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

Very upset about being intentionally conned today with regards to the pricing listed on their website. Price shown with AAA membership was $23.85 plus $2.00 for cable. After reserving by phone in the morning we arrived in the afternoon only to be told that the rate would now be $39.00. After pointing out the price on their own website I was told first that AAA was in charge of their website and was supposed to change it. When i told them that that couldn't be true they then told me that they hadn't gotten around to changing it since they changed their prices in the spring! We left without staYing after this incedent. - Beth p

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

Campground was full when we tried to stay. The grounds were adequately kept, but could have used some TLC. All spaces are back-in. Looks like that are mostly long term tenants here. - sandstorm

Pulled into this "park", looked around at the lack of amenities, shade, trees, etc. The only thing there appeared to be an abundance of was blowing sand and wind. The few units in the "park" appeared to have been there for a very extended time. Needless to say we did not stay. - sandstorm

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
