Overall Rating

This is a great place to boondock specially if you have an off road vehicle to get around better on the BLM roads, pipelines and power line roads. You can turn of of SR127 where the large power lines cross the road and go up the road until you get to where there are a bunch of trees and park in the area and be sheltered from some of th... more

I found this particular site from here but I found the area exploring a year ago off of the highway from Baker California. I always wanted to stay in a dry lake bed and camped here a couple nights before our entry into Death Valley. We did not have an actual RV but rather, a Land Cruiser with a rooftop tent. The comments about the win... more

“Super crazy windy but we still loved it!”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here in late February 2019 and had just absolutely insane wind the entire time. The forecast we saw showed it only being 15mph (that was for the nearest town), so I don't know that you can find reliable info for it. Regardless we loved staying here because the area is so huge, the patterns in the dry crackled ground are aweso... more

“Beautiful mountain views and solitude on miles of smooth, level hard-packed lake bed. Oh, and it’s free!”

Reviewed May 01, 2018

Overall Rating

Thanks to other reviewers on Campendium we thoroughly enjoyed our stop at Sirlurian Dry Lake Bed. The area is huge and there are several access points off of Hwy 127. Just pick one that looks doable for your rig, drive out onto the hard, dry lake bed, position your coach for the best view, roll out the awning, set up a chair, tip back ... more

“Remote, quiet camping.”

Reviewed Jan 05, 2018

Overall Rating

The GPS coordinates on Campendium are near the road, and anything on the east side of the road is where you can camp. When we arrived it wasn't clear how to access the spot, so I texted friends of ours who were already here asking where the road was. They replied "make your own!" So we tentatively turned off of Death Valley Road onto t... more

“Privacy and beauty”

Reviewed Mar 05, 2017

Overall Rating

This place hit on all the things we love in a campsite: plenty of privacy, access to hiking/exploring, and free! We were the only people out here the entire 3 day weekend that we stayed. We were concerned that there might be ATVers on the dry lake bed on the weekend but we never saw another soul. (It probably helped that there are sand... more

“Nice place to spend a night or two on the way to or from Death Valley”

Reviewed Aug 01, 2016

Overall Rating

We were looking for a place to spend the night on the way to Death Valley from Desert Hot Springs and this was perfect. Free camping on BLM land, flat, hard surface, but dusty. There are a few different roads you can turn off to get to the lake so we just pulled over and walked around to scope it out first. We had some highway noise bu... more
