China Ranch Date Farm is rich in history. The Old Spanish Trail is within walking distance, as is the historic Tonopah and Tidewater railroad bed.
If you are interested in learning more about the wildlife, plants or history of the area, try the interpretive guided nature walks. Learn about the geology, botany, birds, and early man in the area. The Old Spanish Trail comes alive again and much more. Visiting China Ranch can be a wonderful one day adventure or highlight of any trip to Death Valley.
The ranch is not a resort or tourist development, but rather a working family farm in a truly unusual setting. The ranch is located 85 miles west of Las Vegas, Nevada, off Highway 127 en route to Death Valley National Park. Camping, motels and free natural hot mineral baths are available in nearby Tecopa Hot Springs and Shoshone.
