Pocatello ORV Area

Wednesday, May 1, 2024

Other Names

Blackrock/Chinese Peak Trail, Caddy Canyon, Camelback Mountain

Last Known StatusOpen

This offroad area offers a wide variety of recreational activities for the outdoor enthusiast. Terrain consists of single track and ATV trails that wind through high desert vegetation.

Camping is permitted but there are no facilities. The main road entering the area is not maintained and has some potholes but eventually smooths out. There are two staging areas, the first one is larger and is better suited for large trailers and the second one is located about a half mile north which is smaller.

Note that this area is seasonal and is generally open from about mid April through mid November. Marinas and boat ramps can be found at the nearby American Falls Reservoir.
