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 an older RV site, but the owners/managers keep it very clean and tidy. The showers have good pressure and the water is nice and hot.
WiFi is available through a 3rd party and is quite acceptable for speed and price.
We have seen a lot of very large rigs go through here, and although there are not a lot of 'pull-through' sites, the owners/managers take great pains to ensure you are tucked in nicely, with good clearance on your slides, and even lining you up so your steps land on your concrete pad.
Just off the old Highway 58, don't be concerned about the traffic noise, you seldom here any as Highway 15 has taken the bulk of traffic in the area.
We will definitely stay here again if we pass through Barstow. - TheLilyPad

In spite of a slightly faded look, this is a really nice RV park! The bathrooms are immaculate and the property is very well maintained. Barstow has always been a camping problem for us, but no longer...
We camp in a small Airstream, but big rigs had no problem navigating the site. The pads are flat and gravelly.with a cement pad for tables, etc. The sites aren't wide, but there is room enough. We were next to a 40' RV that had no problem getting in and out. A charming place with very nice managers. - Joanna Koss

The people who run this park are friendly and helpful! This park is clean and well-maintained, in spite of its age. Sites are on gravel/dirt with a small concrete pad at the side, with a picnic table. Plenty of trees for shade. Cable is free, WiFi is available at an extra cost. They do not accept credit cards - cash or personal check only. Would definitely stay here again! - StevieB1
