Beautiful dry camping spot, EXCEPT... the road in. Washboarding and steepness are the two main problems, but rocks and ruts are also numerous. I had been here before in a car and had totally forgotten about that. So, not knowing any better, I headed down in my 33" Class A towing a car. There's no place to turn around anyway. I made it safely, and things actually didn't get smashed up too badly. Perhaps I should wait until I leave safely before posting this review. There are two very steep uphill sections awaiting. But, the campsites are nice, level, and fairly well-spaced. There seem to be about ten of them, all tent and van campers. Plenty of open sites on a weekday in April, but the weather is starting to get hot. If you have a Jeep or 4x4 truck, you should be able to ford the river just past the campground, and there seem to be more places to explore the next mile or two. This is the Mojave Road, and it becomes a challenging 4x4 route in places. Railroad tracks through the canyon, about 16 trains/day, but no horns. Some campsites are fairly far from the tracks if that's a bother. Decent cell service from Verizon and AT&T, AT&T seems better. Range of 4-25 Megabit. - bobk3d

OK, hadn't seen the Ghost Town since our kids were little. However, probably won't go back anytime soon....at least not on the weekend or holiday....the entire campground had been taken over by 4x4 jeeps, etc. There was a huge organized group that was very noisy at night seemed to be sponsored by Jeep Company. There were 2 Jeep reps. there and one parked a new jeep that they were showing off in our site. If you are a jeep person it would be good...if you have a family....maybe not. Might be OK during the week-Monday-Thursday. Sites could have been in better shape, also no shade anywhere. - mfm51

As others have said, the sites are pretty narrow and most are also very short and uneven. One important point is that there are really two separate campgrounds here--one is near the entrance and was packed with off-road bikers and 4-wheelers. I would NOT want to stay there because of the dust from vehicles constantly coming and going. The other campground is down two canyons and was almost deserted, which was gnice because it would not have been pleasant had it been full because of the narrow and short sites. The best part is that no off-road bikes or vehicles are permitted in this area! Roads are paved but sites are gravel, and there are no-hookup sites, electric-only sites, and full-hookup sites. I chose a full hookup site primarily because it looked bigger and was in a more open area for satellite signals. I was able to get two-bars of Verizon data, which was also good, but this seems to be spotty due to the canyon walls, which are not horribly tall, but some sites back up directly to them. I stayed in the circle area and the restroom looked very new, although I did not use it. - judy_online

Stayed overnight on our way to the Grand canyon in B10. Sites are primitive, remote, &"rustic". Full hookups, everything worked fine. Very uneven site, very close together but luckily it was midweek so no one around us. I would probably stay in the A's next time. Ghost town was fun & interesting. Glad we came. - catmama
