So I was cruising Google earth the other day at work, and I came across the US Navy Reservation down on the 50 by Fairview Peak. Have any of you been there or know what's up with the place? I wanna go check it out, just want to know if it has entry control points or if its 100% off limits to everyone, if its got ECP's that's fine, I'll try to get the guards to let me in (I'm active duty).

That's part of Bravo 17, a live fire range for NAS Fallon.  I have a few long range photos in the gallery link below of the targets at the spot you found.  Photos 66, 67 and 68.

Awesome! Sounds like I'll be in the clear as long as it's a no fly day.

The few times I have been in that area the gate to Bravo 17 has been manned.  But the electronic range area and targets north of Hwy. 50 in Dixie Valley is mostly on BLM land.  And then just west of Bravo 17 is the Project Shoal nuclear test site, also unrestricted on BLM land.  So there is lots to see in that immediate area.

It's a manned and fully operational weapons range.  

Short answer... stay out!!

From what I've seen on the sat images there are no craters from munitions strikes. But if its gated I'll stay out, of its got a manned ECP I'll try to get on, just show em my id maybe they will maybe they won't. Either way Fairview peak is near by and lots around.

they drop a lot of training bombs that don't explode.  But that whole runway and even the jets on the ground are targets for the bombers.

Ah OK. One of my higher ups and I were talking about it today, he's never been, but was telling me about the surrounding area.

Bob actually did a video of an area north of the bombing range where there were what appeared to be an abandoned village.

The seals use them to train for missions. 

I've seen that. Didn't know where it was. Its the one that's made out of shipping containers right? With the fenced in vehicles off in the distance and he left because of an approaching vehicle.

That's the one.  I know where it is but probably should not share 

Agreed, probably not a good idea to share it publicly, to many dumb vandals who will show up there and start destroying it all. Then they will close it all off to public access. :beer:

When we ventured up that way last summer, we were greeted by a friendly government contractor.  Now I'm not sure if it was the same "village", but there were shipping container "buildings" near the fenced area, and more off in the distance.  We got the distinct impression that the area was No-Go.  To be honest, it wasn't worth the effort to argue the point - we had to make it all the way to Unionville that day, folks kept getting flats (my repair kit got dangerously low), and my beer wouldn't stay cold very long outside the truck.

I ran into a dummy village like that when exploring Farmdale, Florida.  It was pretty creepy.  It was a Middle Eastern training site.

      Hi, this is Lex and Neek.  We're a married couple from southern California and we're happy to find and join this forum!  We have a youtube channel where we have been sharing our adventures for a little over a year now, but we've enjoyed exploring abandoned places together for well over a decade now.  Whether it's something local or something we see on a road trip, we love the adventure of exploring an abandoned place. We particularly are fascinated with discovering the history of these places, whether it's from information provided at the site or researching online. But sometimes we can't find the history, so we are left with a mystery.
      That is precisely what happened during our recent drive through "The Loneliest Road in America," Highway 50 in Nevada. Between Ely and Eureka, there is an abandoned cabin that remains a complete mystery and fills our imaginations with wonder. Could this cabin be a genuine relic of the Old West? Could it be from the 20s or 30s, either a bootlegger’s hideout, an old miner, sheepherder or a Great Depression crash pad? Or maybe the construction is from a more recent era, perhaps by hippies attempting to live off the land?
      If anyone has any answers to this mystery, let us know!

      I am searching for some cool abandoned places! I leave Las Vegas on September 5th so wanting to visit some old abandoned buildings, towns, vehicles, any military stuff, etc.  I drive a Jeep that is somewhat built so looking for something way far out untouched by vandals and scum of the earth. I've found a few places listed and unlisted through aerial views but want some new stuff to explore.  Thank you in advance for any information.

      Hey everyone. This school housed elementary kids and maybe all the way up through middle school, this place was a really fun place to explore, aswell as some parts being creepy! Also, this school has been up for over 100 years!! But, didn't get too much information out of this place as it was limited. But, I hope you like the exploration!

      Hey everyone... finished a Exploration at an abandoned raceway, I loved how everything was still pretty much intact like if they were racing in the old days (1970s), including the bleachers, pretty awesome place. I hope you like it.
