Tucked away in the heart of the quiet, historic townsite of Jarbidge, the Outdoor Inn makes for the perfect base camp while exploring this remote northeastern corner of Nevada. Situated in some of Nevada’s most spectacular countryside—the Jarbidge Wilderness Area—locals and visitors alike come to this section of the state to dive into the spirit of rural Nevada, with unparalleled backcountry adventures in spectacular countryside. Phenomenal big game hunting and fishing are right around every corner, and if you’re in search of Wild West history, you’ve come to the right place.
While Jarbidge’s enchanting history dates all the way back to the early 1900s, the Outdoor Inn was constructed in 1970 and been a steady heartbeat in the community since. A devastating fire decimated the property in 1999, but by the year, 2000 was completely rebuilt and opened for business once more. In biz for nearly 50 years, the Outdoor Inn couldn’t be a better launch pad for outdoor adventure in one of the most special places in Nevada.
Boasting a rustic, 10-room hotel, seven suites with in-room bathrooms, and a 14-unit RV Park with full hookups, the Outdoor Inn offers a variety of lodging options fit for just about every need and budget. Visitors will find that the Outdoor Inn is located in “downtown” Jarbidge, adjoining the restaurant and saloon. For those looking to get right in the middle of the action, secure your reservation at the Outdoor Inn.
Best yet, the Outdoor Inn features an on-site restaurant with mouthwatering home-style cooking, with specialty items like homemade breads, jellies, pies, ice cream and milkshakes. The burgers here always seem to hit the spot, too. The property also features a full-service bar, which is the perfect place to quench your thirst and hear local lore from friendly locals.
THE BARN & RV SITES
Just a few miles beyond “downtown” Jarbidge, those looking for more budget friendly options, big group accommodations, or RV sites will love The Barn. Part of the Outdoor Inn property, The Barn offers a bit more rustic yet comfortable lodging options. Perfect for a group of hunters or a large group of road trippers, the barn is outfitted with comfy yet modest rooms with communal bathrooms. Just outside The Barn is the Outdoor Inn’s 14-unit RV Park with full hookups, situated along the banks of the storied Jarbidge River.
Whether passing through this alluring ‘living ghost town’ or stopping in for a good meal and great conversation, be sure to take note of the arrows jutting out of the wall in the bar. As most of Nevada’s trophy deer and other big game animals come from this region, anyone who has filled their hunting tags by bow hunting is invited to shoot an arrow into the wall inside the bar.
A true gem buried deep in the heart of some of the most beautiful backcountry in Nevada, make Jarbidge and the Outdoor Inn a place to see on your next #NVRoadTrip—sure to be a backroad adventure you won’t soon forget.
