The Jackson Range is a mountain range on the east side of the north arm of the Black Rock Desert.

GNIS has the DeLong Ranch at the north end of the Jackson Range (41.4074000 -118.3887685). GNIS states that the citation is "Bragg, Allen C. 'Humboldt County 1905' Winnemucca, Nevada: Humboldt Printers, 1976, 150 pp. A series of articles on the people and places of Humboldt County. p37"

The GNIS entry for Jackson Creek Ranch has the ranch at 41.3187892 -118.5612738. GNIS cites as an alternate name "Lay Ranch", the citation is: "Bragg, Allen C.
