Shoshone Dispersed Camping, California

We found a very nice area for dispersed camping. We saw very few campers in this spacious area that offered lots of level space to camp.

Boondocking on BLM land near Shoshone.

When passing through Shoshone, the Crowbar Cafe & Saloon is a good place to stop for a meal. And perhaps the only place.

We stumbled across this small brewery in Tecopa, CA. Unfortunately, we stopped on a day that they were brewing, so we couldn't sample their brews.

Nestled in the rugged terrain of California's Mojave Desert lies the small town of Shoshone, which serves as a gateway to some of the best dispersed camping opportunities in the region. Surrounded by vast swaths of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land, the Shoshone area offers campers a chance to immerse themselves in a primitive, off-the-grid experience.

One of the prime dispersed camping destinations near Shoshone is the Furnace Creek Road area. This remote stretch of dirt road provides level campsites with ample privacy, allowing campers to truly disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. "Great place to boondock. Level sites with privacy," notes one Campendium reviewer. [1] The wind can be a factor, so some campers opt to set up a bit further from the main road for a more sheltered experience.

Beyond Furnace Creek Road, the Shoshone region is dotted with numerous other dispersed camping opportunities on BLM land. "Enjoy dispersed camping on government land and leave no trace. Pack in and pack out. No (or limited) services at this camping area. Permit may be required," advises The Dyrt. [2] These remote campsites offer a chance to truly experience the rugged beauty of the Mojave, with stunning vistas and a sense of solitude that can be hard to find elsewhere.

Whether you're looking for a primitive, off-the-grid adventure or a more structured camping experience, the Shoshone area has something to offer. With its vast BLM lands, stunning natural beauty, and proximity to the Shoshone National Forest, this region is a true gem for outdoor enthusiasts seeking a serene and secluded getaway. [2][3]
