  • Like being on another planet. This place is amazing and out of the way enough to not have to fight off any crowds. From the bleach white alkali flats to the crystal clear waters of the many springs, Ash Meadows is a true oasis in the middle of nowhere. Take the time to visit the Visitor Center and take a look at the history of this area. It is quite fascinating. The history of Jack Longstreet is also pretty incredible as well. Try to identify the many endemic species of plants and animals in every direction. Be prepared because it is remote and can get very hot.
  • Beautiful place, very accessible for anyone. Dogs are welcome outside but not in the beautiful building. They do have some covered parking, so if it isn't too hot you could leave your dog in your car for a short time. We left the windows way down, nice breeze, others did the same so dogs were fine. The people working at the park are extremely nice. We want to go back next year and visit areas that we missed this year.
