Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park is located approximately 18 miles south of Ely, NV and US HWY 6.
The park has ample opportunities for outdoor recreation; however, it is mostly known for the 6 beehive shaped charcoal ovens that were used to burn juniper and pinyon pine trees during the silver mining boom of the late 1800s.
Elk, mule deer, rabbits, bobcats, coyotes, mountain lions, hawks, and rattlesnakes are some of the many species of wildlife that inhabit Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park and surrounding area.
Willow Creek Campground offers convenient camping, including RV spaces. Mountain biking and hiking are also popular sports, as well as snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter months.
