2 Parks near Barstow, California
Jan 2016 - $6.00
We paid $3 with the Interagency pass. The road in seemed to have been fairly recently graded, but was still quite washboarded. We were the only ones in the campground when we were there. The sites are fairly large, but short. Large campers may have trouble fitting in to a spot. Each site has a covered picnic table and a fire pit. There is a children's play area. The toilets were very clean. Someone had failed to put a rock on the trash can lid, and a critter had gotten into the trash. We spent 20 minutes picking up as much as we could. After that, I started to see more bits of trash around the entire place. So the campground could have been tidier.... We had a beautiful sunrise in the morning! There are some nice washes and hills to explore. We did not get a chance to do the loop drive. If someone does it while camped here, please note how long it is, as I can't find that info anywhere. Great cell service. - ALbums

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

This is a great overnight stop. The owners/managers are extremely friendly and very helpful. They did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable including a map to local amenities and an easy way to get on I-40. The park was very quiet, as it's away from the freeway about a mile but a bit dusty....but then it's the desert. We would not hesitate to stay here again for an overnight stop. - Danni

Great place for an overnight stay. Staff is great! Even though we had enough room to stay, we unhooked and went into town, about 5 miles.
Don't follow your GPS. When you call to make your reservation they will tell you how to get there to avoid all the construction. - Nini03

Don't be fooled by the long term resident area to the right of the office. Transient sites are up the hill (sharp turn) to the left and are completely away from the semi-permanent portion. Our site was a paved, level pull-through with full hookups. Some shade trees, although we caught full afternoon sun (at 114 degrees) on the refrigerator side of the trailer. Water services had been recently replaced and pavement repairs were not complete, but that did not impede setting up.
We would stay here for an overnight again. - Alworth
