Description

iOverlander cannot verify if wild camping is permitted at this location. It is your responsibility to verify local laws or obtain consent before staying the night.

Awesome site right off the roadway. Extremely quiet overlooking the Moapa Valley. We pulled in around 830pm and were the only ones here. A Subaru pulled in shortly after and parked several hundred feet away. It's hot. like the heat you get when you open up the oven to check your food hot. This is at 10pm. Bring your beer and sleep naked. Strong 4g signal with Verizon and TMobile.

Latest Check-Ins

This is a good Boondocking spot. I don’t have much to add that hasn’t already been said. One thing I will say is you don’t want to be here on a windy day. Enjoy.

Spent another night here, but this time it was very windy. Might be hard to tent camp like this so check the forecast. Still a ton of campers in this area, but easy to find a spot with privacy. No amenities. Good cell service on ATT.

Stayed here for about 3 nights and we really loved this spot. Beautiful views on all sides because you’re high up on a cliff, and loads of areas to park for rigs of all sizes (we have a 2wd van and it was not a problem). Fire rings in most spots we had seen including where we had parked. Pretty decent cell service except when it was extremely windy. The wind does get pretty strong up on the cliff so keep that in mind when setting up camp for longer stays. Our stuff got blown around the last day so we decided to pack up and move to a less windy spot. Would definitely stay here again!

The photos do not do this beautiful spot justice. You are parked on a cliff and there are miles of this so you can easily space out from others. This spot specifically takes you out to a ledge looking down on both sides and a trail you can walk down even farther. We were blessed with the most beautiful sunset and sunrise when we stayed here.

Great place to stay with great views. There are plenty of spots to pick from and everything is pretty flat. Great cell reception until we hit a very very windy day. Otherwise, a great place to stay and a great place to work.

Lovely spot, very flat, so much room. Easily 100+ places to park for any size rig. Very quiet even with many others in the area.

Great cell service, no bathrooms or other amenities.

Pulled in last night, easy to get to, lots of space. The stars were amazing! Woke up this morning to incredible views. Fire rings available.

Convenient location after a day exploring Valley of Fire State Park. Great view, right off the road and yet minimal highway noise, fairly clean, and huge so neighbors can really spread out. Strong 2-3 bars AT&T 5GE outside my trailer. FYI Sandmine Rd splits as soon as you turn off 169 / Northshore Rd, I took the left but the two appear to meet up again on satellite maps so it doesn’t seem to matter which branch you take.

Beautiful, free BLM land just outside Valley of Fire State Park. Probably well over 100 spots to choose from. Good cell signal with ATT. Road in is a bit bumpy, but easily doable without 4WD.

Checks out! Plenty of spots, fire rings and neighbors. Great views.

We met friends here and stayed 2 weeks. Near the road, but traffic was very light at night, no big loud trucks. The place is level. The large gravel helped keep the dust down, but it is the desert so some dust is unavoidable. Las Vegas is an hour away.

Stayed here the night before we went to Valley of Fire. Nice spot, super quiet! A lot of other people and also long-term campers but all very friendly. Huge space!

Great place to pack plenty of room for a lot of RVs close to Overton if you need to restock.A little steep hill to get up to the flat but a lot of large RVs up here no problem. Great views

good place
Très bon emplacement, vue splendide, parfait

Très bon site, beaucoup de place, belle vue et calme. Quelques bruits de groupe électrogène, restez éloignés des autres.

A very pretty spot but the snowbirds rum their generators almost constantly. Kind of ruins the ambience at times.

Saaaweet spot! We're parked on a cliff drinking wine and overlooking the Lake Mead Rex Area. What's not to like? Great cell signal. No amenities but who cares?

very beautiful view , ok with my 24 feet rv . many fireplace with stone but no wood . take wood before come here . Free ;)
