The Red Lake WSA encompasses 9,515 acres of BLM-administered land with no private or state inholdings. Rolling brush covered hills and stabilized dunes border the flat dry lake bed of Red Lake in the northern part of the area. The wide open character of the landscape gives a sense of immensity and isolation. This area is conducive to primitive and unconfined recreation. Raptors, wild horses, antelope, coyotes and a variety of small mammals challenge the wildlife photographer. Hiking, backpacking, camping, horseback riding, hunting and sightseeing for botanical, zoological, geological and archaeological features are other experiences available to the visitor. However, because the area mainly consists of a large sand dune, campsite and water are limited and thus limit the scope and quality of these opportunities. This is a fee-free site. Sections of the boundary road are ADA accessible.
