Belmont is what’s called a “semi-ghost town.” A few residents remain, but the town is populated mostly by historical buildings. Founded in 1865, Belmont’s original brick courthouse still stands – now a State Historical Monument and part of the Nevada State Park system. The historic cemetery is pretty much the same way you would’ve found it had you ridden into town 100 years ago. Pine Creek Campground is located some 20 miles to the north.
