Nevada Parks, Campgrounds, and Trails
We all love taking the horses out locally, but the best part of owning a horse is the opportunities for adventure. Luckily, the United States is full of horse-friendly outdoor recreation areas perfect for the occasional day trip or longer vacation. We are producing a series to bring you information about the horse-friendly parks, campgrounds, and trails across the United States.
Soldier Meadows Guest Ranch Soldier Meadows Rd, Gerlach, NV 89412 (530) 233-4881 Fax (530) 233-1183 Dating back to 1865 when it was known as Camp McGarry, this historic cattle ranch lies in the Black Rock Desert about three hours north of Reno, Nevada and 60 miles beyond Bruno’s Country Club in Gerlach, Nevada. Soldier Meadows is a family owned working cattle ranch with over 500,000 acres of public and private land to enjoy. The ranch headquarters includes the main lodge, refurbished stone house (the original cavalry officer’s quarters, now our ranch foreman’s home), rock stables, and willow corrals. The park-like lawns and natural hot springs are truly an oasis in the Black Rock Desert. Horseback riders can work with the cowboys, take trail rides to track wild mustangs and other wildlife, or ride out to the natural hot springs for a soak.
