Location: Mojave Desert, between Barstow, CA and Baker, CA
Detailed directions will be made available selectively, to prevent any bad actors from attending. DM @BtcPins on Twitter or @Btc_Pins on Telegram for the password to access https://btcpins.com/camping-details/.
4 Wheel Drive vehicles recommended. The gravel road is not reliably maintained. We have had issues with sedans getting stuck on the road before.
What you need to bring
Everything. This is not a campground. It’s open desert. Nothing is being provided for you.
Recommend you bring: something to sit on, something to sleep on, shade, food & drink, dishes, TP & shovel. Bring at least 2 bundles of firewood.
This is BLM land so OK to bring firearms for target shooting.
Closest restrooms are a 30min drive to Baker. Plan accordingly.
Tents aren’t really necessary unless you want privacy or a place to get out of the sun. There are hardly any flying insects and minimal wildlife. I typically forego the tent and sleep on a cot under the stars unless the weather calls for rain or heavy winds.
Weather this time of year is typically 80s during the day and 50s at night. Search “Baker, CA” on your weather app for forecasts.
What will be there
A fire pit w/ cooking grates
Some pop-ups for shade. Bring one too, if you can.
Designated shooting area
Limited internet service. Depending on your phone/carrier, you will probably get cell service. It’s not far from the towers along the 15.
