Area Overview

Beatty is a very rural, small town of about 1000 residents. A step back in time with wild burros, alot of quiet, old west atmosphere. We are known as the gateway to Death Valley National Park.

With many unusual attractions, one in particular natural beauty occurs during the month of February with the arrival of Desert Wildflowers.Our Beatty Days Festival is the the last weekend in October which includes a Classic Car Show, Live Music , Great Music, ICS Sanctioned Chili Cook Off and many more events and food.

Things to Do

Recreation & Fitness













We are the Gateway to Death Valley where events take place year round, including golf. We are less than a 2 hour drive to Las Vegas, and 10 miles from Death valley National Park. Living cost here are way below average. If you love quiet and a real west feel, you will love it here in Beatty. Offroading ATV trails are also popular in our area.

Bailey’s Hot Springs, a former railroad depot (once known as Hicks Hot Springs), was built around 1905. Today there are three private bath houses available, seven days a week with temperatures ranging from 100 to 108 degrees. There is also a RV park on site with 14 RV spaces.

Beatty Mudmound--From a distance this fascinating outcropping of limestone, about 2 miles south and east of town is simply an out cropping of pale gray rock. But once up close and personal, the casual rock hound can find a wealth of excellently preserved fossil remains some 480 million years old: sponges, tiny crustaceans-related to barnacles, gastropods, and brachiopods as well as others.

Cultural Activities





BEATTY MUSEUM--The Beatty Museum and Historical Society that you will visit today is only the latest in what seems like an ever evolving effort to preserve the history of the town, the county, and the Bullfrog Mining District.

Marta Becket’s Amargosa Opera House is an adventure that encompasses dance, theater, and art in a way that you may see nowhere else in the world.

Goldwell Open Air Museum, in the middle of the desert, is on your way to visit the area’s premiere ghost town (Rhyolite), and suddenly off to the left you see a towering woman and a series of ghostly forms. This is the Goldwell Open Air Art Museum featuring the Painted Lady, a ghostly representation of the Last Supper, a ghostly bike rider, a “desert flower” and others.
