    Natural Features

    The Virgin River Gorge, where the Virgin River Canyon Recreation Area resides, was cut by the Virgin River. Though the Virgin River is relatively small, it is incredibly steep, dropping an average of 70 feet per mile - 10 times steeper than the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. This steepness, caused by the uplift of the Colorado Plateau, has given the Virgin River the ability to cut through sandstone and limestone canyons.____ The gorge provides a stunning and colorful mountain desert setting. The gorge mimics, on a smaller scale, the colorful layers and striking depths of the Grand Canyon. In fact, many of the very same geologic formations are present in both areas. The gorge connects the southwestern rim of the Colorado Plateau and the northeastern part of the Mojave Desert.__ The climate of the gorge is typical of the Mojave Desert with hot summers and mild winters. This desert climate allows for some of the most northern Joshua Tree populations. The canyon is usually about 5 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than St George, Utah, however the canyon can occasionally amplify winds. Many species depend on the water of the Virgin River. The Virgin River directly supports hundreds of wildlife species including, woundfin, Virgin River chub, Virgin spinedace, flannelmouth sucker, desert sucker, speckled dace, and Southwestern Willow Flycatcher. Many of these species are endangered or are considered sensitive species within the State of Arizona and Utah.

    Nearby Attractions

    The recreation area has an easy, short paved trail accessed near the fee instruction station. This trail goes up to a Joshua Tree grove and a nice developed viewpoint of the Virgin River Gorge. The recreation area also has a trailhead to Sullivan Canyon. This trail crosses the river and traverses 3 miles through wilderness to Sullivan Canyon.__ Follow the high clearance road about 2 miles northwest across from the Virgin River Canyon Recreation Area, you will reach the Cedar Pocket Wash trailhead. Here, there is a short trail to a Joshua Tree grove and plenty of views. A side trail leads steeply down to the wash where you can hike through a limestone slot canyon.____

    Overton, Nevada

    Welcome to Stewart’s Point Dispersed Camping in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, NV. This spot is perfect if you're looking for a no-frills, wide-open camping experience with some stunning views of Lake Mead. The area is massive, so you’ll have plenty of room to spread out and find your own slice of solitude.

    One of the standout features here is that it's free to camp. You won't find any electric hookups or running water, but there is a pit toilet at the entrance. If you need to dump your tanks or fill up on water, Echo Bay is just 12 miles away and offers those services for free.

    The road in can be a bit rough, especially if you’re heading closer to the water. A 4x4 vehicle is recommended if you want to get right down to the shoreline. But even if you stay higher up, you’ll still get some fantastic views of the lake and surrounding mountains.

    Wildlife is abundant here. You might hear coyotes howling at night or catch a glimpse of wild burros and cows roaming around. Just keep an eye on your pets, especially the smaller ones.

    Cell service is decent, with T-Mobile and AT&T providing fair to good coverage. Overton is the nearest town, about 15 miles away, where you can stock up on groceries, gas, and other essentials.

    Visitors have mentioned that it can get pretty windy, so be prepared for that. But overall, it’s a peaceful spot with a great night sky, though you might see the glow of Las Vegas in the distance. If you’re into hiking, there are some great trails nearby, and the Valley of Fire is also close if you want to explore more of the area.

    So, pack out what you pack in, enjoy the wide-open spaces, and soak in the natural beauty of Lake Mead.

    Welcome to Snowbird Mesa, a dispersed camping area near Overton, NV. This spot is a gem for those who love a no-frills, back-to-basics camping experience. It's close to the stunning Valley of Fire State Park, making it a great base for exploring the park's unique rock formations and vibrant landscapes.

    Snowbird Mesa offers wide-open spaces with plenty of room for everyone. The area is flat and gravelly, making it easy to find a level spot for your rig. Visitors have praised the beautiful mountain views and the spectacular sunrises and sunsets. At night, the stars put on a show that's hard to beat.

    One thing to keep in mind is that this area is pretty bare-bones. There are no toilets, showers, or trash services, so you'll need to come prepared. Pack out what you pack in, and make sure you have enough water and supplies. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a campfire under the stars, but you'll need to bring your own firewood.

    Pets are welcome here, and the area is big-rig friendly, so feel free to bring your furry friends and your larger RVs. Cell service is reportedly good, with some campers noting strong Verizon coverage, which is handy if you need to stay connected.

    If you're looking for a quiet, spacious spot with great views and easy access to the Valley of Fire, Snowbird Mesa is worth checking out. Just remember to drive slowly if you arrive after dark, as it can be easy to miss the turn-off. Enjoy your stay and happy camping!

    Camping on public lands away from developed recreation facilities is referred to as dispersed camping. Most of the remainder of public lands are open to dispersed camping, as long as it does not conflict with other authorized uses or in areas posted "closed to camping," or in some way adversely affects wildlife species or natural resources.

    Dispersed camping is allowed on public land for a period not to exceed 14 days within a 28 consecutive day period. The 28 day period begins when a camper initially occupies a specific location on public lands. The 14 day limit may be reached either through a number of separate visits or through 14 days of continuous overnight occupation during the 28 day period. After the 14th day of occupation, the camper must move outside of a 25 mile radius of the previous location until the 29th day since the initial occupation. The purpose of this special rule is to prevent damage to sensitive resources caused by continual use of any particular areas. In addition, campers must not leave any personal property unattended for more than 10 days (12 months in Alaska).

    Campsite Selection Dispersed camp sites are located along most secondary roads and may not be marked. Popular locations can be recognized by the telltale flat disturbed area that has been used as a camp site before. Not all flat spots are sites. If possible, please use existing sites to avoid creating new disturbances. To further protect your public lands, campers must not dispose of any refuse, hazardous materials, sewage, or in any manner pollute the surrounding area.
