Camping is an excellent way to experience the refuge, and we offer several options at Desert NWR, all fee-free.
Desert Pass Campground, located on Mormon Well Road, has six primitive camp sites available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring, and tent pad, and vault toilets are available. Like most of the refuge, there is no water available, so please make sure to bring all you need.
Backcountry and car camping are also available throughout the refuge.
For more information, please see Camping Regulations.
