From OHV's, fishing, horse back riding and hiking, the Sacramento Pass area is set up for recreationalists from all backgrounds. This newly developed campground has immediate access to OHV and non-motorized trails. If these trails just aren't doing it for you anymore, the Great Basin National Park is just minutes way!
If you are wanting to fish, please visit NDOW's website to acquire a permit beforehand. Horse camping is available here with an established corral for your horses. The camping area is equipped with shade structures, restrooms, picnic tables and grills. Potable water is not available. Each site is only available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Day trip options include NF 453 south of Sacramento Pass in Spring Valley. Staging options exist in a large gravel parking area off Shoshone Rd. This rocky trail climbs to Mt Washington in Great Basin National Park. Expect steep switchbacks and loose rock but the first 4.5 miles are passable in a Full size 4x4. After the old Mining area, continue southeast where the trail width grows limited. Please be aware that OHV use is not permitted within the National Park boundary, please keep riding restricted to BLM designated roads only.
Camping is available at the Sacramento Pass Campground managed by the BLM. The shared-use site includes limited amenities including pit toilets, shade structures, and equestrian area.
