The vibe at Ricardo Campground
Drop some Ricardo Campground knowledge on us.
Used often as a one-night layover, this park is actually worth exploring. It's a great hiking area, with some slot-like canyons, fossils, and great spring flowers. And the setting for hundreds of old movies.
This is one of my favorite sites 2 hrs outside of LA!
Close enough so it's easy to convince friends to join for the weekend :)
It's so great for exploring. Lots of caves to wander into, and such crazy formations.
Found this place on Hipcamp when driving from Yosemite toward Death Valley. Perfect one-night stopover spot. Camp Sstes are nice (tho kinda close together), toilet was the cleanest I've ever used in a state park, and scenery is amazing. 👍👍
This campground was amazing and will hold lasting memories for us. The way the sites back up to their own private rock formations make the spots seem intimate. Hiking though the area is nice and offers a rich diversity of flora and fauna.
I camped at Ricardo Campground just recently during the winter. I went on a Sunday and stayed there for 3 days. No one was really there except for 2 other groups. The campground wasn’t difficult to find and there are a lot of campsites to choose from. It’s very peaceful and the hikes weren’t that long. The best part of the campground is that it’s really close to a lot of the trails and you can go off trail if you want to.
The weather was nice when I went but temperatures dropped to about 15F at night. So it’s best to bring comfy gear when you go camping. Also, it’s really dusty due to it being in the desert so make sure you bring a lot of wipes or thing to keep you clean if you don’t like the dust.
