Camping: Camping is permitted. Gathering wood for campfires is limited to dead and down materials. Live vegetation can not be cut. Help BLM preserve California's fragile deserts. Please park your vehicle and set up camp in previously disturbed sites.
This is in a remote part of the desert. Please pack accordingly. Bring extra fuel, water and food. Our campsite is on a "first come, first serve" basis. It consists of cabins which are kept up only by the people who choose to stay there.
Practice "Leave No Trace" principles. Plan ahead. Pack It In Pack It Out. Properly dispose of what you can't pack out. Leave what you find.
