Ride Camp

Directions: Ride camp is 0.6 miles off Kings Canyon Road (a dirt road) near Spooner Lake at the summit of Hwy 50 in Nevada.  There are a couple short, steep hills with loose sandy soil on the dirt road and 4WD may be helpful but shouldn’t be required.  The turnoff to camp will be well flagged with ribbons.

From Reno take Highway 395 South around Carson City.  395 will end at Fairview Road, turn right and follow the signs to Hwy 50 West/South Lake Tahoe.  From Hwy 50, continue approximately 9 miles.  You will pass a highway department equipment shed and sand/gravel parking area.  The turn-off to camp is the next immediate right.

From Hwy 50 West (Sacramento/South Lake Tahoe):  Take Hwy 50 East toward Carson City.  You will go past the turn off for Hwy 28 and continue on Hwy 50 for another 0.9 miles.  The turn off to camp will be a left onto the dirt road immediately after the Spooner Summit sign and small paved parking lot.

Ride Camp: Camp will be open on Friday, August 24th.  Parking is EXTREMELY limited and the reason we have had to restrict entries for this ride.  Ride share if at all possible (get a $10 discount per person!!) and plan on being very “neighborly” to your neighbors.  Please work with our parking volunteer to park as close as is safe.  Camp is in a dirt lot used with special permission from Nevada State Parks.  Please come prepared to clean up your hay, manure, and any other trash.   

Horse water and portable toilets will be available in camp.  You should have cell phone reception at camp and on most of the trails.  Loose dogs or excessive barking in camp may result in rider disqualification.  Please ensure your dogs are on a leash or kept within your rig, and can be quiet when left alone.
