The campground used to be the set of Paramount Pictures’ TV series, “The Virginian.” With an essence of the old west life, the campsite is designed like a vintage ghost town including a saloon, ice cream parlor and a goods store. The land of Ghost Mountain Ranch is home to hiking, hunting, fishing, boating, swimming and even white water rafting on the Lake Tahoe River. One of the most unique activities that Ghost Mountain Ranch has to offer is rockhounding in the Sierra Mountains. While rockhounding, you can find geodes, quartz, fossils and even possibly a little bit of gold! On the resort side of the campground, there is a crystal clear pool with a snack bar that changes with the seasons.

The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range was chosen for “The Virginian” because of its pure symbol to the old American West. At Ghost Mountain Ranch, you can experience this majestic range with horseback riding. Bring your own horse or rent one for the day to explore over 350 acres of horse trails. We can’t forget about the rodeo arena which is open to its visitors to practice tricks or just to regularly ride.
