11 RV Parks near Mojave, California

I claimed the first pull through I came across. Should have driven the whole loop, but it was only for one night so that was fine. That site was too close to the road, so dust was a problem, but the campground was lightly occupied so not a huge problem .
Lots of little trails, and plenty of OHV use in the area. I could have chosen a site further off the road, but I was done driving for the day. This place is very quiet, can get gusty in the afternoon. This will be dry camping so plan accordingly. The visitor center was not open so there was no local information or wood available, they will likely staff the visitor center later this summer, I am guessing. Also, no cell service either. VERY quiet. - Sparksrick

Due to budget cuts, there was no visible staff presence. Not even rangers. The visitor center is closed in the off season, as is the dump station (even though there's a sign saying the dump station is open on Sundays). Other than that, the campground is the same as ever. Nobody seems to be taking advantage of the lack of park supervision to behave badly. - sdayman

This place is absolutely stunning. There are beautiful geological formations, like outdoor stalactites and stalagmites which surround the canyon walls. There is a beautiful desert area in the middle with nature trails and a dessert tortoise area by the visitor center. We visited in March and so there were several wild flowers in bloom. We also arrived on a weekday so it was not busy at all. We did not use the water, pit toilets, or dump station so I cannot comment on those. - cherryalmond

Mostly a fulltime/longtime resident park with lots of shade trees. Park is older well maintained with narrow dirt interior roads. Two large rigs would have trouble passing each other. a Cable TV for a fee but reception poor at the three sites I tested. Free WiFi with decent reception. Road leading to the park lined with trees that need trimming badly. Limbs will drag on your rig unless you swing wide. Served our purpose for a two night rest stop. - Shikepoke

For $20 with Passport America, it's ok for an overnight but if we had to pay full price of $40 per night would not have stayed. Pull-throughs dirt sites for short stay, no sewer, 30 amp power and is part of a RV storage area for . The sites in front were nicer with full hook-ups/ Nice little patio and picnic table. Quiet area with friendly manager. - Ruffin It

We have stayed here five or six times and will do so again. It is just what we need traveling from Washington the the California Desert. We have a Motorhome and toad, so the area in the back is just what we need for a night. Price is PA. Back lot consists of eight pull throughs in a gravel/dirt lot. No sewer, but passing through, no big deal. When we were there, they were adding 50 amp service to the back area. We will stay here again. - Kalama Traveler

We pulled in for two nights. Friendly staff. Quiet no one bothering you, no dogs barking. Even with tracks nearby was not noisy. We stayed her on New years eve and only a little noise at midnight much less then we thought we might hear. Overall a good stay. There is a Denny's, Arco and Sprouts not too far from the park. - Terrybojo1

Web site states 50 sites, 90% are permanent residents. Sites are very close together, not level and the wind is so bad here your rig shakes all night long. There is No where for dogs and when I tried to walk my 10 pound dog, the manager came out of his rig and told me to leave the property to let my dog pee. We did, but I would never stay here again. Also, no internet code was provided for their secure connection. - Thelma3

Not much to choose from in these parts. This is an older park with about 75% of the sites occupied by permanent residents. They were a mix of some down and out to working people to retirees trying to make that SS check feed and house them. We didn't have any trouble with anyone. Everybody kept to themselves. Everything worked as it should and even though the park is situated along side the Spaceport and near a rail yard the noise wasn't bad. I would stay here again. - JC69

The fam camp site has 25 spots that can accommodate fivers, trailers, and RVs. It has an overflow parking location as well. We took our TT and stayed 2 nights with a late check-in on our first day on a Friday. It was the weekend of Memorial Day and the park had about 6-8 spots available. The spot we got was on the west side of the loop with FHU. It was an end pad so we had plenty of parking space for my tow vehicle alongside our TT. The pad was asphalt and I did need to level my TT. The right side of our TT was lower than the left side. Quiet location away from the main road, but close to everything. The Express at the gas station was a 5 minute walk or less from our spot. The bowling alley is also walking distance away, maybe a 5 minute walk, if that. The BX, Commissary, and Burger King can be walked to as well. But I would suggest taking a vehicle if you plan on loading up on groceries and snacks. The walk can be cumbersome in the heat while carrying multiple bags of items. There is a swimming pool, tennis courts (although it needs to be weeded), laundry, men's/women's showers and toilets, and a small room with an ice machine, two exercise bikes, tables, and Directv. The campsite, as a whole, was very clean. I would say this place is good to get away, kick up your feet, and just relax. There aren't much else to do except for what I mentioned above. One thing to note about the spot on west side of the loop that we stayed in, your awning is minimally effective in blocking the sun. Until it gets later in the day, where the back end of your TT/RV assists in blocking out most of the sun. One thing I seemed to notice was a few of the campers onsite were homesteaders. It was quite obvious who they were. Overall, this isn't a bad place. But it isn't something to write home about either. Until they allow reservations and minimize homesteaders, this place will be at the bottom of my list. - Batangeno

