“Great free camping near Red Rocks and Vegas”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2018

Overall Rating

There are quite a few places to camp along Lovell Canyon Road. The main road is paved and goes for miles past where the pin point is on Campendium. There are a few spots before and after the pin and you can also turn right or left to find even more places to camp.

If you pull the location up on Google maps, you'll see something marked "Lovell Canyon Campground." There aren't any officially marked campsites there, but it is a good location for tent campers - we saw a few during our stay. I wouldn't try to bring an RV there, however, many of the other spots along Lovell Canyon are RV friendly. I would recommend scouting ahead before going down any of the dirt roads with your RV.

We ended up in a spot that accommodated three RV's comfortably and was relatively private. Only a few cars drove by including a game warden during our stay.

The location is close enough to Vegas where we were able to go into the city for dinner, groceries and laundry. We probably could have done all of those chores in nearby Pahrump, but we opted for Vegas.

There's a great hike at the end of Lovell Canyon Road where it splits off to Forest Trail 917.

There wasn't any Verizon service, so I used the "Wi-Fi Calling" setting on my iPhone and it worked great!

“A beautiful place to camp and escape the heat of Las Vegas”

Reviewed Apr 24, 2018

Overall Rating

A beautiful place to camp just 30 minutes from the Las Vegas area. Forest Rd 537F offers several camping sites, but some only accessible with tents. This road is very narrow, not accessible with large vehicles. Do not forget to bring the insect repellent.
