Great camp ground surrounded in volcanic rock formations. No wind. Dirt road to get in is not bad.

Great location to stop! Windy and an okay Verizon connection. Two Verizon bars at my site

Gorgeous designated campsite on the way to Death Valley. Very remote, windy and peaceful. Only two other Vanlifers but within distance, can’t see or hear them.

Fire rings and picnic tables at every site.
Bathrooms near by.

Road is super easy, just take it slow. Not suitable for RV’s.

Great cell service - 5G full bars on T-mobile
Great find! Would definitely stay again.

Remote camping. Rugged and beautiful. Great place for star gazing.
Pit toilet is clean and the water via a hand pump is clean. $6 honor system fee to overnight. The short hike to the falls is well worth the time. Bring your fire wood with you if an outdoor fire is in your plans, none available in the vicinity.

I can’t believe how many times we’ve driven past this and had no idea about this amazing hike into lava flow and ancient dry river bed. Nice basic campsites. A couple of other campers but quiet and secluded. Don’t skip the hike - only 1/4 mile from camp!

Large campsites; pretty far apart from each other. $6 per night. There is a toilet onsite.

We where the only ones here. Very remote camp, smelly toilett and great walk to the dry river bed. Really enjoyed it here.

nice camping, basic. Windy! So better hide behind the rocks. Self pay in a box (6$). Dirt road to reach, we were with 27ft long RV.

Great BLM camping site, $6 per night, water at entrance and pit toilets. easy to get to with trailer. Short .2 miles to the lava falls, fantastic place for life to climb around.

Bumpy dirt road to get back here but plenty of room for a big rig with awesome views and fun hiking around the “falls”

Full LTE service with T-Mobile in day use parking.

As others have described. $6 (or $3 with one of the lifetime passes), clean pit toilet, water available. There is one ADA site down a little path from the bathroom.

Definitely check out the Fossil Falls path. There are no fossils and no falls - rather, it is the rocks left over from volcanic activity and floods.

Nice spot to camp for the night. Check out Fossil Falls Canyon.

Decent spot if you’re traveling up and down the corridor here. There wasn’t anyone else here when I stayed. I had 4 bars LTE in my phone and 4 bars of 4G on my Verizon hot spot (without the antenna booster). I was able to work remotely all day and stream in the evening.

It’s very hot, exposed, and windy here. I didn’t see any envelopes to pay but it’s supposed to be $6/day I think. I saw a bathroom at the day use area but not anywhere else

Report Check-In

Day use area with 2 picnic tables, pit toilet.

nice spot on the way to whitney...high desert scenery, nothing fancy but worked great as an overnight stay...freaking windy

Easy scenic access off #395 with lots of sites with fire rings and pit toilets. Saw a water pump near entrance but didn’t test it $6 beautiful black lava rocks strewn across the plain We were the only ones here on this cold rainy night. Dusting of snow in the surrounding hills higher elevation

Really nice place with firepits.

It worked out perfect for me. Heading north I knew I wouldn’t make Bishop by dark and this place was great. About a mile off highway 395, it was quiet, safe, free, and had pit toilets, picnic tables/fire pits.
