Camelback Mountain is accessible by taking Pocatello Crk Rd (in Pocatello) east until you see Park Rd just East of the KOA campground.  Park Rd connects Pocatello Crk Rd to West Buckskin Rd.  Go East on West Buckskin Rd.  Camelback is a BLM landlocked summit.  The only public access is on W. Buckskin Rd located at 42.86979  -112.35881 There is barely enough room for two cars on the side of the road across from  a private residence. There is a BLM pin but it is hard to is there though ...I found it..

You will need to bushwhack to the top of the ridge until you see a faded 4 wheeler trail.  Follow that east about a 1/4 of a mile. Camelback will be on your left throughout.  The double track will turn NE towards the summit and end.  Proceed to bushwhack up the first hump.  You will think that that is the summit but the actual summit is still due N.  The second summit is easier than the first. There is a Cairn at the summit to put up a mast. 

This is a strenous summit and at times can be windy...GL and 73's
