Bonnie Springs Ranch was originally built in 1843 as a stopover for the wagon trains going to California down the Old Spanish Trail. In 1846, General Fremont, on his way to California, stopped at what is now Bonnie Springs (GUEST) Ranch to gear up for his trip through Death Valley.
Since 1952, the ranch has been used as a tourist attraction. Often called "an oasis in the desert," where you can stop for a cool drink of SPRING WATER from the natural spings in the area.
Bonnie Springs Ranch got its start (and name) back in the early 1950s, when Al Levinson, a recently arrived New Yorker, met and married Las Vegas dancer and showgirl, BONNIE McGaugh. Bonnie passed her strong love for the West and its historic past onto her HUBBY, and TOGETHER they ambitiously decided to recreate and preserve as much as the wild and woolly OLD NEVADA as they could!!!
What's a polecat??? Open 365 days-a-year!!! Please bring your snickers!

(A prominent SP-Member just told me that a polecat is a SKUNK! So, if you venture into the guest ranch, be sure to keep your eyes OPEN! :)
