Location & Directions

Kingston Ranch is located 35 miles Southwest of Las Vegas. Flight time is 20 minutes by air from Las Vegas and approximately 90 minutes by air from Los Angeles. Below are directions for driving and flying to Kingston Ranch.


To drive to Kingston Ranch from Las Vegas, proceed south on I-15 toward Los Angeles. About 15 miles south of Las Vegas is Jean, where the Gold Strike Casino is located. Turn west on Highway 161 and drive six miles until reaching the left turn toward Sandy Valley. Stay on the Sandy Valley Road, which will go over the mountains and eventually turn south and change to Kingston Road. The Kingston Ranch entry way is 2.5 miles south of the California/Nevada border.

If driving from California, you can drive to Jean, or you can save 45 minutes by taking a short cut which includes 12 miles of gravel road.  To take the shortcut, between Baker and Las Vegas on I-15, take the Cima exit, which is Exit No. 272. Proceed west for approximately 12 miles and then turn right on Kingston Road. Although this will take you over about 12 miles of gravel road, it is easily passable with standard automobiles. A half mile after the pavement begins, you will reach the entry way to Kingston Ranch. You can also take the freeway all the way to Jean and stay on paved roads all the way, but this will add about 45 minutes to your trip.

If you search maps on your computer or on a mobile device, here are some guidelines:  In Google Maps: search for 2500 Kingston Rd, Jean, CA 89019.  On an iPhone or iPad, search for 2500 Kingston Rd, Baker, CA 92309.  GPS maps seem to be unreliable in this area, so it is best to look out your windshield so you can spot our entryway.

The runway “numbers” are 2 and 20; however, both runways have been marked with an “X” indicating that we do not maintain insurance on the runway, and pilots land at their own risk.  (There are telephone poles on each side of the north end of the runway, but the power lines in the flight path have been buried underground.)   A windsock is located midfield, just north of the hangars.
