Check in was fast and friendly. There weren't many RV's in the park so had no problem getting a spot we wanted. Restrooms/Showers are clean with two showers and two sinks. There is no cable and when I asked about WIFI I was told there was a hot spot in the office, but they didn't know the password two different days when I asked so I don't know if it was good or not. They are fixing up a few things around the park and painting the shower building outside. The laundry has 4 washers and 4 dryers. There is no cart to take clothes from washers to dryers. The roads are dirt and dusty. The sites are a bit of gravel and they say they are planning to put more gravel on the sites. There is a cement patio at the sites. Most sites are open with no trees, but a few have small trees. There are trains within hearing distance running several times a night and we experienced helicopter traffic during the day periodically and one late night a couple times. The highway traffic is steady but not too loud. We camped at BLM-Pilot Knob Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is dry camping on BLM land located way behind the Shell station just off the I-8. They only allow self contained hard sided RV's, no tents. There is a free 14 day camp area and a section that is fenced off that is for long term stays (14 days being the shortest time allowed)The cost is $40.00. The Shell Station has a dump station and fresh water. We paid $15.00 to dump and take on water. Friendly people at the Shell Station and they were great about letting us have packages delivered there. It's a very quiet area although you can hear the trains but they didn't bother us at night when sleeping. There is a host at the entrance to the long term area that will take your money and put a sticker on your car and RV. If you like to dry camp this is a great place to stay and Los Algodones is only an exit away. We go over the border every year for various visits. The town of Winterhaven has a Wal-Mart Supercenter, Albertsons, and just about anything you may need. We're full-timing and find the 2 weeks where we're not in a park to be relaxing. We'll be back here again next year! We camped at BLM-Pilot Knob Camping Area in a Motorhome.
