Fallon National Wildlife Refuge is located in the Lahontan Valley, near the community of Fallon, approximately seventy miles east of Reno. Fallon Refuge is dominated by gently rolling to flat desert shrublands consisting of greasewood and saltbush. A system of both active and stable dunes also accentuates the topography in this area. The lowest elevation found in the Stillwater Refuge Complex is found on this refuge, at a low of about 3,800 feet in the Carson Sink. At the terminus of a branch of the Carson River, there is currently limited hunting available on Fallon NWR, including waterfowl and upland game. Access is limited to open roads, and four-wheel drives are recommended.
