Picturesque campground in a canyon with a nice 2-mile canyon trail to enjoy. Had the place almost to myself except on the weekend when there were quite a few day-use hikers and picnickers. There are several water faucets but there was no water while I was there. No dump but there were garbage cans placed near every site. Each site has a picnic table with a ramada and a fire grill. Was able to get Verizon voice/data signal only with my antenna booster. The dirt roads in are washboard-y but don't demand high clearance. IMHO, this campground is a real gem, with widely-spaced sites and great scenery. - mockturtle
Owl Canyon BLM campground, north of Barstow, CA. Widely separated, and mostly level, dirt campsites in a pretty little canyon. Rate listed was for a senior discount. No hookups, but trash receptacles, a couple of unthreaded water spigots, and several clean pit toilets. Big rig accessible, but the dirt road leading to the campground is very washboarded, so it is slow going. Beautiful view of the mountain range to the south at sunset. Extremely quiet and peaceful area. Nice. - HercMaster
The rate reflects use of a Senior Pass at this BLM campground. We loved the beautiful scenery, great hikes, and solitude with only us and the campground host using the campground during most of our week-long stay here. We would have loved to stay longer, but it became too cold and windy (explaining why we were the only ones crazy enough to be there). Even with higher occupation, though, this would still be a great place to stay and you can't beat the price. - BJ Snowbird
Small park that was well-kept, nicely laid out, roads were easily navigable. Nice greenery separated our site on both sides, long concrete patio on one side. Utility connections were handy, water pressure was good, Verizon signal was very good. Wifi is managed by an external company and costs extra per day. Office and service staff was helpful. - jbrucemagon
The owner is a bit quirky, but very nice and helpful. There is not much in the way of places to stop in this area, and this is likely the better choice to overnight.
That being said, especially considering the price, this place is a bit run down. There are really no amenities to speak of. It is all gravel, well maintained, but spots are kind of hap-hazard and small. The bathrooms were clean, but need a major face lift. Utility hookups work find, but water pressure was not the best. - Vegas Trippers
An out-of-way place short distance off interstate. Gravel with concrete patio. Would be trouble for rigs over 32 esp. if towing. Good for overnight stopping place. Need advance res. because not much else around. - 1947red
