“Couldn’t get to site ”

Reviewed 3/18/2020

Overall Rating

I followed the advice and went to enter the campground from the North end to minimize dirt roads. But the recent rains left so much mud I wasn’t confident I could get through w/ AWD and a trailer. Wouldn’t recommend if it’s been raining in the area in the last day or two.

I did not stay at KCL CG as it was full, but instead boondocked at two different locations throughout the park. I’m kinda glad as I did pass by the CG for a lunch break and a lady there said it was quite noisy at night. So I would definitely avoid KCL if it’s not near empty.

It’s Superbloom season so the Carrizo Plains is absolutely stunning with blankets of yellow, orange and purples. Billions and billions of daisies abound. Our boondocking sites were pin quiet at night. The rangers at the Visitor Center will tell you where you can disperse camp.

Be aware that the Park is 100% pack-in and pack-out. Besides public restrooms at the Visitor Center, there are no trash cans anywhere. No water, no dump station, and only certain areas with cell service.

Highlights besides the flowers included seeing the San Andreas Fault. I’m already planning a fall trip here.

Boondock sites are off Elkhorn Road right along the San Andreas Fault line. There are many roads off Elkhorn heading into the hills. High clearance recommended but I was able to get to my spot on a RWD although I did not go far from the Wallace Creek Trailhead.
