“NPS Campground Perfection”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2017

This is a huge campground that is so full of lush vegetation between sites you would hardly notice the scale of the place during your stay. The spots are all pull thru style with different rows corresponding to different lengths. We were concerned about getting a spot since it is all first come first served but the ranger on duty say... more

“A great place to stay while visiting the park”

This is a pretty huge campground but it was nearly full the weekend we visited in February 2017. We called in the morning to ask if there would be space for us. It looks and feels new and clean, from the long concrete parking pads to the dump/fill station. Sites have lots of trees, cactus, and shrubs but it is the desert so there isn't... more

This national park is being rediscovered after years of partial closure, and the park staff are trying to catch up by providing a really excellent experience. Sites are concrete and mostly level, surrounded by natural desert plants. All the sites face south, which puts your entry door facing west, so it can get hot in the afternoon as... more
