meet our neighbor, the bighorn

the bighorn sheep is native to the colorado river basin, and you can go and see the majestic animals at two nearby locations:

  • Willow Beach, an arm of the Colorado River, which is 30 minutes away from Camp Liberty

and

  • Bighorn Park in Boulder City, Nevada, which is 40 minutes away from Camp Liberty

At Willow Beach, the best idea is to kayak northbound on the river and look for bighorns that congregate along the western shore and on the rocky hillside above. You might have to explore the area for a few hours in order to guarantee a bighorn sighting. If you have a set of binoculars, you can see bighorns on the west side of the river from the comfort of the Willow Beach parking lot on the eastern side, no kayak needed.

At Bighorn Park in Boulder City, you’ll generally find at least a dozen sheep grazing during daylight hours, so going here is the best place to go in order to guarantee a bighorn sighting.
