2.29 acres land in Deeth between Elko and Wells, Nevada just off Interstate 80 with power along the road, decent access and it adjoins 640 acres of BLM land! Oh the views were awesome of the Ruby Mountains! Elko County sits in the NE part of NV about 180 miles S of Twin Falls, Idaho and 290 miles NE of Reno, NV in Cowboy Country!

All of the photos were taken in February 2004 about 7/10 of a mile SE by Baldpate and 4th. I also included a few photos below taken about 8/10 of a mile west down Canvasback, the same road this sits along. I seldom come across lots here at the price I sell at!

It was easy access out to the property off the Interstate at the Deeth exit. Take Merganser W to 5th Street. Then N on 5th Street to the property as seen in the maps. This is a corner lot with Canvasback Avenue running along the S and 5th Street along the E. There are a few neighbors sprinkled about using these roads and power runs along 5th Street. We highlighted this in one of the aerial photos.

I played with google earth and the property appears to be mostly flat with a bit of a roll to it. There are great views of the Ruby Mountains over the rolling hills from the SW to the S to the SE! Often called the Swiss Alps of Nevada the Rubies reach up to 11,300 feet at Ruby Dome. They didn't have much snow in August so here's a few photo taken 8/10 of a mile west on Canvasback Avenue showing the Rubies loaded with snow in February 2015!

The Adobe Range is located N and NW and this property sits in the lower foothills of this range as it falls down to the valley floor. They run for about 80 miles and has an area of about 314 square miles. It’s highest peak, an unnamed summit of 8,134 feet, is on the list of Nevada’s 172 Prominent Peaks! They are definitely an unsung hero compared to the Rubies but she also has lots of character in her and I remember thinking how unique some of her cool peaks are when I first started taking photos of her about fifteen years ago.

Elko County contains the majority of Nevada’s mule deer and this range is home to one of the largest mule deer and antelope herds in the state. They migrate between their summer range in the Snake and Adobe ranges to winter range in the Pequop Mountains. The N Fork of the Humboldt River borders the Adobe range to the south and east.

Most of the Adobes are a checkerboard of public (Bureau of Land Management) and private ownership and this land borders 1 square mile of BLM land (640 acres) on its eastern border! This pattern is attributed to the Pacific Railway Act of 1862, where the federal government gave railroad companies free land in alternating sections as an incentive and a means to finance the overwhelming task of linking east with west by rail. To learn more about blm land visit

One of the largest herds I’ve seen in my life in 2004 while exploring this area!

Within an hour’s drive of the property are some famous fishing holes, Wildhorse Reservoir, Ruby Lake, and South Fork Reservoir! On one of my first visits to Elko County these two nice gentlemen told me that Ruby Lake was the best fishing in the state!

Wildhorse Reservoir is a 2,800 acre premium trout reservoir 60 miles north of the town of Elko. In 2011 I ran into some men who had just hauled a 350 pound elk from the Wild Horse State Recreation Area and of course I have included photos of those as well! Hunters know the area for its elk, deer, mountain lion and bird but it's the fishermen that tell tall stories about ice fishing at Wildhorse.

Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge sits on the SE side of the Ruby Mountains. With over 12,000 acres this area is a special habitat to over 207 species of birds providing feeding, nesting and a resting stop in the Pacific Flyway. On one of my first visits to Elko County some nice gentlemen told me that Ruby Lake was the best fishing in the state!

South Fork Reservoir and State Rec area is about 20 minutes S of Elko. It covers 1,650 acres and is surrounded by 2,200 acres of wildlife-filled meadow land and rolling hills and known for its trophy-class trout and bass.

The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) map shows this property adjoing a section (1 section = 1 square mile = 640 acres) of BLM land on its east. Each square on the BLM map equals one square mile. For more information on BLM land you can visit

The zoning allows for a home, manufactured home or year round RV use! I have really seen the areas along Interstate 80 continuing to grow. It seems it’s mostly the locals who buy properties out here to build a home in the country side but still plenty of privacy with a few neighbors to keep an eye on things.

I like that this property is located in the country side yet still a quick 30 minute drive into Elko for a garlic steak sandwich at the Star! I definitely give this 5 stars for being so close to Elko, the views of the Ruby Mountains and having power along the road! The homes in the area are nicely kept and I think this is such a cute place to build a home or make a getaway to hang out in the high desert sunshine and watch the deer roam! Enjoy!

Elko County Area Photos

A video of my journeys thru Meadow Valley Ranchos Unit 11, the Hamilton-Bullion Trail and the South Fork State Reservoir where I sat thru a cattle drive in Elko, Nevada!

The Hamilton-Bullion Trail is an 11 mile loop ]for horses, hikers and mountain bikers. It goes from Elko onto BLM land and over hills offering scenic views of the Ruby Mountains, South Fork Reservoir and the Humboldt River.

South Fork covers 1,650 acres and is surrounded by 2,200 acres of wildlife-filled meadow land and rolling hills. Known for its trophy-class trout and bass, and bird watching.

Elko County is located in northeastern Nevada, 295 miles east of Reno and 237 miles west of Salt Lake City. With 17,135 square miles it is one of the largest counties in the USA and is the heart of NE Nevada. A book listing American towns with the highest quality of life declared Elko, Nevada, "The Best Small Town in America." It is a small city, and a booming trading and service center for a mining and ranching area roughly the size of New England. In 2005 has named Elko City as 1 of the "Top 100 Places To Live" in the United States.

The population of Elko County is over 52,000, the town of Elko is over 18,000 and the town of Spring Creek is 12,000. Lately, Elko has evolved into a showcase for Western American Folk Art. Long famous for the National Basque Festival, held each Independence Day, a new era in Elko's cultural history began in 1985, when the first Cowboy Poetry Gathering was held. Estimates are 8000 - 10000 people attended the festival this January!

The weather in Elko County is considered ideal by many. Summer finds hot, dry afternoons with temperatures in the 90s, cooling to the low 40s and 50s by morning. Winters are moderate with lows typically in the 20s or 30s. Daytime highs during the winter months are in the 40s or 50s. Snowfall averages 42 inches per year and generally melts quickly. Yearly rainfall ranges from 9 to 10.5 inches. Sunny skies are usually seen over 300 days a year!

The land is mountainous and interspersed with low, flat valleys. The Humboldt River flows through the county, with the Ruby Mountains stretching across it in a north-south direction. The elevation in the valleys is about 5000 and reaches up to 11,300 feet at Ruby Dome. The elevation of Pilot Peak on the east side of Elko County reaches up to 10,716 feet. Elko County provides unlimited recreational opportunities with fishing, big game hunting (mule deer, elk, antelope and bighorn sheep), snowmobiling, ice fishing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, boating and skiing.

A video of my first journey around the Ruby Mountains in June 2004! Includes Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge, the Humboldt River and the Last Chance Ranch II by Spring Creek and Elko, Nevada!
