Nothing like it

Second time staying here and it is excellent. Besides all the sand that is. There is a little bit of service at top of hill but anywhere else in kelso don’t expect to get any, so know where you’re going before entering Mojave. When you pull down Kelso dunes rd, stop at the first bathroom parking lot and that’s where you’ll enter. The hike up will take about 40 minutes to an hour and a half depending on fitness level, walk speed, etc. it’s just up and down dunes until you’re at the top. Although there is a no camp sign at entrance, people still do. There’s no markers on where to go to get to top of dune, so just follow where the majority of footsteps go, especially if you arrive at night like I did. Just bathroom at entrance but no other amenities. Overall great and I’d stay here again.
