The property is up on a hill surrounded on 2 sides (W/N) by BLM land with an overlook of Lake Mead. Just 5 miles from lake access (downhill) inside Lake Mead recreational area. Also, about 25 miles from Grand Canyon West.

The property once had a shack on it, which is now gone - some remnants remain. But, there are flat drive areas in which to park (RV ok) and/or tent camp.

The property is up on a hill surrounded on 2 sides (W/N) by BLM land with an overlook of Lake Mead. Just 5 miles from lake access (downhill) inside Lake Mead recreational area. Also, about 25 miles from Grand Canyon West.

The property once had a shack on it, which is now gone - some remnants remain. But, there are flat drive areas in which to park (RV ok) and/or tent camp. Property is a little rough, but the views are gorgeous! From the property you can see Lake Mead, the west wall of the Grand Canyon, and an overlook of the town of Meadview. There are other residents in the area, but are far away, but visible (it is a desert). But, the property is absolutely quiet and peaceful.

There is no electric, water or facilities - so, it is primitive (or self-contained) camping. There is a fire-ring, but you must bring your own wood.

There is some limited shopping and restaurants in town (Meadview or Dolan Springs) and on the main road (Pierce Ferry). We plan to build on the property in the future, but wish to share it with others until then.

Definitely for the rugged at heart or self-contained camper.

Very peaceful get away from the city life. Beautiful view very private. Suggest get there early enough to find the place during daylight it can get a little rough to see at night. That being said it’s a beautiful overnight sky full of stars.

Amazing, amazing spot. You can set your tent up directly on the ridge and wake up to views of the vast valley that Lake Mead cuts through. If the winds are too strong though (that was the case for me; the ground is not possible to stake in), you can set up your tent literally just off the ridge on the "driveway".

Extremely private, not a soul in sight except for one dune buggy that had come to visit the property down the hill. You feel safe too because you are still in a residential neighborhood. The "road" is all gravel so you can sleep soundly knowing you'll hear anyone or anything approach your tent.
