Basic national park spot with no hookups but in a cool out of the way spot. Nice mountain biking and hiking right out of the park and there was water spouts everywhere in the park to refill. - Adventure in Moving

This park has lots of great level sites for big rigs. We are 40'. There is a dump station, potable water and trash containers. Mountain and mesa views are just outside you door. We found this area to be really diverse in it's plants and cacti. Coyote and rattlesnake can be found in the area. - illini777

A word of warning. If your map program or GPS advises you to take Nipton Road off I-15 and via Cedar Canyon and Black Mountain road, DON'T! Cedar Canyon and the north part of Black Mountain Road are 16 miles of washboarded dirt road. Coming from the south on Black Mountain Road you have pavement right up to the campground entrance.
Don't be a fool. I was!
The campground has several pull-through and back-in sites large enough for big rigs. The campground loop roads are gravelled, the sites hard pack dirt. Everything is pretty much as the other reviews describe. Windy? Yep, you are in the desert. - SteveSox

A surprise find on the way between Searchlight NV and the Mojave Natl. Preserve. Nipton is a Whistlestop Desert Oasis town in the middle of nowhere. Trains that pass through town no longer are passenger like the old days, just freight. Check in is at the Trading Post, friendly staff. We were escorted out behind the hotel to a tree lined dirt lot with full hook-up sites. Trees provided great shade in the hot desert. Quonset Hut style unisex Bath house has 2 showers and 2 stools - individual stalls for each, but no mens/womens sections. They also offer eco-cabins; part cabin part tent. This was a no frills place extremely convenient to Mojave. They offer tent sites as well. If you're looking for a resort setting, move along. If you want a rustic, rural setting give them a try. - yesmar
