“Peaceful desert camping”

It’s a clean well kept campground with easy access for all styles of camping or RVs. The host is very accommodating and let us choose our site before paying. Plenty of water spigots, each site has a picnic table and fire ring, the bathrooms are clean with showers. It does not seem to be as popular as some other camping spots in the area. There are not many hiking trails nearby, so this campground would be good as a base camp to explore the area with your car or as a spot to relax and take in the desert. Some sites are fairly close to the road.

“Quiet, peaceful, not crowded.”

If you want the stars at night, amazing views of the Lagunas, this is the place to go. Unlike the other reviewer, I actually stay at the park and give an accurate review. The campground is rarely crowded. There are hiking trails from the park, and close to other canyons, trails, and mud caves. Agua Caliente County Park is 4 miles down the road. Pay the day use fee there and have use of the pools and hot spring fed spa, then come back to the serenity of Vallecito. Excellent cell coverage if you have Verizon or ATT. Best time to visit is Thanksgiving-Easter. Annoying black flys in the Fall, nothing seems to discourage them. Winds can be strong, but only when a front is moving through the county. Bring drinking water. Water there is from a well, no filter and no chlorination. OK to wash things, and is safe to drink, as it’s tested regularly, but is very high in minerals. Bring your telescope and camera.
