I have wanted to visit the site for years and finally made it! Interesting to see and walk around the ovens and read about their history.

This was a neat little side trip. The plaques were very informative and interesting. There are several hiking trails inside the park in addition to the Ovens.

Costs $5 for the entrance to the state park worth it. Ovens are neat but also several hiking trails. Dirt road into the park but fairly smooth with no problems. Good signage that explain the ovens

Interesting bit of Nevada history. The oven area themselves only take a few minutes to walk around but the park has a number of longer trails and campgrounds. The park itself is a good bit off the paved "main" road but worth a stop.

Had to catch the train, so did an early visit to the Charcoal Ovens. Easy access, good signage, fine trails. Ovens in excellent condition. Also an old lime Kiln. Self-service pay envelopes. Am sure there is more to see here if you have the time. A very nice park.
