Try to visit at "off peak times." A parking lot accommodating 8 cars is located adjacent to Dugway Road near the southern property line. This lot is often full on warm summer days. Cars can also park along portions of Dugway Road south of the parking lot where the road shoulder is wide enough to enable cars to PULL ENTIRELY OFF of the travelled portion of the road. North of the parking lot the shoulder narrows and there is little to no parking along the road.
