigated from small mountain streams. Humboldt County has a variety of valley and mountain lands, suitable for agriculture, grazing, stock raising and mining. The Humboldt River and its tributaries form the principal water supply for the irrigation of lands, though small mountain streams furnish the supply for some quite extensive individual ranches in the various parallel valleys.
Winnemucca boosts five major casinos with exciting 24-hour gaming action, including slots, table games, live keno and sports books. It also offers numerous types of outdoor recreational activities including, hiking, hunting and biking trails, as well as miles of ATV and off-road adventure trails. The Black Rock is a playground of sorts for a variety of recreational pursuits, such as backpacking, car camping, mountain biking, backcountry horseback riding, hang gliding, hot springs bathing, off-highway vehicle use, ballooning, wildlife watching and photography. In 1997, the 20,000-pound British SSC Thrust jet used the desert expanse to set a new world land-speed record of 763 miles per hour.
