Having gotten dinner we decided to gamble a little. I haven't been in a gambling establishment in a very long time. I lost a little but enjoyed the environment.

Reviewed By Mmarymomm - Pleasanton, California

Follow Gold Butte Rd. From Bunkerville/Mesquite area until the pavement ends and the road becomes dirt/loose gravel. Turn left (there is a sign) and there are a number of rock formations. These are filled with indents, some windows, and fins. There are pull outs at a few of the formations so you can park and explore.We were at Gold Butte NM for most of a day and saw no one else. There are no facilities and very few signs. Bring water. Do not attempt side roads unless you have an off-road vehicle. Even at the end of September it is still quite hot.

This art gallery is small but has some nice works of art. The pottery is reasonably priced. I saw a picture of a national park close by that I did not know existed and may visit. It's free to enter.

Little Finland

Reviewed By Mesquito - Mesquite

Everything about gold butte is majestic. Bring your camera, lots of water and protection from the sun. A four wheel drive vehicle is a good way to go but many of the sights can be accessed with two wheel drive. A little ground clearance is recommended.

Nevada Welcome Center

Reviewed By Tim O - Nashville, Tennessee

I walked in, hair a mess, clothes wrinkled, probably looking like I was coming out from under the nearby bridge. But, I was on a road trip and stopped here for information on Mesquite and surrounds. The attendant basically ignored me when I came in. A couple followed closely behind and she greeted them cheerfully and asked them to sign the guest book. I finally walked up to her and engaged her in a conversation, but she was not at all a good representative for Mesquite or Nevada. I was going to eat in town and go to the museum, but I dissed the area and headed down to Moapa where I had the best meal of my trip at the Muddy River Grill.
