The Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation is a United States reservation in northwestern Nevada - approximately 35 miles northeast of Reno, in Washoe, Storey, and Lyon Counties. It lies almost entirely in Washoe County (99.88%), with but tiny amounts of land in the other two counties (at the southern end, near the city of Fernley). It is governed by the Pyramid Lake Paiute tribe. In 1993, the population of the reservation was 1,603 individuals. At that time there were 2,253 enrolled members of the tribe. The 2000 census reported a population of 1,734. The reservation has 742.2 square miles in land area, and includes all of Pyramid Lake, and all of the Truckee River from the Big Bend north.
