The Fresno Canyon that Fresno Vista looks out upon provides glimpses into the history of the earth through the exposed strata, and volcanic rocks and boulders abound in this campsite. And if looking at rocks doesn’t appeal, the boulder field is a whole lot of fun to climb and explore. Don’t expect anything other than picnic tables and a lot of open land as far as facilities go, though.

Fresno Vista is an absolutely gorgeous site with complete privacy and views into a small canyon. You will need a high-clearance vehicle to access this site. My 2WD Jeep did great despite a very rugged access road (go slowly), but check with Rangers on current road conditions for any site in this park. It is extremely remote and rugged. Take a full size spare tire (or 2: help is far, far away). This is desert camping so take plenty of water and be sure the rangers know where you will be hiking. Safety should not be taken lightly in the desert. The rewards are high though, with beautiful scenery and complete solitude. Leave your dogs at home lest they become mountain lion bait. Plan to have at least 2 nights in the park to make it worth it.
