Nice, quiet park with not many people there. Sites are back-in and some pull through; nice size sites; 30amp and 50amp available; good voltage and water quality. No cable; good Wifi reception. They had a small pool, no playground, and two ponds with ducks (they did allow the dogs to swim in them). Did not check out the rec hall. It was a nice park for an overnight stop. We would stop here again. - Kerch Family

This park is a convenient place to stay on the way for overnight only. Spaces are adequate for our 37' motorhome and Jeep tow vehicle. Cable TV had only 3 stations with very bad reception. WIFI not working. It was very windy conditions and manager said that's why WIFI was bad. This was the second time we had stayed here and WIFI wasn't any better the first time. Owner was friendly and helpful. Extra charge for credit. Cash preferred. Road noise was minimal even though highway is very close. We will stay again. - We3Travel

This is a very nice little park, with nice manager. Our pull-through site was a little short and we hung out a little in the roadway in the front, which were the instructions given by the manager, in order to not block the roadway behind us. But she understood our desire to not unhook the toad, as we were leaving in the morning. Site was level and utilities worked well. No WiFi, as it was down. Park was neat and clean. A lot of road noise all night. No picnic table. Really a nice little park. We would stay here again. - Vicki K

This park is better Nov - April. We were there June 1 and it was HOT. First site electric did not work. Second site all utilities worked. Quiet. Dusty. Lots of flying dirt. Good hike trails from park. - RFCN2

We stayed here from Saturday till Tuesday. The campground is about 2 miles from the highway, situated in a canyon in the hills. Very quiet at night. They get a lot of people with OHVs because they have direct access to the OHV trails in the desert around the park. This is a real advantage if you own one of these vehicles.
The hookups were all in very good condition, no power or water problems. The black tank hookup had well maintained threads that worked well with my adapter.
The sites were pretty primitive, and you will have to level your RV. We stayed in site B18, which was pretty roomy, but the rest of the sites are pretty close to each other, barely room to open an awning. They are pretty deep though, and each had a picnic table and fire pit.
The ghost town is within walking distance of the campground, and there are a lot of desert hiking trails right out of the park. - tspin818

To correct a previous reviewer, this park does not have full hookups in all sites; many are dry camping and some are electric only. This is a family campground with RVs and tents and people come and go until very late at night. We reserved via the web and forgot to write down our space # (our fault). That was a huge mistake because the park gate isn't manned after 5 p.m. and while they list the available spaces, there's nothing to say who has which reserved space. We took another full hook-up only to have a "ranger" come by at 10 p.m., wake us from a dead sleep, and tell my 70 year old husband to move our RV. Be sure to bring your reservation space info with you. There is no wifi at this park. It is very dog-and-kid-friendly. - beckydmc

These are all pull thru dirt/gravel sites. It's extremely quiet here. We felt safe here and we had our two young babies with us. There is a nice pool and a fishing pond. There are full time residents but they keep to themselves and keep the park clean. We'd stay again. It was a great stop for one night. Friendly staff. We didn't hear the train whistles except when we went outside. - Kimmy B

The pros: Daggett is a tiny town about 13 miles from Barstow. It is mountainous and has a beautiful, starry skyline. The reception desk was efficient and friendly. We felt safe here, even walking the dogs outside in the wee hours. Our site was a pull-thru. The cons: The campground is right near a very, very active train line. Train whistles blew all night. But for the train noise, this would be a fine place for more than a single night. - beckydmc

This park is good only for a one night pass-through. We had to roust a person out of their mobile home to find us a site. (I had called ahead to make reservations). Once rousted, I will say he tried to be helpful. The entire park is dirt and gravel. The sites were far from level. They were large enough for us to remain hooked up. The Wi-Fi was slow and the cable TV was very poor. There was dog waste everywhere, literally! We had a frozen water spigot in the morning. (We had unhooked our hoses to protect them from the cold.) We would only return to this place if there wasn't anything, anywhere else. - shovelguy

On the plus side we found the staff accommodating. Even gave us a discount on propane fill because we had to wait 10 minutes. Be sure to get a site with shade trees. Made a huge difference. On the negative side I don't like the oleander bushes with warning signs about berries, leaves and wood being poisonous. Our dog loves bushes so had to watch carefully. - CCMcLeod

We came to visit Calico. We have stayed here several times over the past five years - each time we return, it appears more run down. However, it really is still the best park in the area (although, the county park near Calico looks much improved over the years). The good: location is easy to get to; sites easy to park in; bushes divide the spaces and our aisle had large pine trees with lots of shade; the store is well-stocked with necessities; the staff was friendly and helpful. The bad: no Wi-Fi outside of store/clubhouse using their hotspot (which worked well, but was not convenient); the game room was pretty beat up - needs refreshing (especially billiard table with torn felt); cable TV did not work ( 12 local channels can be picked up by TV antenna - our sat TV was blocked by trees, which would have been OK if we got cable ); 11am (used to be noon) check out time. - mccougar

Easy to locate off I15. Being close to interstate didn't bother us at all, in fact didn't hear any noise inside trailer. Wifi was non-existent which was disappointing. We had some nice shade. - Canadian Road Runners

Beware that this is a 40 year old RV park. The price reflects that. It has been in the family all that time. That said, the owners have excellent customer service and make sure you are comfortable and satisfied. This is a popular stop heading to Las Vegas.
The sites are dirt with a tree and picnic table at each. There is cable TV but no WiFi. You can get it commercially for $5.00 per day. Bathrooms are old but clean. Laundry is very large and clean.
We asked for a pull thru but those were full so we got a back-in. We were guided in perfectly and given instructions on hook-ups and location of facilities.
Overall I gave this a great rating because of the customer service. The owners really appreciate your business and it is great for a stopover. - Slkeyes

This is a great overnight stop. It's is old school: call for a reservation and they hold the site w/o credit card. Upon arrival they lead you to your site, and direct you into the site. After you hook up and you approve of the site then you go to the office to pay. Cash or checks only. 30 or 50 Amps are different price, we paid for 50, with GS and paid 39 bucks. Owner was a wealth of info about the area and best routes to your next destination. Water, electric, cable and sewer ok. We did not use the bath house and we camped in a Motorhome. There are some long term people here in a separate area but they are quiet and neat. We will stay here again as we pass through. - Lemo

Our GPS took us right here. We have the Rand McNalley one and it was right on.
Nice people to deal with.
Led us to our site which was close to another one but no problem getting in our site. Took our 40ft mh and connected toad no problem.
Dirt but clean.
Low rent neighborhood so wife didn't walk around here.
Would stay here again when passing through.
Oh, make a reservation if staying here. We did and good thing we did as it was full by 9PM. - Bluebird Bob

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
