There are a few campsites in close proximity to this camping spot which were all taken when we arrived around 4pm. We took our 22ft RV along the dirt road which was fine and camped close to an oak tree down the back which was on a dried up river bed.
If you are staying here, I would recommend checking the weather in neighboring counties for rain.

Drive-by review.

I was camping at the nearby Cieneguita Camping Area in the same Las Cienegas National Conservation Area when a BLM Ranger stopped by and gave me a map of the area. I noticed the Oak Tree Canyon camping area on said map but this area wasn’t on Campendium, so I went to investigate and take pictures.

My thoughts:

  • Road 6902 from the main 6901 road isn’t suitable for medium or large RVs. Not even sure I would take a small RV down it unless it was a high clearance vehicle. There are a couple of up-and-over hills on the way in that would bottom out most RVs.

  • The actual camp site in Oak Tree Canyon is a largish gravel area that is comprised of loose gravel that most RVs would get stuck in. However, it’s idea for tent camping and overland-type RVs.

  • A portion of the gravel camp area is under a large oak tree, which offers good shade.

  • The gravel camping area is right next to a wash so I wouldn’t want to be here during monsoon season and have a flash flood come through.

  • 1 bar of Verizon 1x cell service, which might be improved via a booster.

  • This would be a quiet place to tent camp if you don’t need cell service.