Stayed here on the overflow sites for three nights. Full park due to military base construction workers. Full price is 17., overflow is 5. Used the restrooms, laundry, day room, dump station and was able to refill water tanks. - washingtoncolorado

We stayed at the campground for a week prior to Christmas. There were plenty of sites available at that time. Sites are relatively level, only requiring a couple of blocks. There is a check in board at the entrance of the park where you place your money in the locked box and registration card on the back of the board. I had contact with the camp host prior to our arrival checking on availability however never saw him during our stay. The Wi-Fi was down when we got there and it took about four days before we got it back up. There is no cable and no TV signal. There was a Direct TV in the lounge however that was down as well throughout our stay. BX, commissary, and service station were open except for Christmas. Most other base functions to include the club were down. A decent place to stay. - ownedafew

This has been one of our favorite campgrounds over the past 2.5 months. Easy to get into and we love the view of the fields, windmills, and glider airplanes. Very quiet and a nice trees. - Hikers

Rv Park is s bare bones park. Very clean. Quiet. Near an airport for gliders away from Freeway. We have stayed here several times and have not even seen a glider. - Littlegrami

What an unexpected gem! This is a small campground next to a private airport. We had water and electric hook-ups. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful. The campground had clean bathrooms and showers and a convenient laundry room. While we were here the weather was a bit rough, but on many days we were told you could watch small airplanes and gliders operate from the campground. There were lots of ravens and hawks in the area as well as other birds and small animals to view. It is a somewhat rural area away from the hectic pace. It was a treat to stop here.
The sites are almost all pull-through on gravel with a very slight slope forward. It has 50 amp service as well as water and a dump station. For $27 a night, this was definitely a great bargain. - Walter48

This park is actually a Mobile Home Park with RV parking around the perimeter. About half the sites have concrete pads, the other half (around the east perimeter) are just grass and you need to 'angle' park to accommodate the space since there is not enough room to back directly in. The park is close to the train tracks, you will hear them pass through during the evening. The manager is very nice and willing to work with anyone although he will not take reservations. We called the day before to be sure there would be a space to park in. The park is also adjacent to the local airport, but it was pretty quiet the 2 nights we stayed here. The park isn't recommended for long term stay, but if you need to stay a night to rest up during your trip it will fit the bill. - JayTee

This is a dry-campers dream! If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful setting for a weekend in the mountains then this is the place for you. It was easy for us to find a place to park our 26' TT, but you'll need to set a few more blocks under your leveling jacks. This camp is about 4500' elevation and the sites are at different levels on the mountain. Big motorhomes and 5th wheels should stay closer to the entrance: site 60 and 61 are perfect for big rigs. There's plenty of hiking trails, pine trees and fresh air. Tehachapi tends to be 10-20 degrees cooler than the neighboring Mojave Desert and Central Valley, which makes this a great summer retreat. It's first some first serve, $14/night, and no hook-ups. So if you can deal with that, then you will have a great time! - Forrman

We were sent to Indian Hill Ranch & RV Park by another RV park that was full. We were offered the sites "behind the electric gate" & told that they were water & electric only but we'd have privacy. They were right & we loved it. It was like boondocking but with hookups. We were meeting another couple & they had a site that had 2 hookups but was away from the other sites - perfect. We don't use RV park restrooms/showers so not having those close wasn't a problem for us. If primitive camping isn't your idea of a great site, we wouldn't recommend this. If you prefer scenery over close quarters, this is a great place to spend a little time. - licensedtochill

