In the middle of what seems to be nowhere, lies this desert oasis. A couple miles down a dirt road, right off 373, you will find a wonderful visitors center. Behind it is one of three boardwalks throughout the area. Take a stroll on these...More

We visited here on a motorcycle trip to death Valley. Even though we’ve been to the national Park many times and we were actually unaware of this place. It’s a bit into Nevada but easy to get to. Don’t miss it.

Exceptional visitor center, well maintained landscape and wildlife. The most beautiful turquoise water in the lake(s) one does not expect in the middle of the desert. Go and visit the Pup Fish!

Staff were very helpful. We wanted to do some biking and they gave suggestions both at Ash Meadows and in the area. Neat "boiling" spring at an old homestead and unusual rock formation. Several springs with indigenous Pupfish, most of which you won't be able...More

We had some time to kill, so we visited. It was very nice and very informative. We walked on the boardwalk, saw some pup fish, and looked at the exhibits.

While volunteering in Death Valley for 3 months, I visited here at least 6 times. There is so much to see, between the historic relics and cabins, the spring fed pools full of pupfish, the ponds and reservoirs with many birds, and the Visitor Center...More

It's well worth spending at least half a day here. We were staying in Pahrump, so that we could visit Death Valley, and had not previously known about Ash Meadows, which is on the way from Pahrump to Death Valley. If you're in the area...More
