So i went down some random rabbit hole and ran into a couple of sources that mentioned that you could get free backcountry camping permits in the White Tanks. This has me a little intrigued as it would represent the shortest drive to a "winter" backpacking trip I could do by far, and something that might be a little kid friendly as well. I've gone out there for car camping a couple of times but when I did that, I took my mountain bike and putted around on that a bit, not with backpacking in mind. I'm curious, anyone gone out there and done any backcountry camping? Can you actually find some established sites out there? If so, any pointers where/mileage would be appreciated.
I went camping on the backside (western slope) of the White Tanks once then hiked up to the summit of Goldwater Peak. It's pretty rugged back there. From what I recall it's a mishmash of old 4x4 roads and game trails and our hiking was a total bushwhack up a drainage.
