Opportunities for camping are available through backpacking. Camping atop the North Sahwave Mountains is the best way to get a real sense of the vast and empty landscape in the remote part of Nevada.  Overnight backpacking trips would require bring your own water, as there are no dependable water source along the upper ridge of the range.  The designated dirt roads surrounding the North Sahwave Mountains provide access for dispersed or boondock vehicle camping and access climb into this wild area for day-trips.  The roads in this part of Nevada are all dirt and can quickly become dangerous and impassable in snowy or wet weather.  Be forewarned that the multitude of "roads" shown in atlases and on GPS navigational layers often do not exist, or are in such poor shape that they are impassible to most vehicles and/or are excessively abusive to 4x4 vehicles, drivers, and passengers.
