Let's be sure about this. If you're a tent camper, then just know you're going to roast between the months of May and October. The day times are brutal and the nights are barely cooler. We hit it in late May and had to find indoor fun between 10am and 7pm, returning to our campsite only when the sun began it's stunning descent behind the mountains. Even though half the sites have covered areas, don't be mistaken that you'll have shade, or that shade will be cool.

But once twilight hits, you'll grok the magic of the desert. Convenient location with very hikable mountains nearby... just attempt them in the early morning. Or anytime not so summer-like. The site itself is a nice slice of desert, beautiful and dry. 

Curses on the RV who pulled in past midnight, tugged by a mega-truck that kept it's engine running for a good 25 minutes trying to fit into their spot. Textbook rude camp etiquette. An easy way to wake everyone up.

But the rest of the camp was friendly and courteous. We had site 41. No cover, but it wouldn't have mattered in that heat. Bathrooms were decent and well placed, although quite a few were not open. One garbage bin at the entrance of the camp.
