CAMPGROUND NAME: Bootleg VISIT DATE: 09/05/2002 UPDATE DATE: 5/19/2013 STATE: California REGION: Intermountain RANGER DISTRICT: Bridgeport NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Walker RESERVATIONS: No DIRECTIONS: From Walker, CA, take US Rt. 395 south 7.7 miles to campground on right. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 6,600 ft. This campground, excellent for overnighters or long-term campers, is located on the west side of a valley carved by Walker River. The river is still actively widening the valley causing small landslides on the east wall that can be heard from campground. The sound of Walker River can also be heard from some camp sites. The campground is comprised of a spur leading to two loops in a stand of Jeffrey pine. Wild rose and Sagebrush make up the understory and widely spaced sites mean excellent privacy. The campground is rocky making pitching a tent challenging, but is compensated at some sites with tent pads. Without a "bad" camp site, this is a pretty campground that awaits discovery. Group tent sites are limited. Firewood is available for fee.

Some camp sites in Loop 4 have a spectacular view of valley and distant mountains. Loop 3 is tent only. Unless using the paved parking apron, pitching a tent on some sites in this loop will be a challenge. Loop 3 is not conducive to group camping either. All the trees are second growth as they were harvested in 1862/63 and used in the construction of houses and mines in Bodie, CA. Firewood is available for a fee.

GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 8,600 ft. The campground, one of six in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area and one of two in Lee Canyon, is composed of two loops connected by a road reaching up a draw. The first loop, at campground's entrance, is comprised of all double camp sites. While good for multiple tents, the parking aprons on this loop are the shortest in campground. The second loop, at top of campground, also has mostly short parking aprons. On the other hand, the road reaching up the draw has the longer parking aprons and all the pull-throughs. Because the road follows the draw's contour, the pull-throughs have a challenging downhill slope. Ponderosa pine, White fir, and other conifers dot the campground providing some shade but little privacy between camp sites. Most sites enjoy a view of Mummy Mountain - can you see the mummy? The camp site's surface is covered with rocks making pitching a tent at some sites a challenge. Each camp site has a fire ring and pedestal grille. Gas and limited groceries are available in Indian Springs, 13.2 miles north on US Rt. 95.
