Ghost Mountain Ranch History

california ghost townIn the Sierra Mountains, nestled among the tall pines, at the gateway to South Lake Tahoe, awaits beautiful Ghost Mountain Ranch Resort. Originally designed by Paramount Pictures, this resort was once the set of the popular TV series “The Virginian”and perfectly captures the pure essence of old west life.

A vintage ghost town complete with a saloon (with a cafe inside) and an ice cream parlor are only the beginnings of its delightful charm. The spacious campsites and rental cabins are surrounded by miles of hiking trails and streams to explore on this amazing 325 acre preserve. Don’t forget to pack your poles, tackle and bait because it’s time for you to reel in the big one, at our very own stocked Fishing Pond. Located in the resort we have a large, crystal clear swimming pool with a seasonal snack bar that is guaranteed to be a big splash! The areas surrounding our 350 acre campground has dozens of trails and literally hundreds of square miles to explore by horseback! We are also located in the Heart of Apple Hill territory, which is over 50 family owned farms including Christmas tree farms, wineries, apple orchards and more! Hiking in the Sierras is a trail hikers dream come true! El Dorado National Forest has hundreds of miles of beautiful hiking trails all located nearby. 

Fill your days with activities at the pool, fishing at the pond or hiking in the woods. Then spend your evening visiting South Lake Tahoe, which is located a short drive from the resort you can enjoy skiing, boating, bike trails, blackjack ice skating or bar hopping in South Lake Tahoe

What our Campers are saying…

We went to the park for two weeks over the 4th of July holiday. The park was recently purchased by Colorado River Experience. I’m giving the park 4 stars because I was definitely impressed and will be going back soon. They will earn their 5 stars when the complete their future projects they intend to do to make the park even nicer.
