Denio is a census-designated place (CDP) that lies on the Nevada-Oregon state
line in Humboldt County, Nevada, in the United States. There was formerly a Denio
post office north of the state line in Harney County, Oregon. The population of the
CDP, which is entirely in Nevada, was 47 at the 2010 census; additional development
considered to be Denio extends into Oregon. The CDP includes a post office, a
community center, a library, and the Diamond Inn Bar, the center of the town's
social life. Recreational activities available in the Denio area include fishing,
opal mining, rockhounding, hunting, and visiting the hot springs. The Humboldt
County School District operates the Denio School, a kindergarten-eighth grade (K-8)
school, on the Nevada side of the state line.

Denio Junction is about two miles south of Denio, at the junction of State Route
140 and State Route 292. Denio Junction's motel provides gasoline (although not
reliably), food, groceries, and lodging. Air transportation is available via the
Denio Junction Airport, a two-runway graded airstrip. There is no scheduled air
or ground transportation serving this field, which is a short walk from any part
of Denio Junction.

Denio was named for Aaron Denio, who settled in the area in 1885. Aaron Denio was
born in 1824 in Illinois and traveled to California in 1860. He worked in milling,
mining, and farming in Nevada and California for 25 years before settling near the
Oregon-Nevada border. He died at Denio in 1907. Denio post office was established
in Oregon in 1888. After World War II a number of businesses relocated south of the
state line to take advantage of Nevada's more liberal liquor and gambling laws.
The post office moved and reopened in Nevada in 1950.
