Eldorado Dry Lake Bed

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Eldorado Dry Lake Valley Area, Eldorado Valley, Black Mountain, Mccullogh Range, Black Hill, Mojave Desert

Last Known StatusOpen

This large flat dry lake offers only novice terrain and no services.

Strong winds are somewhat typical in this area, producing dirt devils that will relentlessly sand blast your day camp. Also beware the trash and debris such as broken glass and scrap metal that is scattered throughout some parts of this area.

There aren't many side trails or any single-track that is easy to find, but it is a great place to break in a motor or to take out the kids for a few hours. For more interesting terrain and better camping, we recommend nearby Nelson Hills, or Jean Roach Dry Lake Bed.
