in the extreme northwest, the Virgin River Campground
is one of the most remote places on earth. In fact, you
have to travel through Utah to get there. The campground
is about 20 miles southwest of St. George, Utah or about
20 miles east of Mesquite, Nevada, depending on which direction
you are coming from. The campground sits just north of the
Virgin River, which divides the Paiute and Beaver Dam Wilderness
areas. A short walk will bring you to the river and a little
bit of fishing. There are wonderful hikes into each of the
wilderness areas and they are all noted on a trail map located
in the campground. Recommended hikes are the Black Rock
Mountain hike, Sullivan's Canyon hike and Mountain Sheep
From St. George, Utah travel 20 miles southwest
on Hwy 15 to the Campground / Rest Area exit.
Mesquite, Nevada, travel 20 miles east on Hwy 15 to the
Campground / Rest Area exit.
