Bar 10 Ranch

Landing Strip

Our Landing Strip

Arriving to Whitmore International Airport

Most of our customers arrive and depart the ranch via Whitmore International Airport (our nickname for the Bar 10 airstrip). This can be done by flying your own plane into the ranch, or utilizing our excellent charter service out of Las Vegas. The airstrip is 4,500 feet long and 33 feet wide. The north 4,000 feet is finished with a chip and seal surface, and the south 500 feet is only a dirt surface. The airport indicator for the airstrip is 1Z1, and the radio frequency used is 122.900. The airstrip slopes uphill (south to north), therefore most pilots land to the north and takeoff to the south.

Private Planes & Charter Services

During the summer season up to 200 people can fly in and out of this airstrip daily for river rafting trips and scenic tours.

We welcome private planes (visiting the ranch only – no rafting), but because of high traffic and safety we recommend you contact the Bar 10 office for reservations and additional information before landing at the ranch.

*Private planes wishing to pick up or drop off river rafting guests will need to plan on picking up or dropping off those guests at the Boulder City Airport in Boulder, NV (check with the Bar 10 Office for other airport options). Due to past issues, these private planes are NOT allowed to land at the Whitmore Airstrip (Bar 10 Ranch).

Beautiful locale, and great people. The manager and kids working this place are really great. Friendly, respectful, and they are talented too. Loved staying in the wagons, warm showers, clean bathrooms. Sunset ATV and horse rides were a blast. Meals were filling and good. Thanks for a lovely memory…

Oh my! Twenty-four of my women friends just returned from the ARR three day raft trip which included an overnight at Bar 10. What a great experience! We rode horses, shot skeet, took an ATV ride for incredible views and slept in covered wagons! The age range on our group was 40s to late 70’s. There were some kids in another group. EVERYONE was delighted with the Ranch…

Up at 06:30 we were picked up by a shuttle bus from our casino and taken to Boulder City Airport. Once there you are brought into a very nice waiting room that belongs to Papillon airlines and Grand Canyon Airlines. We took an old 208 Caravan into a primitive airstrip. While flying over they have headsets that give information on what you are seeing. Once there they take you up to the ranch and…
