"Good spot to stop to run errands in Parker"

We were driving from the Mojave Desert to the Sonoran Desert and needed a place in between to stop for a few days to run errands, and this fit the bill quite well for that. The turn into this area is more than 90 degrees if you are coming from... Read more

"Beautiful desert scenery, quite remote!"

This is a beautifully situated campground right in the heart of the Mojave Desert. We arrived from Death Valley to the north, and took the Cima Road exit 272 from I-15. What isn't immediately obvious is that this route to the campground... Read more

"Now with cell service!"

For those of us who like no reservations and first-come first-served campgrounds, the two best campground options in Death Valley are the Sunset Campground in Furnace Creek, or Stovepipe Wells Campground in Stovepipe Wells. Stovepipe Wells was... Read more

"Beautiful and convenient"

Of all the campgrounds in Joshua Tree National Park, the Belle Campground offers the best experience. The setting is classic Joshua Tree, with large granite boulders and the namesake tree surrounding the campsites. Compared to other Joshua Tree... Read more

"Best in Furnace Creek"

The Furnace Creek campground is objectively nicer (and even more objectively more expensive) than its paved parking lot brethren to the east (the Sunset campground). There are picnic tables, fire rings, and even a handful of full hookup sites... Read more

"Great scenery and perfect stop on the way to/from Tucson"

Anyone who has driven from Phoenix to Tucson will recognize the namesake peak of this park. Despite its proximity to the I-10 freeway (visible off in the distance), we found it to be quite peaceful and never found the road noise to be problematic... Read more

"Incredible location"

The location of Gilbert Ray Campground cannot be beat. It is located in the heart of Tucson Mountain Park, and minutes away from Saguaro National Park West and the Desert Museum garden/zoo (even if you don’t like captive animals, the gardens alone... Read more

"Favorite camping spot in Olympic National Park"

Olympic National Park is one of my favorite places, and this campground puts you right in the heart of the coastal and forest portions of the park. No other park in the United States has beaches that have the wild and remote character of those... Read more

"Strange and loud!"

The Salton Sea is strange. A gigantic briny accidentally created and quickly-disappearing lake in the middle of the desert that is as smelly as it is visible. The shore of the lake is literally littered with the remains of thousands of tilapia... Read more

"Decent unless busy"

No frills, no fire rings, no picnic tables, no hookups, but, and this is the most important part, no reservations! The Sunset campground (or, if you will, glorified parking lot) isn't nearly as nice as the Furnace Creek campground across the... Read more

Salton Sea, California - A Curious Place

A few days earlier, we left home for our second extended trip with our Airstream trailer.  Wanting to escape what felt like a colder than usual winter in Colorado, we decided to head toward southern Ca...
