This campground is located about 12 miles off the interstate with easy paved access all the way to the campground. The campground is very well maintained and clean. There are covered picnic areas and group camping area. The fee is$8.00 a night, but can be discounted with national park access pass. Other than the short path around the painted rock exhibit, there wasn’t much to do in the surrounding area, but if your looking for a nice retreat/getaway for dry camping, this is the perfect place for it. The sites are very large and spaced apart with picnic tables and fire rings. There are some ADA accessible with paved area under both.
Very nice location only 4.5 miles from town market. The sign entering the park says "Permits Required" but I spoke to some campers that came here every winter and said that stopped about four years ago and no one there that I spoke to had one.
There is and area for horses and a picnic area with tables and grills.
Nice place to stay when passing through or to stay awhile.

Very quiet so much glass and old rusted tin cans, possibly from when mining was active here. Lots and lots of shards of broken glass, it’s part of the landscape almost. There are open mine pits, some fenced off, some not so be careful especially if you let your pets run free. Constant sound of planes overhead from the nearby AFB, with occasional low flying jets. Overall a nice place if you can get past all the broken glass, some areas worse than others.
Not too many chollas but there are some road in. Alley Rd was flat and level, some washboarding, ok for any rig just take it slow. Coming off of Alley Rd to pull out spots could be tricky for bigger rigs. There were a few nice looking spots that we didn’t attempt in our 26ft Class C because the road up was too steep. Deep dip on Alley Rd coming in, about 1.8 miles from where the paved road ends, we scraped our bike hitch both coming and going. At around 32.355867,-112.884902. Any rigs longer than about 26ft probably can’t make it further in than this spot if coming in from the north, or you can enter from the other side of the loop and come in that way.
Good verizon 4bars on 4GLTE, ATT had 2-3 bars on 3G, very slow.
Great dispersed camping 🏕. The farther from the highway, the better it gets.
Spent the night here on Dec. 20, 2020. Nice basic BLM camp ground. Clean pit toilets, but only two of them for the 60 camp sites. Mostly level sites, all gravel. Tables and fire ring at every site. Cool pile of rocks with Petroglyphs. Lots of history and nice informative displays. No services as far as water, power or dump station. Nice sunsets, and trails to hike. Bring your own water.
Located about 20 minutes off the 8, this site was mostly empty when I stayed. There are ample sites, firepits, pit toilets, and picnic tables. However, the bathrooms are spaced super far apart and are just simple pit toilets with hand sanitizer. Make sure to bring all your water and supplies, there aren't any stores very close and no water onsite. That being said, it was amazing to be so close to the petroglyphs for so cheap. Site was $8, or $6 if you have an Adventurepass and includes entrance to the site. Not much in the way of wildlife that I noticed around here.
This isn't the greatest campsite in the world, more of a glorified rest stop with a painted-rock exhibit. I got there late at night traveling from Texas to California and it was pretty easy to find. There are restrooms, dumpsters, and picnic tables.
Don't expect much from this place as it is funded by the honor system, but the solitude is nice and it makes for a decent stop to break up your road trip.
