13 Reviews of Lovell Canyon Dispersed Camping (Spring Mountain)
Dry camping with great views

There are several spots along Lovell Canyon Rd that you can disperse camp at. If you want to get more than 30 feet off the road then you won't want to do it in an RV, the roads are rough. I came on a Sunday in October and there quite a few people camped along here so grab one of the first that you see. Use the satellite view in Google Maps to find some clearings in the brush. The main road is not very active at night so it's a pretty peaceful sleep.

Good in a pinch

We arrived late in the evening and needed a place to stop, so seeing the good reviews chose this area. It may be that all of the better spots were already taken. While secluded and quiet, we noticed quite a bit of trash, toilet paper and broken glass. We woke up to some great views!

Good desert camping.

There are several sites to camp through the valley area just off the main road. It’s gets busy on the weekends but if you look enough you can still find a site in a somewhat secluded area. Nice and quiet and easy to get to.

Gorgeous solitude and a clean site!

This area is very close to amazing red rock hiking. Once you turn onto the Lovell Canyon Road, you go up about 3 miles and turn left. I went through a few sites, went up to a small dirt road, turned right, went down a very, very narrow road to find this site. Gorgeous sunsets, beautiful sunrises, is very quiet and not many critters at all. The turn off into this camping area can be quite busy that’s why it’s best to continue on through those first 10 sites until you find a small dirt road and turn right to find more seclusion. You can hear people but you can’t see them.

Great hidden spot

Plenty of spots available down the path. The first 100 feet of the road is rough then it smooths out. Only went about .5 mile back and saw at least 10 spots to pick from. Super peaceful and quiet at night. Had plenty of AT&T signal to work remotely. No amenities or close by so be sure to come prepared. Pack out what you brought!

Dope little hidden gem

Super cool hidden gem in the desert that’s for sure. Summertime gets a little tooooo hot but it’s perfect any other time throughout the year. It’s all dispersed so find a spot you like and enjoy!! Free camping!!! Winner!!! Make sure you build a good fire ring and make sure to put your fire completely out. Safety first! It’s Always best to take care of Mother Nature. If you have a 4x4 you can get to a much secluded area. If you don’t which we don’t have a 4x4 but we can make it pretty cool places so we’re happy.

Great spot

This campground was very easy to find and well maintained. We stayed there on a day that was 111 degrees in Vegas but the night was perfect because it’s in the canyon. There were plenty of spots which made it enjoyable to not have any stress of finding a good spot. We could see some people far in the distance but it certainly wasn’t a bother. We loved this place and would go back!

My favorite boondocking site

Quiet, secluded spot between Las Vegas and Pahrump Nevada. First come, first served but it was very quiet when we were there. The Boondocking experience is my favorite part of camping/travelling and this was a great spot. Spent 2 weeks here and didn't come in contact with anybody! Other people were there but all well dispersed.

Gorgeous camping

Sites are spread out far enough apart that you’re not right on top of any other parties. We went out on a Friday and our first-pick site was taken but our second one was quite nice. We were up on a hill over looking the drive in and to the other side you could see far down into the valley. The sites are surrounded by various mountains and hills that are spectacular to look at and provide for a beautiful sunset view. No amenities so bring all you need and pack out everything. We picked up quite a bit of previous people’s trash so make sure you bring bags and keep the area clean. Can get windy there too so be prepared.

Close to Vegas but out of the Fray

Lots of great spots. There were plenty of people camping out here last night but we found a private turn off with epic Mountain View’s. Paved road with dirt road turn-offs. No facilities. Many spots had fire rings.
