Basic campground and nice view

This is an uber-basic free campground with a nice view of a large Pleistocene lava field to the north and easy access to Crack-in-the-Ground to the south. The road in can be a little rough but us generally passable to 2WD vehicles. Overall a nice spot.

Surprisingly nice BLM campground

High camp with great views. Road from Christmas Valley is all washboard until Crack park, then it gets better. For BLM, it’s nice. Cold May morning at 17 degrees.

Great views!

We were the only ones there, so peaceful. The views up top we're incredible. Sites are good size and bathroom was clean.

Only downside is the road getting there is VERY bumpy.

Remote campground with amazing views

Spent two nights in this great isolated spot- the first night we were the only ones there! The second night we were joined by several people who had car tents but we never felt like we were on top of one another. Wonderful flat area at the top of a hill that boast amazing views of the valley- gave us one of the best sunsets and moon rises that we have ever seen! There is a central pit toilet for all of the sites to share.

There is a fire tower a short distance away from the sites that you can walk up to the base of and hike around. Sites are also close drive to "Crack-in-the-Ground", which is a fascinating lava formation that makes for a good spot to hike around for half a day.

The road up to the site is washboard, so be prepared for a bumpy drive. There is a small store at Christmas Valley before the turnoff that has the essentials, including an emergency eyeglass repair kit when my husband was head butted by the dog. Oops!
