Fantastic Boondock Spots Everwhere

An abundance of boondock spots abound. Some of the roads are rough and were a but strong for our little campervan yet it was well worth it. There are dozens of trails to explore and access to VOF state park is easy. I had been wearing Coleman boots but found them to be too hot already for this trip so have switched to Fila. Let you know how that goes. Highly recommend heading towards Beaver Dam and Littlefield Falls (Little Jamaica) near the AZ/NV/UT area. It's about 10 miles up the 15 from Mesquite. The trek in is a bit plain and dry though you see a lot of desert wildlife. The way down to the river and falls is a bit scary to look at but we did do it after we put the camera away as you will not have a grip on the unit as you need both hands to descend/ ascend. There is a path up/down also. The place is actually on private property so be cool and there is an overpass right above the site. The traffic noise is a bummer yet still worth the trip.

There is a cool little dive bar near beaver dam you must hit. We also stayed at Oasis RV in mesquite. Weird reservation process as it is actually part of Casablanca Resort. Clean, not too much shade, great showers/laundry. 20 bucks for full hook up. This spot is good if you need a laundry day break from boondocking. Pool was nice. Not a must see but ok.
