Wildlife and landscape collide and paint a beautiful picture. There is a small creek with fish nearby and deer and coyote frequent the campgrounds. Nearby are the hot springs and petroglyphs at the nearby lake. This area however is pretty mosquito heavy and as it is a fairly long distance from any town come prepared as there is no nearby gas station/store/restaurants. Make sure to also watch out for rattlesnakes as we encountered one on our trip.
Went here attempting to outrun the smoke from forest fires. Hart Mountain is a gorgeous location and although didn’t see any antelope I was treated to solitude and scenery. Hot springs were great and met some wonderful people who were very welcoming and had been coming to the same area for years. 100% free and plenty of spaces to pull up and choose from across the preserve. No cell signal so plan accordingly.
