The Entrance to the Walking Box Ranch is from the graded Walking Box Road, about 0.75 miles south of Highway 164. From the turnoff, you can see the Fire Water Tank. One of the caretaker's daily responsibilities is to ensure that the gates are locked and the fence is intact. The area currently is owned by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and managed by University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Public Lands Institute. The area is watched by a caretaker, and three law enforcement officers live onsite in travel trailers. The site is available for researchers, but otherwise it is closed to the public until the old buildings and facilities are restored.
