Accessible from one of the few paved roads in Mojave National Preserve, the Hole in the Wall Campground is easily reachable no matter what vehicle you’re driving. These sprawling sandy expanses 4,000 feet up are surrounded by volcanic rock walls and will make you feel truly immersed in the desert landscape. With 35 available campsites equipped with fire rings, picnic tables, potable water, a dump station and pit toilets, this campground is a great place to set up home base. It has the added bonus of being close to the popular Hole in the Wall Rings Trail, a short 1.5 mile hike that sends you scrambling through narrow passageways, holding on to ringbolts built into the rock walls. Campsites are a first-come first-serve basis, so don’t worry about reservations. Just show up ready to explore the desert!

The winds can be particularly high in the Mojave Desert, so if you'll be sleeping in a tent, make sure that you have strong stakes to hold your tent down!

Hole-in-the-Wall is a great little campground in the Mojave NP. It does get a bit windy as another Hipcamper noted. This campground is pretty exposed and has no trees, but if you have a tent you can camp at Mid Hills Campground where trees are plentiful in the back portion of the campground. Also neither campground has firewood for sale, so be sure to bring your own!

This campsite is really the perfect campsite. The views are gorgeous, the hiking nearby is on point and the campsite is kept clean. As other people have said, the wind does tend to pick up, so we found car camping to be the best option for us. That said, the stars are breadth taking and a real treat.

Hole-in-the-wall you are sleeping in the desert. No shade. We were there in October and weather was fantastic. About 25% full. We were fully contained so did not try the water or facilities. Close to some great hiking although we found the trailhead of Ring hike hard to find so ended up doing it backwards

Hipcamper Liz

Beautiful and remote. Make sure you pay attention to weather, as the first time we tried to stay here it was close because of floods! When we did finally get out there, it was amazing, and we watched a storm pass in the distance, with hug lightning lighting up the sky.
