A little history about Camp Potosi: Through the efforts of the First Methodist Church of Las Vegas, a lease was signed in 1958 for a BLM land patent agreement for a parcel of land to be used for recreational purposes by the Methodist Churches of Clark County, Nevada.
In 1959, a bunkhouse was purchased from the Union Pacific Railroad; it was dismantled and hauled up to Potosi and has served as the lodge and dining hall ever since then.
The first two sleeping cabins were funded and built by local UM churches were dedicated in 1979 and by 1984; other local churches built an additional 3 cabins, a bath house, and an outdoor chapel.
The camp site is 40 minutes drive from Las Vegas, going towards Pahrump. It is surrounded by desert landscape with Joshua cactuses. It has a breathtaking view of sunrises and sunsets.
When you visit Potosi you will come away feeling refreshed and renewed. When we are at the camp site, the city and it’s hustle will seem very far away! You are can sit on the porch or enjoy the hiking areas around the camp (no pool).
