The vibe at Mid Hills Campground
Drop some Mid Hills Campground knowledge on us.
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.
I usually like to start or end my long road trips with a quick over night in Mid Hills Campground because of the secluded nature of it. It does have water and toilets so that a plus for being such a remote campground.
The main perk for me is the lack of light pollution, so you can see so many stars on a clear night.
