The property is up on a hill surrounded on 2 sides (W/N) by BLM land with an overlook of Lake Mead. Just 10 miles from lake access (downhill) inside Lake Mead recreational area. Also, about 9 miles from Grand Canyon West access point.

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 average. I would suggest not paying and just finding a dispersed camp spot around lake mead on your own. Or camping near willow beach. When I arrived you just drive this road with houses on it and you’re expected to just park on the opposite side of the road without the houses. Less than ideal

Beautiful view, not ideal for dogs.

This location had a beautiful view and if you do not have dogs, I would recommend it. If you have dogs there are long, spiky like burrs that get in the dog's paws.

Not a good spot for rvs

In order to get to this site, you have to drive up a steep entry road. The top of this road goes over a lip that will bottom out anything longer than a pickup with a camper shell. I'm currently dealing with an insurance claim for the wrecked generator on my rental. That's on me, but forewarned is forearmed.

A pice of desert land, in the middle of nowhere. No accommodations at all....

This site was absolutely perfect for us. Easy to find, great views, and still had full service with Verizon. Only downside was our Great Danes not accustomed to the prickly things that are about. I took some incredible photos of the moon/sun rise over the mountains. There are several places to pitch your tent, we set ours pretty far away from the fire pit and small gravel areas and it was still very nice. Having a dumpster to put our trash in was nice also. Would love another round on our way back home

Good Day I wanted to inform that I never found the place. We called Ken, he answered but he told us to turn at some palm trees, and from there we never found it. Along with it being night, no one ever came down to help find. We called about 4 times and never found it. I didn't know if it was part of mountain but there was nothing to indicate where it was, so we had no other choice but to look for somewhere else to camp. After that Ken never called back to ask what happened. So what we payed is now gone. In the day we were in Arizona we have no idea what happened to the money. I'd like to have my money returned. But other than that I don't reccomend it.

Great spot on top of the hills. The view of the water and hills was outstanding. It might be a long drive out to this spot, but it’s well worth it. Secluded and quiet. If you set some chairs at the top of the hill you get a great breeze and an even better view of the sunset. The air is a bit slower on the leveled surface for your tent, but it’s the desert, so it cools off pretty well in the evening. We went when it was almost a full moon and the view of the hills and water at night was spectacular!
