    EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

    Nelson, NV

    Pros: It' a neat place to visit without driving far from Las Vegas or Boulder City...

    Cons: No place to buy food or drinks, but if you know you are going there, you can bring a picnic lunch and hike to the Colorado River

    This is a good place to bring a camping chair, book and read and picnic...
