Canyon Walls for Days

We got a spot right up against the canyon wall. I definitely recommend that since it give you shade earlier than the other spots. We went in the middle of the week so it was nice and quiet. Also on a full moon so the crevasses were lit up through the night. Absolutely beautiful place to stop in.…

Remote and quiet

If you like to stay off the beaten path and away from crowds. The this is a spot to check out. Stayed memorial weekend. We were one out of about 5 campers in the area.

. They have primitive bathrooms . No potable water. So bring water. It is buggy. Ants, nats, mosquitos. Look for spots with shade…

Quiet, secluded, star gazing

Great place to dry camp(boondock). Love camping out here. Most of all it's free.

Got more than we expected!

Needed a spot off 395, pulled in didn't have to go too far and found a spot. We arrived at night so we did not have a lay of the land but the stars were amazing and the sunrise was on point too. Neighbors near by but very quiet. I'll be back to this spot.

So cool!

Super fun area! Just off the highway and easy to get to. The volcano in the distance is beautiful and fossil falls is so unique…lots of room to explore the lava flows. The campground has fire pits and a picnic bench. The bathrooms are pretty decent for pit toilets. Good place to stop!

Super lit camp spot

We needed a place close to 395 and this was the SPOT. The fossil falls themselves were legit, and our site was cozy. It was a bit windy and dusty, but still had a great time.

Trona pinnacles

Aside from it being hot well because it is the desert. It was fun the kids enjoyed it and I did too. It was cool to see were they have shot some movies one being the planet of the apes. Just remember when your driving out here to visit the pinnacles bring water and sweat rags it's a lot of walking…

Very clean

Lots of sites but not a lot of privacy they’re very close together. Very clean campground good bathrooms and drinkable water available from a well. Be aware there are a lot of wild burros who will come around just keep your distance. Easily accessible two roads to get there make sure to fuel up…

Cool Visuals But Hot & Windy

We came through RRC in early May, 2021. Weather can be unpredictable but it was super hot and very windy.

FYI - Google maps tried to bring us to a non-spot a few miles southwest of the actual site.

RRC is an interesting spot - fairly well spread out along a single road which was fairly busy…

Beautiful, but horse poop

The hike to Kennedy meadows campground was wonderful and scenic and the campground itself is in a nice location. The only downfall is the trail and campground is shared for horses and there is POOP EVERYWHERE. Somewhere midway through the hike there is a trail leading to Sharon Lake. Very isolated…

Felt like I was in a sci-fi flick

Really enjoyed staying at the Pinnacles over the weekend. Free BLM dispersed camping here, so bring everything you need and take everything with you when you leave.

The landscape is like no other. Felt like Skywalker or Spock was going to walk around a formation at any minute. Very cool vibes out…

Overall super cool spot

On another planet

Camping here was totally worth it! If dispersed camping is what you’re looking for you’re in luck. We drove in and found camping pretty easily on a Saturday evening. 360 views no matter what spot you choose. Definitely plan on setting up camp before sunset so you can get a good spot to watch from…
