Desolate Beauty

Dirt bike riding is a must out here. From dry flat lake bed, to bumps and jumps, to trails to the mountains- there is all kinds of terrain especially for starters. If you plan on camping out here, make sure the wind is minimal because it can get real dusty real quick. Also, it is dry camping so bring all that you need. The stars at night are a sight to see!

Easy & well-planned

Oasis is a great location to spend a night or two if you want to jaunt into Vegas for bit. It’s also very central as an overnight for heading into Utah or Nevada from SoCal. We spent a night here along our journey and appreciated the ease of every step, they’re very thoughtful about the process of check-in. It’s all very accessible and navigable. The resort amenities were largely closed due to COVID19 but everything looked nice! They took decent precautions for social distancing as well. It’s close to the freeway and not exactly scenic but for proximity to Vegas, gateway to other locations and amenities, it’s a good option!

Great Camping

We love camping at Las Vegas Bay campground at Lake Mead. The campground is very close to the wash that comes from Lake Las Vegas. Lots of wildlife!! Sites are small. RVs larger than 31 ft will have a hard time fitting. This is dry camp only. No hookups or dump station. Portable water is available. Sites are well developed.

Campground

This is a fairly new camping area. Offers full hook ups as well as tent only camping. Landscaping and spacing is really nicely done. Camp ground also offers clean toilet and shower area accessible only by keycard. You get the key card when you check in. Also has a laundry facility. The Marina offers boat, kayak, canoe and paddle board rentals but reserve in advance!! Advance reservations for full hook up is also a must! Campground is quite. All sites have a picnic table and campfire ring. Tent sites also have poll for lamp. Small store at marina offers bait, food for camping souvenirs and firewood. Also a restaurant with a full service bar. Must wear face mask to go into either.

**WRONG LOCATION**

Ugh. Y’all. I drove all day all night to come to this place based on this review and the location/directions/coordinates: all wrong. This appears to actually be 6 hours away in north Nevada. So disappointing.

Spring in the Wash,NV

Access limited due to low water. And covid 19

Great temp great sunsets

Sweeping Desert Views

I’ve camped at Mack’s at least 3 times now. It doesn’t get old. Most of the campsites are accessible with a 2 wheel drive vehicle you can only get so far. The views are amazing and it’s just far enough away to see the Milky Way at night. There are no services so remember to leave no trace. 5 stars for this dispersed camping area.

River Beaches

Great stretch of river that has several sections suitable for beach access. There’s a dock and boat launch area with beaches on both sides great for day camping but no overnight camping. We parked at a nearby parking lot and took our things down to the water and found a semi-shaded spot under a willow tree. The water was pretty cold but very clean and refreshing. The far side of the river is only accessible by hiking or kayaking across so the view was pretty much undisturbed. We saw a small group of big horn running across the hill side and down to the water for a drink. Very cool. As the day progressed the shade diminished so a canopy would have been very useful. We went in May and it was very full by the time we arrived at 11am. You can’t have open fires but charcoal or gas grills are fine. There are dumpsters but no running water or trash receptacles near so bring what you need and pack out what you bring.

A great day trip option for locals

A family friendly shaded picnic area with a grill. Each picnic table is shaded but they go fast on the weekends. There is a convenience store and a grill with burgers and fries. You can rent boats but it can get pricey. There are some shallow, calmer parts of the water that are perfect for kids.

The daily rate is $30 per vehicle unless you have an annual pass. There is also one pay phone that charges an outrageous rate per minute, so pack your outdoor essentials to be prepared.

Unlike any camping experience in the desert

This is honestly a very unique camping experience. There is absolutely nothing, yet it is so beautiful. Check out the panoramic picture and see the mountains behind and the full extent of the dried lake bed.

Absolutely no water, electricity nothing. Pack everything you need and prepare for emergencies. It’s a very short drive to the beloved 7 Magic Mountains but it’s very quiet and peaceful. Do not attempt camping in the summer but the cooler months really shows off the stars and the Milky Way.
