This is a beautiful area. Paved road all the way. Great for hikes and big for bird watching. There is a string of campsites, most full on RVs but Idlewilde isn’t for RV’s it’s for tents. You can get your vehicle close to a few sites but others are a short carry away. Clean restroom and water. Wish I could have stayed longer. Desert museum close by and food stores. I got great free Wifi in the museum gift shop.
