Details on Ivanpah Dry Lake
Where to Stay: Primm Valley Resort has three Casinos. Whiskey Pete's is the least expensive although they all are very reasonable. The Primm Valley Casino reservation number is 800-386-7867. . Motor homes and camping trailers generally can get onto the lake with only moderate difficulty. Camping on the lake in a tent is do-able but dusty (and some years, really cold).
Getting to the site: Get off I-15 at Primm (about 40 miles southwest of Las Vegas, NV). Go NE toward the Primmadona, Turn right at the first light and drive along the edge of the resort (SW) past to the Lotto Store where the road turns SE. About 100 yards past the Lotto Store the road bends around to the left and there is a dirt road going through the fence on the right. Follow that dirt road 3+ miles along the east edge of the lake to camp (Camp is usually very close to N35 deg 33’, W115 deg, 23’ although it moves from time to time depending on conditions and the preferences of event organizers).
Notes: Do not take the dirt road that runs SE along the fence. There is often a wash just past the fence that may be difficult for some vehicles. A little shovel work goes a long way.
Access to the east side of the dry lake is between
the brown carsonite
signs. There are arrows on the carsonite signs to assist you. The ruts
are now outside of the area for driving, camping, staging and parking, in
hopes of allowing restoration of the surface. This will spread the driving
across a wider area, allowing the surface to recover more readily, as well
as the ruts. Do not drive on the lake. Observe the posted speed limit.
When passing cars be mindful of your dust trail.
