Campground is clean with nice views of sagebrush around sites and canyon cliffs in the distance. Sites have a picnic table and fire ring, and most have a solid awning over the table, presumably for shade.

  Since we didn’t leave Ridgecrest until 11 yesterday, and didn’t want to drive 250 miles to Las Vegas, I found a BLM campground, Afton Canyon, about 37 miles northeast of Barstow, just about halfway...
