2 Reviews of Tonopah, NV Dispersed Camping
Vast views in the wind

We enjoyed this easy to find space for an overnight stop, thanks to previous review. Definitely take the middle road choice when starting out at the BLM office. Stop at the crest of the hill. It goes downhill from there with no turn around for a big trailer and is softer sand. We did arrive in the heat, kept screened windows open through the night, and awoke to a sand filled living space and cooler temps. Verizon service has 4 bars. A couple of quads rode past in the evening, and another overnighter stopped in next to us for the night.

Level Camping on a Hill Overlooking Vast Mountain Range

FREE and easy to get in and out.  Plus it was level.  This dispersed area is right off the 95 highway right as you come in to town or leave it based on the direction of travel.  You park up on a hill that overlooks a vast mountain range.  The scenery is just gorgeous and the sunsets are beautiful.  We were the only ones parked on the hill most of the time but a few overnighters did stop in.  We stayed on the hill for a week.  It's close to the town of Tonopah which is quaint and includes all the amenities you need.  We dumped our trash at the local Texaco station dumpster.  

You enter this location right before the BLM office.  Entry road is across from the Texaco station.  There are three paths, take the middle or the left.  The one on the right has a large dip you'll want to avoid.
