  • First, let me say I am a history buff, so my view is a little clouded. We were enroute from Great Basin NP on Hwy. 50, to South Lake Tahoe and we needed a place to stop for the night with our camper s...  read more »
  • We were unaware of Fort Churchill and saw the sign as we drove by. We decided to stop and eat lunch in the park's picnic grounds. A little dusty, and a little buggy", but OK. The small museum, which c...  read more »
  • Great place for camping and hiking. The spaces are a nice distance from each other. There are lots coyotes at night, but they stayed out of the campground. Museum was nice but small and cemetery was d...  read more »
  • This place is pretty amazing. Like most other parts of Nevada, you can see for miles in all directions. It is quiet, beautiful, serene, and undisturbed by people, for the most part. You may see some wildlife walking around (i saw a scorpion) and bring water to drink, it gets pretty hot out here, and it is dry, too. Would recommend.
  • If you' re a history buff, this place has ghosts you should was a Pony stop as well as a Military Post, and its well worth the visit...There is camping along the Carson River.
  • Great Historical Fort. Also Pony Express Station. Beautiful campgrounds, but do watch for low limbs and swing ratio on Long and Tall trailers. Quiet and great trails. Can spend a few days enjoying the surrounding area. Visit Buckland Station just over the Railroad tracks heading S. On Alt 95. If following Pony Express Stations Hooten Well is out past Buckland Station, heading South about a mile to the left.. Turn at sign saying Campgrounds. Follow this 4x4 road, stay due East, as road splits to the left and follows Carson River too, about 13 miles in. You will see corrals clearly. There it is! Rock Ruins are fenced off to help preserve site. Private property on East side of fence. I choose to go back towards Buckland and not follow this road all the way through as it goes through the Top Gun training facility.
  • The fort was very nice. It smelled great too. You may enjoy going there if you like historical monuments that are unpreserved. The ruins are a brilliant attraction.
  • VERY interesting. Got there late but the ranger stayed and gave me a brief overview of the area and history.
