This is a real treat and change of pace when RVing and staying at Charleston Peak.
The Pahrump area offers a wide range of attractions for many interests. The town itself has golf, fine dining and fun of casinos. The allure of Las Vegas is just a short hour drive away. For those wishing to get away from all the lights and glitter the Pahrump area offers a wealth of outdoor recreation and sightseeing. The area offers an interesting mix of both mountains and desert with plenty of camping and hiking. Pahrump is so close to the California border that many California attractions need to be included in things to see and do around Pahrump. Death Valley National Park is very close by and should not be missed for it's amazing terrain and geology.Pahrump was originally inhabited by the Shoshone. It was discovered and slowly inhabited by American settlers in the late 19th century.They reportedly chose the name for the valley which Pahrump is named after the original indigenous name Pah-Rimpi, or "Water Rock," so named because of the abundant artesian wells in the valley. Because of these artesian wells, the new inhabitants of Pahrump Valley began a number of large ranch-style holdings, mostly over 1000 acres (4 km²) in size. On these ranches, alfalfa, cotton, and livestock were raised. Until the 1960s, Pahrump had no telephone service and there were no paved roads in or out of the Pahrump Valley. However, as Las Vegas grew, real estate speculation became more popular in the area, which led to increased interest in Pahrump. This led to the introduction of telephone service and the construction of a paved highway, from Las Vegas to Pahrump, during the late 1960s. Later, this road was extended from Pahrump northward to US 95, near Amargosa Valley. A second paved road was introduced that went from Pahrump to neighboring Shoshone, California, which provided a link to the Death Valley area, as well as a shorter route to those wishing to travel to Los Angeles or other areas in California. In 1974, Pahrump's first high school was constructed.
