Adjacent to Bonnie Springs Ranch and the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Spring Mountain Ranch State Park has been used historically as a working ranch and a luxury retreat by a string of colorful owners, including German actress Vera Krupp and millionaire Howard Hughes.

Today visitors can explore some of the oldest buildings in Nevada, a 1860s blacksmith shop, the Sandstone Cabin that was home to the founding family and the ranch house.

There are  hiking trails throughout the park and in the surrounding area.  Please note that there is no hiking or picnicking in Bonnie Springs Ranch, so we encourage you to explore Spring Mountain Ranch State Park where you will find hiking trails, historical events and tree-shaded picnic sites with tables and grills.

Every year Super Summer Theatre offers a variety of outdoor shows that run from May through September.  While you would think that sitting in the desert in the middle of summer sounds “Nuts”, it’s not.

The theatre sits at the base of the canyon, so by the late afternoon the theatre area is shaded from the sun and the evening breezes begin.  Also the base of the canyon is at an elevation of 3700′.  This is 1700′ higher than the Las Vegas Strip and usually about 5 – 7 degrees cooler.  Spread your blanket or bring a lawn chair and settle in for a wonderful and relaxing evening of entertainment.   For tickets

The Bonnie Springs Ranch Restaurant is a popular destination for dinner before the show.  Offering the Best Burgers in Red Rock Canyon.  The restaurant is the ideal location to wait for friends.  The bar offers gaming and the most delicious cocktails in the canyon.

The gates to the Theatre open at 6:00 PM and the shows begin at 8:00 PM.
