“Sad.. Didn't know there was a $20 fee to get in the area.”

Overall Rating

The drive in is on washboard/loose gravel road, and the best spots are approximately 1 mile down the road. You can camp along the road itself, but y... more

“It’s quieter and less traffic than Government Wash.”

Reviewed Jan 20, 2016

Overall Rating

If you’re looking to get away while visiting Lake Mead National Recreation Area, then 8 Mile might be your place to stay (at least it was for us in December). There are a handful of reasons probably why there’s less traffic here: it’s a longer drive into the first boondocking site (2 miles, although there are passable “spots” beforehan... more
