“Air and road noise, broken glass and nails”

Overall Rating

The location is perfect for day trips to San Diego. Except for some crappy, litter- and shotgun cartridge-strewn campsites around Ocotillo, it is the furthest west you can boondock along Interstate 8. It is 97 miles to the San Diego waterfront. I recommend parking at the Navy Pier next to the USS Midway - it's easy to get to and $10 fo... more

“Convenient stop on the way to San Diego”

Reviewed May 27, 2015

Overall Rating

Weekdays Plaster City is the perfect place to stop and get some work done. There's nothing here, meaning no distractions. Military pilots from a nearby base seemed to enjoy buzzing our Airstream with their helicopters, and the drywall factory down the way (*the* Plaster City) revs up at night, so you get machine noises to lull you to s... more

“Good stop for provisioning and catching up on computer work”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2015

Overall Rating

This spot is in a pretty flat area overlooking a Gypsum plant on one side. Though not scenic, it was peaceful on the weekend evening and the one weekday we were there (we heard that the OHV's can be pretty active on weekends). A good place for catching up on computer work, as cell signal is quite strong. El Centro, about fifteen ... more

“Noisy on the weekends, quiet during the week.”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2015

Overall Rating

We camped at the Plaster City OHV Area for a week because we needed to be between San Diego and Yuma and wanted fast cell service, and for that, it was perfect. This relatively flat desert location sits next to a gypsum plant and isn't very scenic. Since it's an OHV area, there was a lot of noise on the weekend, however, during t... more
