Making the run from the California Coast to Southern AZ is always very hot in the summer. Although not a destination this KOA is a good overnight stop. Level gravel sites with shade and room for larger motor homes. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

Well, staying in the Mojave in late June is never ideal. It was 109 F. Thankfully, we have AC and the shore power was stable. The campground was about half full. The pool was showing its age, but so cool and relaxing on such a hot day. The sites are close together, but divided by shrubbery in the center of the park. All sites are gravel, and summer winds blow a lot of dust around. Then a passing shower leaves your rig caked in a thin layer of mud. None of this is under the control of the KOA owners, but it's good to know what you will face when traveling through the desert during summer. They filled our propane tank just prior to departure and the rate was reasonable. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Take online reservations with a grain of salt. Our gravel pull-through full-hookup site was actually a dirt back-in water/electric only site. Front desk acted surprised at the error, even after processing my check-in that said it was a full hookup site. Park was booked solid, so we were stuck for the first night. They moved us to a proper site that opened up the next morning and gave us a discount. This KOA shows quite a bit of wear and tear, though they keep it fairly clean. I've deducted two points for the registration error and one for decrepit facilities. P.s. Best phone in that reservation. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Travel Trailer.

A very convenient park. We got a pull through site and it was just big enough for our 39 foot coach with the toad attached. Easy to get around with very nice facilities. You can walk out into the wide open spaces right behind the park which is a great place to walk the dog. The internet worked well. Our only complaint was all but the one handicapped shower were pay showers which I thought was a bit ridiculous since the rates should include use of the shower. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

We always stay at this park when passing through the area as it is the nicest. The facilities are always spotlessly clean. There is an excellent laundry with a large washer and I always plan to do laundry here. Showers are individual. We had a nice shady site and there is vegetation between each site. Although the interstate is close by, traffic noise does not interfere with our sleep. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Gas nearby is expensive ... wait until Barstow to get it for a considerable savings.

Sites are nicely separated from neighbours by oleander bushes, providing some privacy. They are wide but not very long; disconnecting is a must if you're in a bigger rig. The desert sand is covered with fine gravel throughout the park, which makes it 'cleaner' and it doesn't track into the RV as much. Hookups all worked very well. Staff very friendly and helpful, the caretaker even filled my propane bottle and had it reinstalled on my RV by the time I was done paying. OK doggy park, but even better is to just unleash in the adjacent desert that goes on for miles and miles. Some highway noise but not too bad. Good cable, strong Verizon. Nice pool and playground. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for an overnight stay as easy access from I-15. Very large and level gravel sites and picnic table in good condition. Clean and nice restrooms and laundry. Campsite is kept in very good condition. There is highway noise, cable TV picture not great, and Wi-Fi flaky, but OK for overnight. Price on high side. If you stay here you must visit Peggy Sue's 50"s Diner just half a mile from the campsite. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

It's a very nice park, the showers and restrooms were great, sand/gravel sites. And some if not most have shade trees. Only (-) is the freeway noise, but at night is not much of a problem. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Tent Trailer.

This is a nice park with shrubs in between most of the spots for privacy. They have a nice fenced off dog park. The sites are gravel stones and are fairly level. The showers are clean but require quarters to make the water come out! Really! I suggest they charge $1 more a night and include the water! Nice pool and kid friendly with a nice play area.

Good for a KOA. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Easy on and off interstate. Close to some of the old mining towns. We will return when in the area. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here before. We would give this KOA a 10 but it is in the Mojave desert and the scenery isn't top notch. Despite that, they have done a great job with what they have to work with. A bit windy but long, wide sites with Oleanders between providing privacy. Sold WiFi (a bit slow in the evenings) and cable (all analog). Dog run is really large and all new. A great place to overnight as it is conveniently located just off I-15. Try the strawberry ice cream. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is close to freeway and gas stations, so some noise. Roads and sites are gravel with some trees for shade. Water, power, and cell (AT&T) were good. A little pricey for what you get, but not much else around. Close to Calico Ghost town. We would camp here again. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

This is an attractive CG. We stayed here previously about 8 years ago. And had no negative memories This time we were disappointing in several things. 1. We were assigned a poor site furthermost from the showers even though we are KOA Card Carriers and the facility was not even half full. We changed sites. 2. The WiFi was out of service. 3. The showers had a 6 minute limit per "button push" on wall boxes that were originally a coin-operated showers. Just kind of "chincy". We felt that $46 was steep.

This is the best KOA we have ever stayed in. The staff was helpful and friendly, the park was immaculate! Pull through sites are large and wide most have shade and the vegetation forms privacy between sites. It has a large fenced dog run and a large open area for walks in the desert. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The pool unfortunately was not operational while we were there, but we will definitely make this a stop on any future travels. It is also within 3 miles of Calico Ghost town. A great find! You can hear the freeway noise. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Travel Trailer.

An easy off easy on I-15 campsite but very low traffic noise. Gravel roads and sites, sites are spacious, but at an angle which is good for pulling through but loses a bit of space. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi. Good sized pool but closed during our stay. Sadly as with most KOAs these days it is overpriced. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
