“Beautiful!”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2018

Overall Rating

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

Overall Rating

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

This is a national park campground in the Mojave National Preserve. It’s a small campground with no hookups and a dump station. The sites are nicely spaced and level with fire pits and picnic tables. There are clean pit toilets and water faucets scattered throughout the campground. The setting is gorgeous. A dramatic rock formatio... more

“Beautiful desert scenery, quite remote!”

Reviewed Mar 01, 2017

This is a beautifully situated campground right in the heart of the Mojave Desert. We arrived from Death Valley to the north, and took the Cima Road exit 272 from I-15. What isn't immediately obvious is that this route to the campground requires driving on about 6-7 miles of a mostly good dirt roads (part of Cedar Canyon road and th... more

We really enjoyed our stay here and I can only echo the other positive reviews here. We arrived on a holiday and Friday (Veteran's day) so it was a little crowded but cleared out nicely on Sunday. Loved the hiking.

$12/night for some beautiful desert camping. Includes water and trash within walking distance of every site. Dump station at the end of the loop. We camped here in late November. The weather was delightful, but we got a storm that rolled through one night and brought some 40mph winds and a dusting of snow. Despite that, the rest of ... more

“Fantastic, peaceful, quite and magical campground in the middle of the Mojave.”

Reviewed Nov 22, 2015

We stayed at this beautiful campground for 21 days. It's in the middle of the Mojave, quiet and doesn't get a lot of traffic. If you are an astronomy buff, this is an excellent campground for nighttime sky viewing. There are handpumps with potable water throughout the campground, trash bins, a dump station and pit toilets. There are... more
