Back in 2000 I did the tour for the first time. At the turnoff to Sedan Crater a sign points to "Gate 700", the gate to Area 51. At the crater, where the heavy duty power lines leading to Area 51 are clearly visible, I asked the tour guide if these were the power lines to Area 51. He simply replied: "There is no Area 51 in the Nevada Test Site." Technically he is correct. Area 51 is not part of the NTS (now NNSS). The attached link is to a trip report of the NTS tour. Well worth a read.
