“A diamond in the rough”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2019

Overall Rating

This is part of the BLM land network. The road in is a little rough and may take some patience but it is worth it. The road is partly paved but has some real rough spots, sticking around 25 mph will help navigate some of the rough areas without being surprised. The stars at night are beautiful. There are lots of rocks for the kids to climb on and trails that lead to a giant sink hole and abandoned ranches. Lots of areas to go ATVing. There were port-a-potties nearby but that is it for amenities. It’s off the beaten path so you’ll have more privacy than most areas near Las Vegas...give it a try, you’ll love it.

“Gorgeous scenery, excellent price! ”

Reviewed Dec 13, 2016

Overall Rating

Whitney Pocket is an excellent example of the best that BLM has to offer in the high desert. The road in is a little rough - very rough in spots - but it's totally worth it. We drove it in our 42' rig with a tow'd attached and we got rattled around quite a bit but it's very doable.

Fair warning: The road shows at least a dozen areas of complete washouts from monsoonal rain, so keep an eye on the weather... any hint of rain and I would strongly consider not going if we weren't already there, or leaving early if we were.

There are a few spots along Gold Butte Road that are large and flat enough for rigs our size... smaller rigs would have even more options. The views are spectacular, the topography is breathtaking and it's FREE!

We had zero phone coverage or data access, but surprisingly we had excellent TV antenna reception.
