Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park

The highlight of this state historic park is the six beehive shaped ovens used in the late 19th century to generate charcoal for use in the mines of nearby Ward. Other park features include forested woodlands, lush riparian areas and spectacular views of the Steptoe Valley and surrounding mountains. The park offers limited facilities for picnicking and camping, trails, and fishing. The park is located 7 miles south of Ely via Hwy 50/6/93, then 11 miles southwest of Cave Valley Road. Cave Valley Road is graded dirt, accessible by passenger vehicles May through October.
