Google and Apple Maps want you to enter from the south. However, the easiest way to enter is from the southwest corner behind Whiskey Pete’s and the Flying J. (Someone posted a picture of the entrance, picture 3).

I am a sign reader and rule follower. It was unclear exactly where you were allowed to camp.

The area as you enter the gate was not very level. We saw where the previous reviewer camped (in a gravel area where it looks like information was/is going to be posted).

We continued a bit further, made a left and went maybe a quarter mile to an unlocked, open gate that went out to the lakebed. (Picture 8). We camped there on the “shore” of the dry lakebed. There was a sign that did say authorized vehicles only. Remember I am a rule follower, but we figured if they did not want us out there the gate from the casino lot would have been locked as well as the lakebed gate.

We had a great, quiet night. After further research, I am pretty sure camping is only allowed on the lakebed during wind events by permit, oops! I am thinking that a sign stating that really should be posted. Plan B would have been the casino parking lots or joining the truckers at the Flying J.

Great spot within walking distance of Whiskey Pete's Casino. It is far enough from the highway and truck stops to be quiet. We parked in what was intended as an information kiosk but is not functional. Very level and easy in/out.
