Quiet and private disbursed sites

Easy to find. A pleasant spot with 360 views of burnt Joshua forest. Low clearance vehicle ok.

An experience that will never be forgotten

The best camping experience I’ve ever had. Sites are nothing more than fire rings and small clearings among the various desert flora that stretch for miles. Perfect for those who want a truly primitive experience. Rock formations litter the hundreds of miles of flat desert providing countless…

  • Rocky terrain.
  • They look so small from this distance.

Quiet desert spot

Pleasantly surprised by the well maintained spots, cleanliness and very quiet. We just stopped for a night while passing through. Easy to find and get to. My son loved all the rocks for his RC crawler.

One of my favs

I love this place so much. It’s far enough from town to have an amazing but close to a gas station if needed.

Not a ton of traffic at night. Sadly this place was victim of the recent fire and a lot of the awesome Joshua trees are black and look dead. I still love it.

Just when you think there won't be anything...along comes Afton Canyon

As I travel, I really have no set destination.  Something will pop up.  As I left Tucson early that day, I started getting tired, and there wasn't much.  When suddenly, Afton Canyon pops up.  After 4 miles of 'fun' gravel, I arrived...and was the ONLY one here.  It was pretty darn warm (hot), but…

  • An overview of the entrance, after about 4 miles of gravel road.  Not a soul to be seen....
  • Hello.....only a few came
  • As you can can get right next to them....POWERFUL!!

Desert solitude

I stayed 1 night (5/7/21) in a roof top tent on my Jeep. I didn’t see anyone else at any of the other sites that I checked out & only had one vehicle drive by in the morning as I was packing up. Very quiet & peaceful, though it was quite windy throughout the night. Lots of burnt Joshua…

Diamond in the Desert

Incredible spot. The coordinates from this page took me right to what I think was the best campsite, although there were several more further up the road. A couple sites have big jumbo rocks, which were great wind protection and perfect to climb up on to watch the sunset. Lots of beautiful joshua…

Desert Quiet

I arrived at night and was quiet with only 2 other campers. There is about 7 spots with fire rings. RV's wont be able to make it in deep. Smaller RV's can get creative around the cross mount. Overall, great spot. I will stop by again. Next time I will get in during the day. It can feel a bit like a…

Hidden Gem

Great place for desert boondocking! Very quiet and amazing stars! Joshua Trees all around. Coyotes howling at night. Watch out for cacti which are enormous! A huge fire left a large area of this part of the preserve damaged but there are still some spots where the Joshua Trees are un damaged. It’s…

Pull off on a long boring highway

A place to camp that's covered, and tables. It’s very affordable so it fills up fast, people leave trash everywhere... so people please clean up after yourself. The road is super easy to get to. If you strike out there are plenty of other free spots on the side of the road such as cima... so much…

Wonderful Gem

Stayed here for a couple nights just before the new year. There were many spots with fire rings to camp at when you turn onto the dirt road and a couple at the beginning with picnic tables, but the spots where you really want to be are all the way down the path if your car can make it there. My…

Secluded Star Gazing

Wonderful dispersed free camping in Mojave National Preserve. Find the first road adjacent to the white cross memorial. We arrived after sunset and we reluctant to drive too far down the uneven and non-maintained dirt road, but were rewarded with an outstanding campsite for our risky persistence!…

Mojave River Camping

Afton Canyon Campground is one of the hidden gems for spring and fall camping in the Mojave desert. The campground is located 4 miles from I-15 down a dirt road. The dirt road is easily accessed with any type of car. The campground is a first come first service basis and cost $6 a night. I believe…

Excellent BLM Camp

We drove in on our Prius and the 3mi dirt road sure was bumpy! No issues though, and the campground was great. We only stayed one night since we were just passing through, but we will definitely be stopping here next time we're driving through.

Nice little camp

This is in a pretty spot. Much better than other camps right off highway. Trash cans were overflowing and lots of trash everywhere.
