3 Parks near Mojave, California
Oct 2014 - $25.00
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

This was our second visit. This time we picked site #4 for its seclusion and space. The state continues the nice upgrades. The handicap sites #1, 2 have shade shelters, nice restroom, and even a hose-friendly spigot. Handicap #6 is nice as well. They're adding yet another handicap site up near the cliffs. The handicap sites are well-suited for a Class C or smaller. The dump station was open on Sunday Oct. 20th for a "trial run" from 9 to 5 or so. Fifteen dollar fee to dump, but I didn't take advantage of it, nor did anybody else it from what I saw. We really enjoyed the weekend and we will return. - sdayman

I don't remember exactly how much we paid for one night, but it was around $25-$30. It was a lovely little park meticulously maintained by the owners. The site was just barely big enough for our 42' rig, and it was a bit of a squeeze to back her in, but we made it.
It has a very nice, large pool and pool area, but little else in the way of amenities. That's OK for us - we weren't expecting anything special because we only used it to split a long trip in half - but we were pleasantly surprised.
The owners were very nice, and they make their own crafts you can buy in their little store off the main office. Cute stuff. One not-so-nice thing for us is that they only have 30 amp service, which means we could only run one a/c at a time... and it's in the middle of the Mojave Desert, so it was hot. We made do, but 50 amp would've been nice.
The park was very quiet, clean, extremely well maintained, and a pleasant experience overall. We'd stay here again, but really just as a layover to somewhere else. It's very nice, but it's hardly what I would call a destination spot. - Wryly Blithe

The price quoted was with a Passport America discount and includes a $2.00 charge for cable. Had a shaded full hookup back-in site with cable. The site was quite narrow and on my blind side, so I needed help getting the rig situated, but the office staff was happy to help. It was such a peaceful stay that we stayed an extra day. There's a fenced dog run in the pull-through area down the hill. It's not fancy, but the dog loves sniffing around all of the fallen logs and tree branches. Will stay here again if in the area. - frmOregon

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Do not follow your GPS, instead use the directions given on the Passport America web site. Roads in the park are very tight for big rigs and are all dirt. Dusty! We were assigned space #7 at the very back of the park, water and 30 amp electric only. When we hooked up to the water, the faucet leaked, so the manager jumped right on the problem and installed new fittings while we were out for dinner. Nice stop over park while traveling. Highly recommend Gloria's Mexican Food in California City. We would stay here again. - StarlifterFE

We stayed here 2 nights. There isn't anywhere else to stay. It isn't an RV park; most sites are RV's, but they are extended stay. It is a run down town, and this park is right in town. It's okay for a night, but there's not much to do. There is a coffee shop not far from the park which is very nice. It serves great coffee and other drinks, has fresh donuts and serves sandwiches, too. - bonne1

There are a lot of permanent residents in the park and some very run down trailers, so don’t expect a beautiful park. It worked for us as an overnight while passing through and was nice and quiet at night. It felt fairly safe since one of the residents was a sheriff’s deputy. The lady manager was very nice and accommodating. The service is 30 amp but seemed to be strong service. We did not have reservations, but there were lots of open spaces. We did not have a problem with satellite since there are no trees. Our Verizon phone and data card worked well. The prior reviewers have pointed out the things to do in town, so I will not go into them. There is a surprisingly good food market in town. As noted, do expect wind. We would stay here again if passing through, but only for a night on the way. - TheJim

When you see thousands of wind turbines on all the hillsides surrounding the park you know you are in for some windy times, but the morning dawned bright and clear and the wind was gone! The park is still about like the previous reviews have stated, not much has changed. The staff was very friendly and the many permanent residents are parked around the perimeter and not a problem. The Verizon signal is good for cell phones or Mi-Fi. There are few trees so the satellite reception is also good. Power and water are good and we assume the sewer is OK as well. We did not use the bathrooms or showers so cannot comment on those. Adjacent to the park is the Mojave Airport, home of Scaled Composites Company of Burt Rutan, who has developed many unique aircraft including the remarkable Spaceship One. The airport is quite a busy place with numerous jet transport aircraft being serviced and composite parts being developed at numerous small companies. We visited the Voyager Restaurant overlooking the ramp and had an excellent breakfast. There is even a hookup to the tower radio so you can listen to pilots calling in. We would stop here again for an overnight or if we had business here. - thezafts
