Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, Amargosa Valley Reviews - Write a Review

  • This place is amazing with a good days worth of hikes, walks and even a little kayaking. It's also so close to Las Vegas and Death Valley for an awesome day trip or an addition to your Death Valley vacation. A must see.

  • Most people just pass by this wonderful park on their way to "Death Valley". So they miss out on the beauty of this well maintained park. It has water, picnic areas, hiking, a board walk, and the "Devils Hole". By all means go to Death Valley check it out, and spend the $20 dollars on the entrance fee. But if you have the time to see this oasis in the middle of the desert, you will be rewarded with a nicer experience than Death Valley. And it's free.

  • Very nice and relaxing place. There's a boardwalk that you can take that is accessible for handicapped or young children who can't walk on a traditional trail. The natural spring pool is beautiful, giving you the urge to jump right in even though you can't. There's another place you are allowed to swim at though. Overall a great place to get back to nature and get away for a bit.

  • Beautiful springs and well crafted interactive trails (boardwalks). Roads are horrible washboards and there aren't any designated hiking trails.

  • State of the ary center with a very informative staff a must if visiting the death valley area.
