Current Road Conditions

High clearance vehicles are required past Corn Creek. 4-wheel drive is recommended. Road conditions may have changed since your last visit. Please be cautious.

  • Mormon Well Road

    • Mormon Well Road is open from Corn Creek to US93. Desert Pass Campground is open and accessible from both directions.


    • As always, backcountry travel using high clearance vehicles is strongly recommended. 4-wheel drive may be required in Sawmill Canyon due to loose gravel conditions.

  • Alamo Road

    • Motorists wishing to drive on Alamo Road stand a very good chance of getting stuck at Desert Dry Lake. The dirt on the road has turned to powder, which is also referred to as “poof dirt.” The conditions are very hazardous, even for those familiar with driving in sandy conditions. In addition, cell and radio service are very limited, so stranded vehicles may not be able to call for help.
    • Additional information will be issued as conditions warrant.


    All other spur roads are OPEN. 

  • We appreciate your help!

    With such a large refuge, we can't drive every road every day.
