Patterson Pass BLM campground has twelve gravel sites ranging from smaller tent-sized to very large suitable for anything. There are also a few pull-thrus. All sites have a table and fire ring and some have a shade structure as well. Most sites are well spaced with some vegetation separating you from your neighbors. It’s at 6150 feet elevation so it’s a good choice if you are looking for cooler weather.

The only amenities are vault toilets (which are in surprisingly good condition) and trash cans. The location is one mile off of Route 93 so you can barely hear road noise even during the day.

There is signage on Route 93 indicating the turnoff, and the one mile section of dirt/gravel road between the main road and camp is well maintained.

This location is the north trailhead to the Silver State OHV trails. I have stayed at all of the SS Trails campgrounds and traveled most of the route, and in my opinion this is the best camp and also has the best section of trails. If you just want to camp, don’t let the potential OHVs scare you away. It’s usually very quiet and even the people riding are usually out for several hours so it’s not like noisy dusty vehicles are constantly coming and going through camp.

AT&T had a decent two bars of coverage without needing a booster.
