Great Basin National Park
Great Basin National Park is located in eastern Nevada along the Utah border. For many when we think of Nevada we think of open deserts, the scorching heat and the neon lights of Las Vegas. Little did we know that 250 miles north of Las Vegas lies permanent snow fields and even a glacier on Wheeler Peak. Make sure you visit Lehman Caves, a unique cavern system with many beautiful limestone formations.
Gold Butte National Monument
Located about 100 miles east of Las Vegas is Gold Butte National Monument. This little park is only about 300,000 acres but contains so many fascinating places. While most of the rocks are grey limestone and granite there are many outcroppings of red, yellow and orange Aztec sandstone that have been exposed over the years. Look closely and you will find one of many petroglyphs that were carved into the sandstone thousands of years ago. Take a walk through the abandoned mines and ghost towns of Gold Butte, which was home to many gold and silver mines of the early 20th century. Just another great thing to do in Nevada National Parks.
Lake Mead National Recreation Area
Lake Mead National Recreation Area began with the completion of the Hoover Dam. The huge artificial lake is responsible for much of the tourism in the area. People come for camping, boating, fishing, swimming and some camping. Because of the warm temperatures these activities are year round.
There is so much to do in Nevada that has nothing to do with gambling. Rent an RV from USA RV Rentals and take an adventure through Nevada National Parks.
