Beautiful river front property on Owyhee river in Mountain City, NV. Relax by the river, hike, go rock hounding or head across and right next to the property "The bridge to Nowhere" and stroll where no one is. Privacy galore! Go trout and or salmon fishing right at your front door! It's beautiful. This has been a hidden gem. The building on the property is an ole historic jail that's been sitting since early 1930's on the Owyhee River.  You have access to  1.67 acres but all you need really is the river and stars.  We've opened up the property, (removed the bard wire in front and cut back some willows in front of the jail house so you can get to the river and enjoy the fishing there. It's got some of the best fly fishing right there as the bridge "To no where" is in view site and mentions online that is one of the best spots for trout and salmon fishing! Yet you got it all to yourself right next door. 

This is also territory known as Duck Valley Indian Reservation so be prepared to see some of the most beautiful ducks that meander in the river. Keep your camera ready. They are just beautiful here with greens, blues and purple feathers. 

It's easy to just get lost in the sounds of mother nature here just listening to the river go by and the various birds and animals speaking. 

You can meander quite a ways along the river until you see a  stream that runs through the property and walk cross the wooden bridge. That's all on Willow Retreats property so all okay too explore.  The property ends just on the other side the wooden bridge. Here the property butts up behind the only open place in town aka as Mountain City Bar. They just demolished the standing building there and still standing a few small buildings. However,  with only 10 residence in town this ole mining still remains a quite place yet a great spot for a drink if you want change of pace. You would never know it's open though but it is at 5:30PM and now the resturant for food if you want get a bite to eat too. There is even a pool table inside and nice place to go or skip it all together and pull out the propane grill if you want. We do have a table set up next to the jail house for anyone to use and right next to the hose so help yourself. 

The site remains secluded wand hidden away with all the willows standing tall. The site is right off of 225 which is VERY quite. If you need anything like food, gas or supplies the closes place to go is  at the Owyhee Ace and or Grocery Store that is 13.8 miles away. 

There is no cell service in the area in Mountain city but you will have access to Wifi  at the site/  You may need to set-up the RV closer to the Jail house to keep the Wifi at it's best signal if that's important to you.  There are many spots to pick on the site and you can go between the wooden post on property and park anywhere you see or pitch a tent or 3. The website says, 1 site for 1 tent, however, there is room for few.  Lotta flat ground and grassy areas for you to choose and stay up close by the jail site works too. Wifi will likely be best by the Jail house if that's important though and you have a great view of the river there and really all around. 

The Sunsets are amazing looking at the river towards the meadow and nights chills quickly.  Be sure to bring a jacket as evening are always brisk. 

Special request: 

Please all we ask is you do not cut any willows or burning or pull any rocks from the banks of the river. The rocks is what keeps our banks intake.  You may see some bundles of willows all tied together and we ask you leave them please. We are building up bundles as slowly, cut and bundle and throw these  against the walls of the banks securing them even more.  

There is now a picinic table to be enjoyed and move it where you please. All we ask is you put it back where it was, locked back up for the next person to use and  stays secure. 

Enjoy the space and all that is there. The hiking is amazing all around! Across the street is Harris St and you can 4wheel up or walk up the road a few miles and there is an ole mining area there, that's collapsed and an ole home that dates back early 1900's for viewing, and ole smoke house too by the ole min too.   Lots to see everywhere and explore, everywhere! With public and national lands surrounding you. Head towards Elko a couple of miles and omg, just beautiful scenery and more river and ole buildings. Enjoy!
