“Terrible Campsite Management”

Reviewed May 30, 2019

Overall Rating

I paid for three days but on the second day a note from "NPS" was left on my trailer while I was out requiring me to relocate down to the first loop. I setup camp on the third loop intending to stay for the three days for which I paid. There was no indication that the back two loops were to close when I registered. I was not about to... more

“Simple quiet camping in the middle of nowhere”

Reviewed Feb 22, 2019

Overall Rating

Had a lovely (and cold) week of camping in the middle of the Mojave. Possibly one of the quietest places we've ever camped - you could hear a pin drop outside it was so quiet. It is however in the middle of nowhere, with lots of driving needed to really see anything, however there are a few things to see locally: - Mitchell Caverns - ... more

Reviewed Feb 06, 2019

Overall Rating

Nice level spot in the Mojave. Snow last night! Clean restroom, water at entrance, plenty of well-spaced spots. Close (walk from site) to 1-mile Rings Trail and 6-mile Barber Peak Trail. Dogs on leash OK on trails, but wouldn’t recommend on the Rings unless you have good way to hoist your pup up.

“Beautiful!”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2018

This is a lovely quiet campground with paved roads and gravel sites. Most of the sites were quite large and well spaced, but there is no tall vegetation between sites. Pit toilets were numerous and clean. Our site had a picnic table and fire ring/grill. Note the paved road ends at the campground and it is unpaved north of there. T... more

“Beautiful and Accessible”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a wonderful, well-maintained campground in beautiful Mojave National Preserve. The campground is easy to access from the south via paved roads (Essex & Black Canyon Roads). If coming from the north (as I did), I recommend you take the longer but paved route on Kelbaker. The washboard dirt roads are slower and will rattle your t... more

We stopped here on our way to the Grand Canyon. Its easy to find and the camp sites are spaced nicely for privacy. I would give this place 5 stars but I had a hard time sleeping through the wind. It was calm until appx 9pm as winds picked up. By midnight it was blowing at least 30 mph. We were in a cabover camper and rocked all n... more

Easy drive on paved roads into campground which was nicely packed dirt/gravel. Pit toilets were very clean and campsites are spacious. We camped in early March, 2017 and campground was not full. Very nice hikes from the campground, and long quiet hour (7 PM to 7 AM) meant little noise from generators! Would definitely come ba... more

“Great views, quiet and good hiking”

Reviewed Mar 14, 2017

We really enjoyed our time at the hole in the wall campground. The campground is actually larger than it first looks. For a quieter site, head towards the back north end of the campground. There are numerous pull through sites and some back-ins. At our site, we had a pull-through spot that open to vistas of the mountains. Each ... more
