Beautiful dry camping spot, EXCEPT... the road in. Washboarding and steepness are the two main problems, but rocks and ruts are also numerous. I had been here before in a car and had totally forgotten about that. So, not knowing any better, I headed down in my 33" Class A towing a car. There's no place to turn around anyway. I made it safely, and things actually didn't get smashed up too badly. Perhaps I should wait until I leave safely before posting this review. There are two very steep uphill sections awaiting. But, the campsites are nice, level, and fairly well-spaced. There seem to be about ten of them, all tent and van campers. Plenty of open sites on a weekday in April, but the weather is starting to get hot. If you have a Jeep or 4x4 truck, you should be able to ford the river just past the campground, and there seem to be more places to explore the next mile or two. This is the Mojave Road, and it becomes a challenging 4x4 route in places. Railroad tracks through the canyon, about 16 trains/day, but no horns. Some campsites are fairly far from the tracks if that's a bother. Decent cell service from Verizon and AT&T, AT&T seems better. Range of 4-25 Megabit. - bobk3d

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a base camp to go out and do some 4x4 driving in the back country. Close to the city of Barstow. Gas and food sources are near by. The site was not level and kind of close to others, the site I had included electric, I did not notice if there was water, I did not hook up to it. There was no sewer but there is a dump station close by. Windy but that's pretty normal at times for the desert. I saw what looked like lots of BLM campers just off Calico road if you want to rough it. - Tony T

We stopped for 2 nights to see Calico, which is included in the price. This is typical desert scenery, lots of trails, etc. We stayed in the "A" section, which is full hook ups. Some of the sites are not very level, we used blocks under our levelers. Sites A1 - A20 are 30 Amp, while sites A21 - A23 and the back in sites (B area) are 50 Amp. Although a bit rough and rustic, everything worked well. - Calif Cruiser

OK, hadn't seen the Ghost Town since our kids were little. However, probably won't go back anytime soon....at least not on the weekend or holiday....the entire campground had been taken over by 4x4 jeeps, etc. There was a huge organized group that was very noisy at night seemed to be sponsored by Jeep Company. There were 2 Jeep reps. there and one parked a new jeep that they were showing off in our site. If you are a jeep person it would be good...if you have a family....maybe not. Might be OK during the week-Monday-Thursday. Sites could have been in better shape, also no shade anywhere. - mfm51
