Gorgeous campground with an easy hike to the arch. No water available bring everything you need with you close town is 29 palms.
Visited towards the end of June campground was clean. Spots were clean close together but bushes separated sites and allowed some privacy. Stayed here due to the proximity to the park and having electric and water hookups which was great in the desert.
The campground has well spaced spots nice bathrooms but horrible pay showers, definitely bring your shower shoes. The rv spots have electric hookups but no water or sewer. Very warm in summer no fires allowed. If you are looking to explore the caves March or October is when they are fully open. The park gets quite busy on weekends, parking lots at the trails are usually full by 10am, make sure you get an early start.
You are allowed to camp on the road to the hot springs, there are several pull outs making it easy however there is no camping past a certain point (signs stating) and not at the springs. There is a pit toilet in the parking lot for the hot springs but not where you can camp. We were able to camp with our 19 foot trailer but I don’t think I would recommend anything larger.
This campground is labeled as equestrian however anyone can stay. Great place close to Frenchman lake. Has pasture area for horses. Spots are well spaced out and never filled up while we stayed for 4 days. Tons of horseflies late morning and early afternoon. Pit toilets, and drinking water available. Easy to stay with trailers and rvs. Road is dirt/gravel on way in but easy to navigate.
Great free spot on Snag lake. Close to sardine lake and in the gold lake basin. Caught a bunch of catfish but no luck catching trout here. Not a lot of people camping here but it is first come first served.
Campground is right on Gold Lake which is great for fishing, boating, and hiking. Lots of other beautiful lakes in the area. Campsites aren’t super close to each other which is nice but it is first come first served and can get pretty popular in the summer especially on weekends.
Stayed here off season in the fall passing through the area. Beautiful but gets pretty chilly at night. Only stayed here for sleeping but campground was pretty empty. Nice free camping.
Love staying here. Lots to do nearby mostly obsidian collection and fishing. Make sure if you are wanting to collect you get a free permit in town before heading out. The road can be a little rough to the campground with some deep ruts. We were able to pull our 19 foot camper up the road and into the campground not sure if we would try with anything larger. Campground is in the shade which is great in the summer and has a creek running through.
Beautiful area but spots fill up quickly I highly recommended making a reservation. We were lucky get a great spot mid week due to someone canceling. Camp host is very nice and bathrooms are very clean but no showers.
Campground is beautiful. Spots are first come first served and can fill up quickly. Small lake perfect for kayak fishing.
Beautiful campground not too far off of 395. Stayed one night passing through. Free campground with pit toilets. Stayed on a Thursday lots of spaces open. Was able to back in our 19 foot trailer. Road in was a dirt road fine for the most part with a few ruts.
Beautiful campground not on top of anyone no amenities but great recreation and fishing. Pit toilettes only.
Beautiful and close to downtown Calistoga however the campgrounds were infested with poison oak. Maybe just the time of year and because of so much rain this year? Not sure but it was thick and lush everywhere.
A little pricey but beautiful! Close to the town of Trinidad. Nestled in the redwoods and absolutely gorgeous.
One of my favorite campsites off of 395. Easy to hike to the “falls” from the campground. I car camped but saw plenty of trailers there.
