“Great stop for migrating snowbirds”

Reviewed Mar 19, 2018

Overall Rating

We have stayed on Snowbird Mesa, or Poverty Flats as it is also known on a few occasions. We prefer going to the higher plateau, firstly because there are less RVs close by and secondly, the views are superb from up high. From the highway coming out of Overton, there is a steep incline to negotiate with two short roads to choose from... more

“It's the nicest in spring”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Besides the two large areas on the east side of the highway, there's a smaller area on the west side, near the power switching station.

The area can look hellishly desolate summer through winter, but the vegetation on the slopes and the farming area in the valley green up in spring.

“Basic Gravel Area, Great Desert Views”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2016

Overall Rating

There are two parts to the mesa, the part with the view over the cliff and the part further back. The road up to the view area is a little rough, the other part is right off the road and appears to be smooth, I arrived in the dark and took the road more roughed. Very quiet and being up higher than the surrounding area catches whatever ... more

“Plenty to choose from.”

Reviewed Mar 17, 2016

Overall Rating

If you want nice views of the badlands, park on the north/west side of the road, being careful of the unprotected cliff edge. There is less room here and you get road noise, but I enjoy the view. There is a ton more room on the other side and you can get much farther from the road and others if you desire. Internet is good here, Verizo... more

“Plenty of space. Alone with others”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2016

Overall Rating

Poverty flats / Snowbird mesa seems to allow long term boondocking. Please keep it clean or we will undoubtedly lose this wonderful spot. You will find others out here but you can still find your own private spot. I found a spot on the mesa edge at: 36.485375, -114.446117. I had a great view to the north off the side of the mesa... more

“Great”

Reviewed Feb 03, 2015

Overall Rating

Easy access off Northshore Highway, south of Overton, coming from Hoover Dam, Boulder City, or Las Vegas. Gravel but not huge or rough. 4G Verizon signal. North "edge" can view nighttime lights in Overton. Less than 2 miles from Valley of Fire SP. One nice grocery store in Overton, plus easy access to I-15. Quiet even with highway near.
