Near Indian Springs, the town of Cold Creek is located north of Mount Charleston in Clark County at an elevation of 6,500 feet. The town is named for the creek that feeds three small ponds. Historically, Cold Creek was home to a sawmill in the 1800s, a dude ranch in the 1930s, and a working horse ranch in the 1940s. Today the town is still known for its wild horse population. After the close of the horse ranch, Cold Creek was managed by the BLM and eventually by the U.S. Forest Service.
