Gold Butte National Monument Campsites Overview
Hiking Around Las Vegas, Gold Butte National Monument

There are no developed campgrounds in Gold Butte National Monument, and in fact no facilities of any kind, but primitive camping is legal everywhere along existing roads and trails. I tend to stop and camp where I am when the sun goes down (including wide spots on dirt roads) but there are a fair number of traditional campsites scattered throughout Gold Butte National Monument. Here I provide information on the location and condition of several such traditional sites. There is little wood in the desert, so be sure to bring firewood from home.
