Desert landscapes, volcanic cinder cones, pinyon-juniper woodlands, abandoned mines, Native American rock art, and California’s second highest sand dunes provide almost limitless opportunities for exploration in this 1.4 million-acre preserve. Three of North America’s major deserts—the Mojave, Great Basin, and Sonoran—come together in the preserve to form a huge transition zone. As in Death Valley to the north, wildlife is abundant if not always visible. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Owl Canyon, Calico Ghost Town, Afton Canyon, Hole-in-the-Wall, Black Canyon, Mid Hills, and Providence Mountain State Recreation Area.

We stayed at the Hole in Wall campground. It was located in a in very a strange but beautiful landscape. There isn't much shade and the wind in the spring can be intense. We went in mid March and the temps during the day could be on the warm side but at night the desert cooled down significantly. The campsites were nice, each had a table, restrooms and water were close. We were able to get around most of the preserve in our two wheeled car. However, it hadn't rained recently so that helped.
