I-15, the major route between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, extends along the northern boundary of the preserve. I-40, the major route between Southern California and Arizona, is the southern access route.

Common entry points include Kelbaker Road, which crosses the preserve from Baker to Kelso. There are Kelbaker Road exits from both I-15 and I-40. The Essex Road exit from I-40, 25 miles east of Kelbaker Road, is the access point for Providence Mountains State Recreation Area (Mitchell Caverns) and two other campgrounds. The Cima Road exit from I-15 near Mountain Pass leads into the center of the preserve.

The town of Nipton, technically outside preserve boundaries, is a common destination for Mojave travelers. Take Nipton Road from I-15, within sight of the Nevada border.

The nearest airport is Las Vegas's McCarran International.
