We really like Mojave National Preserve. There are two campgrounds, Hole-In-The-Wall and Mid Hills.  Hole-In-The-Wall can easily fit big rigs but Mid Hills tends to be more for tenters. A small RV or camper can easily fit there though. And we found some “OH SO GREAT” boondocking spots but know we could never get our big rig to them. Oh yeah, we need an EarthRoamer. Maybe one day!! Oh yeah!

Lots of hiking and lots of 4WD’ing. The visitors center is almost an hour drive from the Hole-In-The-Wall campground and is housed in the old Kelso Train Depot. A really neat place to visit and watch the trains come by. They have a really interesting museum and the building is beautiful!

Comments: Wow, loved this place. Plenty of big rig sites, flat open area but with a remote feeling and tons of hiking. Gotta do “The Rings” trail.  My husband made me do it three times. Lots of fun.
