Hole In The Wall Camping in the Mohave desert of California

A buddy of mine asked us to join his family and a friend for camping at the Hole In The Wall Camp Grounds in the Mohave desert of California.

From a web search, this looks nice but pretty much boon-docking from what we can tell.

Anyone have experience camping there?

Decent paved road all the way. Campsites had plenty of room and fairly level for my 36ft. MH. I call this dry camping in that you stay in imporved sites with tables, etc., but no hookups. As I recall there is a dump station. We stayed a couple of days on our way to Quartzite - where we do boondock. Have fun!

Been there with The Boy Scouts. It's you basic desert dry camping. Pay attention when driving around as it might seem hard pack but it could be a crust on top of sandy material underneath . Google search nearby Mitchell Caverns, they are pretty cool !

I may be heading there myself in January for first time. Sounds a bit like Redrock Canyon just past the city of Mojave. Have fun.

GMDavidson,

At Hole-in-the-wall, do you just pay when you get there at the little bldg, or the next morning? I don't feel like going to a BLM facility if I don't have to.

Thanks

As I recall, the Do-Rite Man comes around and collects.
It's pretty remote and when we were there Mitchell Caverns were closed due to lack of money.

I don't recall specifically how you pay since it been a couple of years. But I know that you don't have to go to the Visitors Center. If I recall correctly it's a self pay station at the campground.

Regarding similarities to Red Rock Canyon State Park, having been there many many times since the 70's, I prefer Red Rock Canyon. But I would go back to Hole in the Wall again. It was enjoyable and I'm afraid I'll miss something if I don't go to new places everytime I get the opportunity.
