Hidden Gem

This small BLM trail head campground is a hidden gem. There are a few level areas, overall most spots you can level your rig with ease. Clean volt toilets and a couple of 55 gallon trash cans, no water or dump. We were here at the end of March, it was quite and only a few campers. We stayed a week.

Beautiful and peaceful spot

I stayed here in mid September on my way to Great Basin Natl Park and I couldn't have chosen a better spot. I put down my name in the registration book and drove up a mile or so up on the dirt road. I was all alone enjoying a quiet and peaceful night. There were a couple of people who camped in the area where the registration book and informational leaflets are, but I honestly would recommend going a further out if you want to enjoy the solitude.

Easy access

Easy access from highway. Several flat pull-through campsites. Clean restrooms, garbage cans, fire pits, tables. I stayed there on a Friday night in late March and was the only camper there.
