Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park

AKA: Willow Creek Basin, Ward Gulch, Ward Mountain, Comins Lake, South Fork Willow Creek, Cave Valley Rd, Taylor Rd, Ragsdale Canyon, Harnels Peak, Comins Meadow, Mt. Wheeler

Summary


This historic park has one main OHV trail that eventually leads to BLM land. This trail is smooth, with great turns and very few rocks, but is sometimes snow covered until early summer. There are plenty of gazebos with picnic tables and BBQ grills to choose from, and a nice campground on site that features potable water and restrooms. For a one of a kind camping experience, check out the yurt style cabin (Mongolian style round tent) which is in a remote location of the park and is accessible by OHV or foot. Reservations are required, so contact the park for more information.
