“Awesomely quiet and scenic boondocking spot”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2018

Overall Rating

The minute I got here I fell in love with the scenery and the quiet, and that feeling hasn't abated in the least. The spot is about 1/4 mile off the paved road down a dirt track. My 35' motorhome made it just fine, though I did need to take it slow and easy. There's really only room for one rig here; perfect if you like peace and qu... more

“Isolated single RV camping area close to Mojave Desert hikes”

Reviewed Jan 13, 2018

Overall Rating

This area is 30 miles to the nearest overpriced gas station, so stock up with what you need before you come here. It is pretty easy access down a short 1/4 mile dirt road. There were some large rocks that were easy enough to avoid. This short road leads to a turn around area that circles a large fire pit in the middle. This is really a... more

“Desert solitude ”

Reviewed Nov 16, 2017

Overall Rating

Glad we found this little spot. It's only one site but a really beautiful site it is. The access road is a little tight and I got some "desert pinstriping" coming in but nothing too bad. Our 36ft DP fit fine.

“More traffic than expected.”

Reviewed Nov 05, 2017

Overall Rating

Camp is easy to access and large enough to turn a 32ft trailer around. Only about 600 ft from the paved road and there was plenty of traffic every day which was very noticeable. This place isn't a secret...we had people drive into our camp three times. Not many options out here outside the campgrounds which was only 1/3 full when we vi... more

If I could give this site more than 5 stars I would. We loved everything about this spot. From the 360-degree views, to the solitude, the amazing variety of interesting plants, the endless opportunities for exploring, the close proximity to a campground with water and a dump station, and the excellent price of FREE, it really doesn't g... more

Despite its proximity to both Las Vegas and Los Angeles, the Mojave National Preserve is a seldom visited area. In fact, most people have either never heard of it, or get it confused with the mo...
