Mid Hills Campground is at an elevation of 5,600 ft, so it provides amazing cool breezes. It’s also shrouded by pinyon pine and juniper trees for a greener, shadier environment than the surrounding desert. If you’re camping during the hot season, this would be a great retreat for cooler air and a break from the desert sun. The access road isn’t paved though, so don’t try this campground with a motorhome or trailer! In spite of a fire in 2005, there are still 13 beautiful campsites here, equipped with pit toilets, potable water, fire rings, and picnic tables. Set up camp here in the mountains for a chiller, more panoramic view of the preserve!

Mojave National Preserve is on of my favorite national parks! Mid Hills is an awesome campground as it's for tents only, is in the high desert (which means cooler temps and trees for shade). It's $12/night and is first come first served, but rarely fills up (holiday weekends are a little bit of a gamble, so be sure to get there on Friday evening). There is potable water spigots and vault toilets making this a great basecamp in the Mojave for all your adventures. The park is very spread out in terms of things to do, but there are some very unique places to see including the Kelso Dunes (45 min drive), the lava tube (1 hr drive from MH and partly on an unmarked 4x4 road), and Teutonia Peak trail (1 hr drive) in a lush desert landscape.
