Latest Check-Ins

Uh-freakin-mazing!! Even arriving after dark, we were able to get a great spot right down by the lapping waves! Can’t wait til morning!
Word to the wise: when we left Henneman Harbor my Apple Maps said it would take an hour to get here. It was like 4 miles!! Lol. It kept telling us to park on a turnout and park the car, so I think it was counting walking time..??? Weird. I mean it IS all washboard dirt road the whole way but not terrible at all... and we’ll worth it. 4 bars and 5G are great!

a nice location, very rough drive in... no need 4x4 but very bumpy road. nice spot on the water with good cell signal Verizon and TMobile.

Gravel access road with spots to pull off leading up to the water. Great place to stay for the night!

Lots of people. Beautiful views. Easier to find level with 4x4. Good reception with Verizon.

Not often you find a waterfront campsite for free! Quite a few people here during the day and overnight, but didn’t feel crowded. The road in is three miles off the highway and bumpy with several tight turns. We made it no problem in a 2WD Sprinter. Some people definitely come here to party, so don't expect total peace and quiet. Good cell service on ATT.

Very easy drive. No idea where there were 4x4 signs. Fills up fast, not that many spots if you want some distance from others. More people by lake. Check the wind before you go if tenting. Probably gets packed on weekends.

Watch out for the burros. They'll stalk you for food. Came right up to my tent and followed me when I was eating breakfast.

This is a great site! The water was clear and beautiful. Kids loved hiking around and finding Little Rock caves. There are a few short moderate trails around the area for off roading also.

Quiet camping in Kingman Wash at Lake Mead. You do not have a great open view like from the sites on the Nevada side. Maybe in summer it is nice to get some shade from the canyonwalls but in November the sun is gone at 3 pm. At our visit Kingman Wash road was very washboardy and rotted especially at the steeper parts.

stopped at second pull off on the left, not even close to the lake. several flat spots but road is rough. stayed for one night and close to highway. good T mobile

Excellent dispersed camping. Beautiful views of the lake. Love that you can pull right up to the lake if you’d like. Definitely recommend a tarp under your tent if tent camping. Lots of rocks.

Perfect view! Hiking swimming everything outdoors! Bathrooms! Pack in pack out though please and thank you!

Made it out here in a 2WD sprinter van and Honda Civic. Wouldn’t suggest if it’s been rainy anytime recently. Great spot near the lake for some off grid camping. Cell service was not great. Drive down to water is 30 mins or more on the bumpy road.

Beautiful. There is a fishing event going on at Lake Mead this weekend, so a lot of people going in and out. We took our 30 foot rig down this road, would not recommend more than 30 feet long. This is due to the trucks and the SUVs that don’t know how to pull out when vehicles go by and sharp cliffs.

A really nice spot to spend a few days and explore the lake or the wash. We stayed over the Easter long weekend, there were lots of day users and quite a few overnighters. It didn't get too loud at night. But people must not realise that their voice carries and bounces off the surrounding rocks in this area; you can hear everyone else talking quite clearly. It's a shame how much toilet paper is just left on the ground, considering there is a pit toilet near by.

About 20 other vehicles here, some playing loud music, some burning plastic. It's a really beautiful spot but I think I'd stay a little further away from the lake next time. Unless there is no one around then it would be amazing!

Beautiful. You can pull right up to the lake or hang further back in the rocks. Free camping for up to 14 days. A couple different roads on the way in take you to different spots...sounded like old mines. We kept on main road down to the lake. The wind can kick up a bit.

Might be hard to find a level spot, but a great location next to the lake.
