    I realize that April 1st is Easter Sunday but would anyone be interested in meeting up the last weekend in March to explore the Mojave?

    Our kid's Spring break this year is that week so I have the second half of that week free. I'm thinking Thurs 3/29 - Sat 3/30 or Sun 4/1.

    There is 2 campgrounds I've found. Hole In The Wall Campground and Mid Hills Campground. Both are dry camping, $12/night, pit toilets, water, & fire rings.

    As mentioned in the tittle, things to do include Hole In The Wall Trail, Mitchell Caverns, Lava Tube Trail, and a few other things.

    Any takers?

    Right on @Sarge.

    Looks like so far there may be another 1 - 2 campers interested as well.

    Do you have the actual address of the CG and if I get in early is there a certain spot I should get?

    Mojave National Preserve
    43637 Black Canyon Rd
    Baker, CA 92309

    That’s what the website says...

    Not sure about spot since I’ve never been there but there’s 4 or 5 of us coming.

    That address doesn't show up on Google Maps nor Waze navigation...

    The address you posted is 65 miles from the CG on google maps

    The Hole in The Wall visitor center address is:
    1 Black Canyon Rd
    Essex, CA 92332

    The CG on Google Maps is near by the visitor center:
    Essex, CA 92332

    That is why I was asking... Wanted to make sure we were going in the right direction.

    The easiest way to get directions I’ve found is to search “Hole In The Wall Campground” in your Google Maps or IPhone Maps and it should take you right to it.
