“Quiet and Isolated”

Reviewed Apr 07, 2018

Overall Rating

Fairly remote campground but the road is in good shape for the 11 mile drive from I-8. The campground is well-maintained and has really large sites, completely suitable for larger rigs. Most of the sites are pull-through, pretty level, with fire pits and cement picnic tables. There isn’t much vegetation so don’t expect any shade. Pi... more

“Quiet Solitude!”

Reviewed Mar 05, 2018

Overall Rating

Large open sites. Ample distance between sites but little vegetation. Just quiet, wind & flies! Main negative is the flies.

“Quiet and restful”

Reviewed Feb 28, 2018

Overall Rating

The sites here are huge and mostly well separated although there’s no vegetation for visual privacy. We enjoyed relaxing away from the freeway and train tracks. Verizon Service was blazing fast. Easy access from I-8 with just a short drive on dirt. We did have a dust devil tear through the campground and were chewing sand for a few... more

“Loved it... very remote... great cell service...”

Reviewed Aug 23, 2017

Overall Rating

This is the type of place we love. Remote. Quiet. Beautiful in it's own desert-y way. No water. There are outhouses. GREAT Verizon service which is important to me since I need it for work.

It is far away from everything, so stock up first.

“Come for the petroglyphs, stay for the site.”

Reviewed Feb 14, 2017

Overall Rating

You come here to see the petroglyphs. There are very many in this pile of rocks. It's very cool. The sites are huge. There are no real amenities, no electricity, no water. There is a dumpster, and pit toilets. No shade. There IS cell service, if you are into that kind of thing. It's better than a WalMart parking lot, but not as luxuri... more

“Ok for a night or two”

Reviewed Jan 08, 2016

Overall Rating

We thought this would be more of a remote boondock experience, but it's more like a campground without utilities wrapped around a pile of rocks behind a fence. The petroglyphs were pretty cool, but would have made more of a "stop along the road" then a destination. You can peruse them in about 20 minutes. There was some other d... more

We loved this place and would definitley go back again. Its quiet, scenic, there are great hikes and cool petroglyphs! Its in the middle of nowhere, so I dont think we had any cell service -- but its worth it.
