4 RV Parks near Nipton, California
May 2018 - $30.00
Biggest negative was noise: very close to RR tracks. At least four trains between midnight and 6am. Postive: Good overnight location for us when headed from CA to Utah. Near NW edge of Mojave National Preserve. Verizon 4G with 3 bars. Located about 10 miles off I-15. Older blacktop road to the area was slightly rough. Interior roads and pads were flat and mostly level. Friendly staff, but new person at trading post sent us to the long-term RV area. We eventually found the 4 sites for overnight RV camping, near the teepees. Nothing really great about this other than a convenient distance for us. Trains were a big negative, but location was very quiet otherwise. Bathroom in a quonset hut with two unisex showers, two unisex toilets and a sauna. Low end construction: floor is a combination dirt, cement tiles and raised wood. Showers were very clean -- molded unibody. - OlderGoat

Do not even think about taking your RV here. It's terrible. Nothing but dirt in a run down, scary environment. We were quoted a rate of $45.00 but they only charged $40.00 and that's the most positive thing I can say. I reserved two days via email exchange with them and when we arrived we were told that we had been expected the day prior. After we signed up and paid an employee came in and barked at us asking if we had a reservation. (I double checked the email exchange and the mistake was not mine.) We were, after some confusion about where to put us, shown a site with full hookups across the street from the store and cafe and were among what looked like full timers with mostly run down trailers. There were no restrooms unless you count a shed with some toilets in it and no windows on it. I've never stayed in a place this awful in my life. Absolutely the worst experience of my several years RVing and snowbirding. Terrible Terrible Terrible. The store is well stocked, but though we were the only customers in the store we were not greeted or asked if we needed help. The cafe closed early on Sunday. No problem we went to Good Springs and had a wonderful lunch at the Pioneer Saloon. - Maraywil

Odd place but very convenient to Mojave. Call ahead to verify rates. Other review says $25 - we got charged $50. In the middle of nowhere - buy gas and groceries before coming. Pull-through sites with some shade on south side of the road; back-in sites are behind hotel and trading post. Nice to be in an isolated, dark-sky, quiet (except for occasional trains) spot. - rvericksons

Loved this beautiful, quiet park. Currently, potable water is at a minimum while they fix their water system. There are only a few spouts available, and no filling of RVs allowed. The dump station is still available. We managed the dirt road from the north with our 42.5' fifth just fine. We could have gone around and used the south paved entrance, but we were coming from the north. We took it slow and had no problem. I do wish the visitors centers would keep tabs on whether or not the campgrounds are full or not, before you make the drive all the way out to the campground. we were told that it would be "no problem," but we took one of the last two sites available, and watched many people come through and leave as it was full. The rangers do not monitor the campgrounds much, if at all. There is plenty of space between campers, and quiet hours are 7-7, which is nice. Incredible views of the mountains and stars. We would definitely stay there again. - RVerFamily

The site was really beautiful and the each site is spaced far enough for privacy. The pit toilet was clean. My only complaint is the wind really kicked up that night. I read the reviews about windy but that is an understatement. I think it was calm until appx 9pm as the wind started to build. By midnight I think it was blowing 30mph. Our truck shook all night. The poor tent campers packed up as soon as it was light. - Oakland510

Wonderful, remote area, but listen to SteveSox review! Entry road from the north is not worth the pain. Stark, open area with the beauty of the desert. Typical of a national forest site: no power, no wifi, no Verizon. Very popular -- we were lucky to get a spot on a Saturday night. - OlderGoat
