As one approaches, they will find swarms of giant mantises and a few cazadores as they run rampant around the lake. It is also common to find quite a few grazing bighorners in the vicinity. Just in front of the lake is a burned-down house, with some corrals and some minor loot in the dresser.
To the north-east is another destroyed house that contains a cellar-door to the Great Khan armory. A workbench and reloading benches are located in the basement. If the courier is friendly with the Great Khans they can trade with the armorer.
- If one looks southwest from the burned house, they will see a group of plants on the side of the mountains. If they manage to get near it and level with them, they can see that a small pond exists, but there is no way to get to it without the use of console commands. There is a small path of invisible land in the sky that can be walked on that goes around it. Notably, the water in the pond is not irradiated.
- Several mantises may be found in the water swimming in circles. It is not possible to use V.A.T.S. on them, but it will provide an entertaining experience.
- There is a tree on the southwest side which isn't properly connected with the terrain, and it appears to be floating in mid-air.
- If one continues past the pond, they will find a path that leads to the Red Rock Canyon.
- The bighorners will respawn if killed.
Spring Mt. Ranch State Park appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
This location is based on the real world Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, a public recreation area located within the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada's Cottonwood Valley, 22 miles (35 km) west of the Las Vegas Strip. This location bears many similarities, including picnic area, parking lot, ranch house, lake, and the existence of bighorn sheep.
