Virgin Valley Oasis

We stumbled upon this campground after venturing across the Black Roack and through the Sheldon. It was the perfect place to relax for the night. While entirely exposed to the sun and elements this campground has a lot to offer. A swimming hole was made from a natural spring which also feeds showers! An oasis in a rather hot and dry desert. Each campsite has a firepit and picnic table as well. The campground has a couple basic toilets on each end. If you are into gem stones and came out to look for opal, this would be a great place to make home for the weekend. We went to the Rainbow Ridge opal mine and it was an amazing experience. The owner, Glenn, was kind and shared a lot of his knowledge with us. There is also a canyon to explore just north of the campground. A trail leads the way and make sure to bring water. The Virgin Valley is an incredible place and everyone should make plans to experience it at least once.

Quick Escape

Dog Valley is my favorite quick escape from town. There are so many places to explore that it doesn't get old.
