Mojave Narrows Regional Park

We spent last weekend at Mojave Narrows Regional Park camping with friends.  This is a hidden wetland/small lakes gem in the middle of the desert.

We would recommend this county park during the fall and spring.  The temperature varied from a low of 25 to a high of 42 during our visit in mid-February.  There was a storm passing over and we received some rain and plenty of wind (about 20-30 mph).  A couple of days after we visited, they received a couple of inches of snow.

There were a fair amount of birds in/near the lake:  pelicans, canadian geese, turkey vultures, and ducks.  We did not see any mammals or reptiles.  Many fisherman were catching fish – not sure what type – with crows hanging out near the fishermen.

They have a decent play area for kids.  The water feature is only available during the summer months.

Many of the sites during the winter have no grass.  It seemed like our site (#14) was in a low area with rain runoff pooling in the area.  We didn’t have any issues on the paved part of the site.  Picture taken showing our site and a view south showing location of restroom/shower building.

Location:  Victorville, San Bernardino County, California  It is about 7 miles (about 15 minutes)  from the I-15 and Bear Valley Road exit.

RV sites:  there are about 40 RV sites with full hookups.  There are a 8 “dry” RV sites as well as about 30 tent sites.

Wifi/cell reception:  wifi is not provided.  Our ATT phone had 3 bars and LTE the entire visit.

Negative:  The train tracks are close by.  In our site, I only felt the rumble of the trains once all weekend.  They blow their whistle several miles away and some might hear them.  In the RV at night with windows/vents closed, the trains did NOT wake us up.

Cost: $40 per night.
