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 park is a gem because of great service and the cleanest restrooms and showers you'll find anywhere.
A first impression upon arrival is that it is an old a tired park. Older yes, tired not. As others have said the greeting upon arrival is unexcelled and you only go back to the office and pay when you are satisfied with your spot and everything is hooked up.
While in an older building, the showers and restrooms are spotless.
Our pad was level gravel with nice shade trees.
A very good choice in Barstow. - Ratch

This is not the most scenic place, but what is in Barstow. It's perfect for an overnight stay; close to the highway and old part of town's restaurants and services. The staff is the best. They took me for a ride in the golf cart and let me choose a site and then followed to help me park. I had trouble hooking up the cable tv, so he lent me his cable and then programmed my tv to get all the channels. Can't beat that service. Will definitely stop on our return trip. - Jimmytheshoe

We stayed at Shady Lane passing through both ways. There are not many choices for full hook up in a quiet neighborhood. The neighborhood has seen better times.
The office was very accommodating by escorting us to our site,this is a cash only place. They even give you directions to get back on I40 the easy way. They do get rather cranky if you don't call and let them know if you are running behind on your arrival time.This is an older property, but the bathrooms were clean and they have someone raking the driveways and sites every day. - Kwanyen
