Accessible from one of the few paved roads in Mojave National Preserve, the Hole in the Wall Campground is easily reachable in any vehicle. These sprawling sandy expanses are surrounded by volcanic rock walls. You'll feel truly immersed in the desert landscape here. With 35 available campsites this campground is a great place to set up home base. The campground has fire rings, picnic tables, potable water, a dump station, and pit toilets. It also has the added bonus of being close to the popular Hole in the Wall Rings Trail. This is a short 1.5-mile hike that sends you scrambling through narrow passageways, holding on to rings built into the rock walls. Campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't worry about reservations. Just show up ready to explore the desert!

We visited for 2 days the 3rd week of October on our way from Flagstaff to LA. Check the weather reports for Goffs, CA to get closest to what the campground will experience. We had great weather: cool air and warm sun, light breezes until 2am the second night the wind woke us up.. There was enough phone signal to find out the winds were going to pick up from 15mph to 25mph with stronger gusts, so we finished packing up in the dark and headed out. The road in is paved all the way. The toilets were well stocked. The Rings trail was great fun, even for us in our 70’s. Do the trail clockwise, staring at the south end of the big dirt parking lot by the visitors center. The night sky was good, but affected by Las Vegas light.
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.
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
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 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!
