Boondocking in Overton, NV

Location: Overton Wildlife Management 

GPS: 36.51662, -114.42454

  
Overview: There are multiple boondocking locations in Overton. This campground allows visitors to stay for free for eight consecutive days. There are six, large pull through spaces, adequate for big rigs with multiple vehicles.

Date/Temperature: October 26-28, 80 high, 47 low

Noise: A cement yard is located across the street – constant truck traffic can be heard. Beeping, rumbling, and honking is common through all hours of the day and night. It becomes easy to ignore, but it also creeps into awareness occasionally. Neighbors can be heard in casual conversation if sitting outside (tall bushes hide them from sight).

Amenities: Each spot offers a covered picnic table area and fire pit. There are no bathrooms or showers. Your RV must be self-contained to camp here.

Wifi/Cell: Our AT&T signal is strong for calls, it’s data service bounces between “E” and “3G”. Our T-Mobile hotspot gets only “2G” service. We’ve been driving 2 miles to the local McDonalds for a blazing fast Wifi connection when needed.

Grocery/Errands: There is a full size grocery store and a dollar grocery within two miles of camp. The prices were fair. However, gasoline is rather pricey here ($2.85, compared to the national average of $2.24). Propane is also available nearby. 

Entertainment: The “Lost City” museum is a mile from camp. It has rebuilt ruins on display. The Valley of Fire State Park is a few miles away. There are multiple bars, including a 24 hour establishment that offers slots, and a sports bar with satellite TV. We haven’t been inside either location; enter at your own discretion.

Our Experience: We spent our time here enjoying nature, music, books, and podcasts.
