I've looked at few online maps of Clark County but I can't find one that displays the County borders. Online facts indicates Clark County goes South to the Colorado river by Laughlin. It goes South East to the Colorado river by Hoover Dam. Does anybody have a good point of reference for Clark County's East, North and West borders? Maybe by city points. I already found out it's square miles is 8,091 and I thought Orange County, CA was big at 947 square miles.

Did you Google Nevada counties? Google


You could also pick up a Nevada Road Atlas. There are also topo maps of the state and counties at any book store. REI is a good source for those too.

I'll see if I could locate a Nevada road atlas in my state. Mschu's map is what I find on the net. I'm looking for a more detailed map, so I can see a major road or city for the boundaries. I may have to work in the County, so I'm trying to get an idea how far the drive is to cover the County. Thanks.

Obviously the east border is the state line, as is part of the west border. The north border is something not visible as you are driving, like a road. Given the number of square miles, you can tell it's large in terms of area-- unless you are going to work for a county department that requires you to "cover" the county, like the road/highway dept, the size will not matter as much.

Border to the north is mostly on Test Site ground. Come to think of it aside from the Cali Border, the mountains going into St George (that's the East border for me) and the Colorado (East) I don't know where the other borders are.

I dont really care, but that's a different story.

Yep. It would be work for the County which would require bieng assigned to certain areas of the County. I do see a city North of Vegas on 95 which is way up there! Anyway, I was just trying to get a general idea of driving distance to service calls. Thanks for input.

This is a reasonably nice and interactive map of Clark County...

Clark County - Google Maps

Note that Clark County is both the underlying county for the whole area and the operating body for a municipality in part of the county.
