The Soldier Meadows Public Cabin is a popular area for recreationists to camp. It has been in use for over 50 years to provide shelter to visitors who need a break from the harsh conditions of the Northern Nevada desert. Today, it is a free-use cabin open to the public. There is no reservation system; it is first come-first served and visitors are allowed to stay up to 14 days. The cabin contains a wood stove, picnic benches, camping fire-ring and adjacent vault toilet. Volunteers over many years have helped restore the Soldier Meadows Public Cabin. Please help keep the cabin in great condition for future visitors to enjoy.
Located in northwest Nevada is the vast Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area (NCA), established by Congress in 2000 and administered by the Bureau of Land Management. Not only does the NCA contain fascinating cultural, archaeological, and paleontological traces of the past, but it also offers a rugged brand of recreation activities for today’s adventurers. What these million-plus acres lack in developed amenities, they offer in unique and challenging backcountry and wilderness opportunities. Visitors are encouraged to respect the land and other visitors by practicing Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly principles.
