  • A gem in the desert. Just a short drive from Death Valley, but no one knows of this quiet oasis. Natural springs in the area have created a ecosphere that is surprising and enchanting. The water in the desert drew developers in the 1980s, but fortunately that did not materialize. The bureau of land management runs the place now and has been carefully restoring the conditions to allow Ash Meadow to forge its own ecosystem once again.
  • The kids and even the wife loved it. The visitors center was beautiful. The volunteers were friendly and even put on their video for us. There is so much to see we will be going back for more.
  • My 12 year old loved the boardwalk and.the pup fish! They also give out a booklet the kids can do.
  • We love going there. Nice and quiet really peaceful and shows part of Nevada some people don't know exists.
  • This is an amazing wildlife refuge and crucial habitat for unique creatures. The visitor center is interesting and beautifully constructed. They have really neat boardwalks out to crystal clear pools. The visitor center has plenty of parking and clean restrooms.
