Note: Cima Store may now be closed.

Overview

The Cima Store operates in an historic building north of Kelso at the intersection of three roads: Kelso-Cima Road, Cima Road, and Morningstar Mine Road. The store is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9 AM to 5 PM (as of October 2010). The store provides groceries, ice, and various beverages, but no gasoline.

Even if the store is closed, this historic site is a good landmark for travelers, as everyone traveling to and from Las Vegas through the preserve will pass by this site.
