Finding legal camping along Mineral Bottom Road can be confusing. The area has strict camping regulations and designated campsites to help preserve the delicate landscape. Halfway along this 1.2-mile out-and-back trail, there are five designated campsites. Each site is marked with a brown carsonite post. The sites are relatively small, with room for 1-2 vehicles with tents. The ground can be rocky and not very level. The trail to the sites is soft sand with deep ruts before turning to sandstone rocks near the campsites. The trail continues past the designated campsites and dead-ends at a non-descript point in the desert. You can walk a short distance from the campsites for views down into Mineral Canyon. The campsites cannot be reserved and are first come, first served. There are no services or water in these remote camp areas, and you must bring out all human waste. The trail has small rocky ledges and soft washouts that may require 4x4.
