“Nice spot”

Reviewed Mar 04, 2019

Overall Rating

This was a nice, free spot to camp and close to Caliente Ridge for hiking the next day. I got delayed and was nervous about arriving after dark, but found the campground easily.

Coming from the North, Soda Lake Road is paved until the turnoff. Then it’s five miles on bumpy but okay dirt road. I made is easily in low clearance sedan.

Each site had a sheltered picnic table and fire ring as well as plenty of parking. There are two pit toilets. There is a faucet but the water was not turned on in early March.

“Remote and free camping”

Reviewed Apr 20, 2017

Overall Rating

We've been to Selby Campground once before but decided to make the trek again to see the super bloom. Selby is located in Hills above the Carrizo Plain. The campground is at the end of a 5 mile washboard dirt road. Aside from being bumpy, the road is in good condition. Selby is a very rustic campground with pit toilets. There is water available though. The camp ground is first come/first served. The bloom made the campground pretty crowded but crowded is relative. At the busiest the campground still only had maybe 100 people there. Trailers, RVs and tents found spaces wherever they could. We had no trouble finding a spot for our 25ft trailer.
Our last visit to Selby was in May of 2016. We saw only one other car in 12hrs and the campground was empty.
Would definitely recommend a visit but be sure to read up about the Carrizo Plain and be prepared.
