Overview

Dolomite Campground is located in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, just 50 miles from downtown Las Vegas. Visitors enjoy hiking, mountain biking and scenic driving in this forested desert oasis.

Natural Features:

The Spring Mountains National Recreation Area is a beautiful island in the desert, brimming with breathtaking scenery and diverse flora and fauna. The Bristlecone pine, the world's oldest organism, and the rare Mount Charleston blue butterfly are both found within the Spring Mountains.

Over 100 springs create the namesake for the mountain range, making it the perfect place to escape the heat of the city.

The campground is situated in a scenic Ponderosa and white pine forest, which offers limited shade. The area affords breathtaking views of the surrounding Spring Mountains.

Recreation:

Hiking and mountain biking are popular activities on the 6.2-mile Bristlecone Trail. Upper and lower trailheads are located just above and below the campground. The 1.3-mile Sawmill Trail begins about four miles below the campground just off Highway 156.

Facilities:

This campground contains several single-family sites with picnic tables, grills and campfire rings. Flush toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. Firewood is available for purchase from the host. Roads and parking spurs are paved.

Nearby Attractions:

More than 60 miles of hiking and horseback riding trails crisscross the area; two trails allow mountain biking. Rock climbing, picnicking and scenic driving are popular activities.

The Spring Mountains Visitor Center in Kyle Canyon offers guided hikes and educational and evening programs. Interpretive displays provide information on local plants, animals and history.