FIrst off, I called for a reservation and message said to email. So, I emailed, but never got a reply or confirmation. Then I called to make sure we had a spot but never got a call back. Other reviews said they were late in calling back so we took a chance and went anyway. When we arrived no one was in the office but a lady ran out and met us at the car. She had us on the list but said "most people don't show up, so we don't open the office". Gee, if you don't send a confirmation its no wonder! She took us to the so-called premium sites, behind the gate. It's a mile or so down a dirt road in an all dirt section with run down sites. Uneven, bumpy sites with stumps sticking up for electric and water. Broken down picnic tables and shacks that I have no idea why they were there. Never set foot in the bathrooms so don't know if they were working or not. We were the only ones back there. These sites are more expensive and advertised as beside the "lake". The lake turns out to be 2 dried up algae covered holes in the ground. Needless to say the bugs were around. The only reason I give this 1 star is the park is on a ranch that is on very beautiful land. It's quiet in the back area and you can hear / see coyotes at night. I think the owners have no money to keep this place up, which is unfortunate. They should charge a lot less money! - PMG

We did like this park. Nice hiking trails to the premium sites and lake that are open in the summer. A heads up. Our phone calls and e-mails were returned only after several days. We were here in December. We were lucky to get an end site and had a nice view of the hills. We don't tow another vehicle, so unlikely we'll return as other than the hike, not much more to see walking. - billandme

Good for what it is - an asphalt parking lot with hookups. Sites are level and spacious enough, hookups are good. Excellent value (only $20 for 30 amp). They don't take reservations, and we were fortunate to snag one of the last sites around 3:30 p.m. (don't know if that's normal). Quiet at night, but it's right next to Edwards Air Force Base and the noise from the planes was deafening when we arrived. A sonic boom shook the RV so hard the next morning we thought something had hit the roof. - Keeping up with the Joneses

I stay here on a sporadic schedule whenever I visit family. It's always had spaces available. However, I believe the park closes during their state fair in August. The spaces are easy access and wide. I parked my truck and trailer plus had adequate room to park a borrowed vehicle next to my trailer during my stay. The park and restrooms/showers are quite clean and spacious. However the shower curtains were tattered and kinda moldy. The park is a mix of travelers and longer term residents. All were quiet and friendly. While I was there the fairgrounds had a large swap meet one weekend and a rodeo another weekend. Neither event created excess noise or traffic.
Wi fi is available but was marginal at best. There is no cable which is something that is sorely needed, as over the air TV reception was terrible.
This park is a good place to use as a base if you have other things to do. I noticed the park host are not always around during the day so you have to self register. The problem with that I witnessed is if you happen to leave without leaving something to "mark" your site and someone else come in and sets up in your spot, you're gonna have headache to straighten things out.
One other thing- don't leave your awnings open unattended as the winds can pick up suddenly and usually every afternoon. - AV-Ed

This is a concrete lot on the north side of the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds with full hookups and 50 amp power for $25/night. We stayed here one night as a stopover on a trip. There are no services here other than hookups. The rv slots are painted lines on the ground.
If you are attending an event at the Fairgrounds, it is an ideal location. If there is no fairgrounds event, as for our night, this camp is quiet and isolated.
There were many longer term residents during our stay, working on the new solar panel farms outside of town according to our neighbor.
The camping slots are wide and easy to access. The power voltage was consistent as the water pressure. Be sure to check in with the RV park manager since they do take reservations. That wasn't clear to us when we used the self service check-in. We later saw it in their printed rules.
We didn't use the bathrooms or showers as we stayed in our unit. There was a consistent 20 knot west wind all night long so nobody was using awnings.
Basic services for a reasonable price. - Gaucho Mac

Men's shower just usable nothing to hang your stuff. Women's shower a little better clean enough but nothing to hang too.
Checked in late 9PM no problems just fill the enveloppe
Little bit hard to find the campground. - Alban Michel

The rate reflects power and water hook up. FHU was $30 and tenting was $15. It's hard to tell if the recent rains are what makes this park feel a bit run down, or if it is a bit rundown. There are many areas where it is obvious campers were stuck in the recent rains. And parts of the park are still closed today, 5 days later, as they appear to be drying up. And the lake is down probably 20 feet. And the bathrooms are dark. The women's seemed clean, but the men's definitely was not. We did have a brand new picnic table at our site. And the electrical box was newish. The roads are dirt. I would not stay here again, but I might try something else in the area. - ALbums

The lake level was low due to the drought and a crew was preparing the lake-shore for a weekend rock festival. So, we were fortunate to stay there on a weekday. We had one of the 12 electric and water sites because all the FHU sites were taken. But, for $20, this site was the only bargain campground we found in California. Definitely worth considering as an overnight stop between Barstow and Bakersfield. - fanrgs
