Description

Big boulders and a few fire rings next to BLM Wilderness. Washboard road is slow but worth it once you get here! Lots of evidence of rabbits and coyotes/bobcats! Keep an eye on your critters! Great place to photograph. Look for two windmills and boulders, turn towards the boulders. There are several camping options. The road is good enough for our 2WD Sprinter van to negotiate. Enjoy!

Forgot to add, no cell service on Verizon, T-Mobile, one bar intermittently with AT&T but it was super spotty so wouldn’t count on it.

Very, very bumpy road from the visitor’s center at Hole in the Wall to this spot in our 24 foot skoolie but we made it just fine. It’s not a impassable road by any means, even for low-riders, but it has those ridges these desert dirt roads get that shake you up a lot. Jeeps and trucks zooming down the road didn’t seem to feel the same way but we’re in a bus and those are bumpy on the best roads. We stayed two nights and didn’t have much company. Cool sunset and rocks to climb, heard some owls and saw a turkey vulture. Fire rings and some cool “caves” formed by slanting rocks. Some nice shade in the afternoon. Worth the bumpy ride in with a big rig if you’re going to stay for a bit or if you for some reason have to pass through that way. Cheap gas 50 miles across the border in Primm. And if you head that way there’s an insane amount of Joshua Trees along the road, more dense than those in the National Park, though not as tall and it looks like one side had been burned recently.

The road getting in was rough but not a problem if you take it slow. Made it in our 24ft skoolie. Beautiful views from the area and a bunch of rocks to climb. Also not hard to find shade amongst the rocks if it gets too hot.

good sites, a few flat places, easy enough to get to, rocks help block wind. harder to climb rocks than other reviews say and I'm a 22 yo rock climber but still doable. definitely worth it for sunrise or sunset. there are mice at the site that will come up to you, they are not timid and will try to grab food. heard but didnt see coyotes.

Amazing place to stay!
There are 4-5 camping sites around the rock formation. The road was easy for our 2WD.
Would really recommend everyone to stay here!

Road is very washboard and tedious but worth it. Not much traffic. Look for the windmills. About 4 spots total but probably best for just one group. Better vibe. The rocks have a great view on top for sunrise/stargazing. Go around the back, furthest side from the road, and look for shrubs growing on the side of the boulders. There's a pretty obvious route up. Didn't find it hard at all. When you get up the first bit you have to crouch under or squeeze through some rocks. As long as your not obese you should be fine. Bring a light if its for sunset. Amazing stars. Some trash on one side by fire pit.

The road to get here with our travel trailer was no joke, we drove about 4 mph, but we made it, and it's spectacular! No cell service.

Road grader is out right now. Maybe they will smooth out this portion too. made it slowly in our 25 ft View.

Definitely worth the slow going road. We were the only ones here and it is gorgeous. Down trees close enough near by for a fire. Fire pits provided but that’s pretty much it. A house in the distancewas shooting guns but nothing obnoxious and they stopped before dusk. Road was rough getting up here even in our 4x4 high clearance but still probably doable without

The drive in had some mildly soft, bumpy roads. 4WD not necessary but never bad to have. Camp site is right up against the boulders which made for a beautiful sunset/sunrise. A few spots to choose from. We chose the spot with a fire pit under and overhanging rock as it was most level. Ground is quite packed and rocky, so tent campers with steaks to pound, be prepared. Very quite and peaceful. Would definitely camp here again. (Photos of our set up and the other 4 fire pit sites)
