Overview

Hilltop Campground is set in the beautiful Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, just 40 miles from downtown Las Vegas. Visitors enjoy hiking, horseback riding 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.

More than 100 springs create the namesake for the mountain range, making it an ideal place to escape the heat of the city.

The campground is situated so campers are awarded sweeping views of the Mojave Desert below and Spring Mountains above. Stands of juniper, mountain mahogany and ponderosa pine forest the site and provide limited shade.

Recreation:

The North Loop-Mt. Charleston National Recreation Trail begins only 1/4-mile away. Robber's Roost Trailhead is nearby as well. The Spring Mountains Visitor Center is a short drive from the campground, offering guided hikes and educational programs.

Facilities:

The campground offers single, double and triple campsites, all with picnic tables, campfire rings and grills. Some sites have stairs from the parking spur to the campsite.

Flush toilets, showers, 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.
