Dry Camping in Desert Center

As we drove from Blythe we checked our resouces on the iPad and picked up there was an RV campground in Desert Center, CA.  So we took the exit and followed the path. What a wonderful surprise!  Can’t say enough nice things about them. Quiet, very clean, and the nicest people. We could stay inside the Lake Tamarisk Desert Resort with full hookups or go out back and dry camp in the Mojave for $20.  Since we were prepared for that we decided to give the girls a break and let them roam the desert.  We had it all to ourselves and had access to the clean bathrooms and pool a few steps inside the gate.  Warm sunshine and cool nights made for a perfect 2 day break.  Had a chance to rearrange the basement and do a couple chores inside.  Only ran the generator about 3 hours as we hated to break the silence any more than that.

This is a small town right next to Joshua Tree National Park so we will try to include it on the return trip.  This resort was built in the 60s for Airstream Land Yacht owners and has evolved into about 120 park models and the rest of the spaces are available for RVs with full hookups. Great winter location with ideal desert weather.
