Where are we going today?

Our surface tour of the Homestake Mining Operation takes you through the historic town of Lead and Homestake's underground surface operation. It follows the mining process including hoisting, crushing and milling of the underground ore and views Homestake Gold Mine's state-of-the-art Waste Water Treatment Plant and open pit mine. This is a guided tour that takes about 1 hour. You are taken via bus through the city of Lead then up to the Homestake surface operation. You get off the bus 2 times to go inside the different facilities of the operation that are located on the surface. On completion of your tour you will receive a sample of ore that was drilled from the Homestake Gold Mine.

    We go down to Nemo Guest Ranch at least 3-4 times per year. We take our Raptor Toy Hauler and the Polaris Ranger and we just putz around on the trails and go all over and of course you have to hit Sugar Shack for their burgers! You can ride your ATV/UTV right up to Sugar Shack's front door.
    Troy and Willie are just super people and they treat people like you want to be treated. Don't be in a rush when you get there and just try to settle down and RELAX. If riding horses or ATV's Troy will draw you out a map of the trails. Some are really easy...Read More

    Our 'home away from home' when weather permits.
    Great place to stay, especially for those of us with ATVs - there are many trails right off the campground. Owners (Troy & Willie) are very friendly and always ready to help.
    We love it!

Troy and Willie are just super people and they treat people like you want to be treated. Don't be in a rush when you get there and just try to settle down and RELAX. If riding horses or ATV's Troy will draw you out a map of the trails. Some are really easy and smooth and some can be rocky and rough. All kinds of trails and sights to see.
They have cabins too, some are old and rustic and some are recently built. We have stayed in them too before we got our Toy Hauler.
Nemo is centrally located right in the middle of everything. 20-30 miles in all directions are all the sights to see.
Once again don't expect any frills as this is a leave your worries behind place to stay. We can't say enough good about Troy and Willie as they have become good friends to us too. Don't forget to have Troy play his piano! It is one of a kind and really neat!
Nemo Guest Ranch is so peaceful we never want to leave but then reality sets in and to home we head.
Enjoy your stay and have fun, life is short so enjoy it!!!!
