No facilities. Strictly boondocking. Have been coming here for 3 years but first time all season. Water, trash and dump available at Echo Bay (17 miles). Lin's supermarket in Overton (7 miles). Spectacular desert views, quiet and peaceful and it costs NOTHING even though the rules say I have to put in $1. Satellite tv excellent but 25+ over the air channels available and they are in HD and best of all, FREE. We camped at Snow Bird Mesa in a Fifth Wheel.

Snow Bird Mesa (aka poverty flats) is a "boon docking" camping area. By that I mean it's free, but there are no hook ups. It strictly dry camping in self contained rigs. Power is supplied by your own generator, solar panels, or wind turbines. You supply your own water, and bath room. The place is located about 5 miles south of Overton, Nevada. You just pull in, find an open area, and camp. That's it. It is seasonal which runs from October 1st to the end of June. The land, last I heard, was Bureau of Reclamation, and they send a guy by every so often to check on the various rigs being used out there. If your RV has any leaks, you will have to repair the problem, and clean up your mess. That, or leave. Folks in non self contained rigs will get a visit from the local police. Fire, Police, and Medical will respond as needed from Overton. I spent last winter there (7 months) just trying out my boon docking adventure. I had a good time, although it did get a bit unseasonably cold for a week or so. You can get cell service, wireless computer signals, sat TV, and depending on your antenna, some over the air channels. This is one of those places that unless you are with a group, minding your own business might come in handy. If your neighbors are close enough, they are friendly, and most folks watch over each other. Boating, fishing, and sight seeing are all with in 25 miles. Dump stations are available in Overton for a fee. Valley of Fire State Park is about 15 miles a way. For a$10/$8 daily entry fee, they offer showers, fresh water, and a dump station. A year pass is $75.00. When I was there there were about 65+/- rigs out there, and there was still a lot of room available. It's a pretty decent place for the price. We camped at Snow Bird Mesa in a Travel Trailer.
