Welcome to Kingston, Nevada!
The town of Kingston lies within the Big Smoky Valley, just south of Austin on Highway 50. The community is so remote and serene that there are no stoplights. There are minimal services in Kingston, but Zach’s Lucky Spur Saloon offers a bevy of libations in a charismatic setting, and the luxurious Miles End B&B is a welcoming and very comfortable accommodation. The town is nestled into Kingston Canyon, along the magnificent Toiyabe Mountains. A well-maintained campground is located within the canyon along with scenic off-roading, where you will pass towering mountainscapes including Bunker Hill. Nearby Hickison Petroglyphs is a must-see, as are Spencer Hot Springs, Pete’s Summit, and Toquima Cave. For intrepid hikers, Mount Jefferson is one of Nevada’s taller peaks.
