5 RV Parks near Ridgecrest, California
Oct 2014 - $33.00
Staff not public friendly oriented.. sites too small and not clean. Pamphlet states your site is adequate for your RV and vehicle (1)! I had to park my pick up near the highway in an unsecured location where they're notorious for breaking out your windows... staff makes up stories to owner if they don't like you so that you won't be staying again but why would you!?I stayed last year for 3 wks and was excited to leave when I got the chance ! - User3779

We lost brakes coming out of Death Valley over Townes Pass. Ended up staying a week here. Basic gravel site with cement patio. Next to Hwy 178 so there is some highway noise although it didn't bother us. Bertrand RV & Mobile Home Park is located west of downtown Ridgecrest. The campground has 58 sites for recreational camping with 10 reserved for short-term, overnight stays. These short-term sites are on gravel and have full patios. All of the short-term spaces only accommodate back-in parking and measure 20 feet by 40 feet in size. Full water, electric and sewage connections are available at each spot as well as cable television connections. Wireless Internet but isn't reliable at the transient spots. The campground DOES NOT PROVIDE RESTROOMS, SHOWERS or on-site recreational activities. - SandyBBB

We were going to stay here for one night, but this is a scary looking park. Many older run down RVs seemed parked here forever. No one on duty when we came in, and although we saw 3 open spaces, I did not feel safe here at all. We did not stay. This is also an older mobile home park too. - Two+4

This is just a sandy parking lot! Electric is schetchy, our 30 amp outlet didn't work properly and our electric kept cutting off and it reached over 95 degrees in our RV. We didn't even stay the night had to leave because of electric issues. We had a bad feeling about the place the minute we drove in. And they have County inmates as maintenance workers. - MimiNana

Campground was run down with a lot of permanent and sites were too close together. It was windy, so a lot of blowing dust. No WI fi but OTA television and Verizon Internet worked good. Ridgecrest was a nice clean town with a nice Walmart nearby. I picked up nails and screws in the site. - silverwing

Stayed 2 nights here. It's basically a dirt parking lot with hookups. The sewer connection was iffy and we had to improvise to get the hose to lay properly when dumping.
It was hot (not a tree in sight), windy, dusty and kind of sad. But we wanted to visit some outdoor areas nearby and this place had the best ratings.
Staff was friendly enough. Many campers seem to be long term, with lots of "stuff" outside and around their sites. The folks we were next to sat outside each night (group of 5 or 6) and chatted, laughed and smoked.
Probably would stay again since it's the only game in town. - EileenC

We had stayed here before so we knew what to expect, which not much. Had to find the manager. Hand over $15.00 and go find a place you like. It is 1/2 way between Palm springs and Carson city so it is good for an overnight-er. Quiet, you can see 3 hwy s but you can't hear them. WiFi was available but I did'nt get a password so I used my Datajack. No cable but good over the air reception. - Ross Brand

When we got there the manager was not around albeit she did finally show after about 15 minutes. We went to the pull through overnight space which was very narrow when trying to avoid parking on the concrete slab which is a patio I guess. It is all dirt and the sites are uneven. Many permanent residents there. The most appalling thing is the restrooms and showers are literally unisex. If you don't mind taking a shower or using the restroom with an unknown member of the opposite sex, fine. I went back and used the one in our travel trailer. - Arthur M.

Our 50 amp, full hookup, pull through site was level and had a nice concrete patio. We could not pick up the WiFi at this site, but were told in advance which sites could pick up WiFi, and which could not. No TV stations over the antenna and no cable TV available. Verizon WiFi card worked well, but our Sprint phone did not. Sometimes you would have a signal and sometimes not. Nice desert in bloom behind us and dirt roads to walk the dog on. Large capacity dryer available. We would be okay staying here again if need be. - OnDaRoad

BLM - OHV Rec area with dispersed free camping. The main road in is paved. Several large staging areas and sites for camping with any size rig though not paved. Sprint phone and Verizon Wi-Fi card worked at the Visitors Ctr lot at Hwy 14 but not in where we camped. Large trucks coming in and out the first 3 - 4 miles of the area but not beyond that. We would stay here again. - OnDaRoad

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
