Bureau of Land Management
We only stayed two nights and we did notice any law enforcement.
The road is passable by a standard passenger car, but I recommend a vehicle or camper with higher clearance if you want to venture further back or close to the mountains.
In fact, the dirt road goes all the way around the small mountain range, but some points are only accessible by 4×4.
There are enough spots close to the main roads (and cell signal) that going further back is not necessary.
Unless of course you prefer solitude.
Yes, but I would not take a 42′ high end Class A very far off the main road.
Most Class C’s, fifth wheels and travel trailers will be fine if you’re a skilled driver.
Almost any campervan will be fine and have ample camping spots.
You’ll find no shortage of turn around sites for larger RV’s.
The cell reception was exceptional. The southeast side of the mountain (where most of the spots are) is close to a highway cell tower.
We had super fast T-Mobile service. Our open signal app also showed a dominant presence of both Verizon and AT&T.
An elevated antenna will definitely work depending on your placement.
You’re fairly close to several mountain ranges inhibiting a view of the horizon to the west.
But there’s a solid view of the horizon to the east, north and south.
Your hot spot will work well enough to leave the Starlink in the rig if you like. Your data plan will dictate your decision.
There was only one other rig about 400 yards away, otherwise, we were alone.
We saw a lot of campervans venture further back, but didn’t see any evidence of them when we went out exploring.
Absolutely. At no point did we feel we were surrounded by shady or suspicious characters.
But, the winds that come from the west off the leeward side of the mountain can be viscous.
Plan accordingly and point the nose of your rig to the west, regardless of your solar setup.
Trust me, you’ll sleep better.
We did not encounter any pesky insects during this stay.
I explored some of the paths into the mountains and did not notice any wildlife at all.
It’s pretty desolate near the Salt Flats.
There are no close dump stations. We dumped in Elko, NV prior to arriving.
There appears to be a dump station east on 80 at a Sinclairs near Delle, UT, but we did not go that direction.
If your objective is to visit the Bonneville Salt Flats, this a great location with perfect proximity.
Make sure to point your nose to the west based on the wind.
There’s a little bit of hiking available and a few easy rock climbs, but other than that, it’s a safe place to sleep.
