The road into this Tamarack Beach BLM Boondocking is paved. Tamarack Beach is open Year Round. You may stay 14 Days at Tamarack Beach. Three separate campgrounds surround Tamarack Beach on the western edge of Walker Lake. The Bureau of Land Management manages a dispersed campground that is extremely bare-bones in terms of facilities. There is only one vault toilet and one trashcan in this campground, although the solitary crumbling asphalt road in suggests it may have been more established in the past. Aside from that, there are no amenities such as fire rings, benches, shade, running water, or electricity.
Campground ruins on the Walker Lake shore. Garbage can and outhouses. There are a few concrete pads for smaller vehicles to park on. There are two sizable, paved pull-thrus available. There are a few off-road locations near the water, but no actual lakefront sites. Although Highway 95 is nearby, it is calm late at night.
This little dispersed camping location is great for passenger automobiles because there are no huge turnarounds. A group can set up camp in one single brush pile. In addition to this, campers can park their vehicles anywhere along the dirt and asphalt roads. Vehicle access to the lake has been restricted as a result of falling lake levels.
Sportsmen's Beach Day Use Area and Campground is located 3 miles south on Highway 95, and the cost is $4 per night or $22 per week, payable at the campground's pay station. Only 14 days of camping are allowed. Picnic tables and a boat ramp can be found at Sportsman's Beach's day use area, and nearby Twenty Mile Beach has more tent sites.
