Discover Calico Ghost Town Campground


Calico Ghost Town Campground is ideally situated so you can explore some of the best parts of California and Nevada. This RV park is located within the Calico Ghost Town, an old silver mining town from the late 1800s. This abandoned town has been revitalized as a tourist attraction and is now open to be explored with various shops and restaurants, making this a unique place to camp. The campground allows pets, so you can bring your dog along to explore this spooky ghost town. There are a few activities to consider outside of Calico, as the surrounding rugged terrain makes an ideal place for hiking and mountain biking.

When you book an RV in San Bernardino County, you'll be close to the small cities of Yermo and Barstow which provide some conveniences. Las Vegas and Los Angeles, two of the most exciting cities in the country, are both less than a two-hour drive away and contain some of the best sights in the region. There are also lots of nature parks and mountains to explore in the local vicinity.

The Great Outdoors

Yermo campers will love exploring some of the gorgeous nearby parks. Saddleback Butte State Park is one of the best in the state and features a rock formation that rises over 3,500 feet, which affords visitors stunning views of the Mojave Desert. This dusty state park is ideal for hiking, and several trails lead either in a loop around the butte or take you to the top. This state park also features a visitor's center, where you can learn about the geology and history of the area. Another popular activity is nature watching, and common critters you may see include desert tortoises, kangaroo rats, and various species of snake.

While you're camping at Calico Ghost Town Campground, you'll want to visit the Mojave National Preserve. One of the nearest parks to the campground, this national preserve consists of over a million acres of sand dunes, mesas, and valleys near the Nevada state line. There are various trails for hikers to explore that will take you past lakes, through dense Joshua tree forests, and much more. This park is ideal for nature watching, and during the spring, there's an abundance of wildflowers which grow up the hills providing spectacular scenery. There are also a variety of creatures living here, including bats, bighorn sheep, and coyotes.

If you're looking for a place to cool down after exploring the desert, consider a trip to Lake Havasu State Park. This beautiful state park provides different scenery than what's found in the many other nearby parks and features crystal-clear water and palm trees. Lake Havasu is a popular year-round destination for water sports, and popular activities include water skiing, kayaking, and canoeing. Swimming and sunbathing are also possible activities, thanks to extensive sandy beaches. Lake Havasu is known as one of the best fishing destinations in the region, and bass fishing is especially good, so make sure you bring your rod along.

Exploring the City

During your Yermo camping trip, you'll no doubt want to plan a trip to Los Angeles. The sprawling city has some magical attractions for the whole family, including the Los Angeles Zoo. This zoo covers over 140 acres in central Los Angeles and is home to a plethora of animals including Asian elephants, bat-eared foxes, and fossa. There are also botanical gardens to enjoy, and open-air bird gardens, where you can learn to make an attractive bird garden in your own backyard.

If you're looking for beautiful views of Los Angeles, consider visiting The Griffith Observatory. This famous Art Deco observatory is located on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood and provides visitors with stunning views of the L.A. skyline, as well as views of the Hollywood sign. As well as these views, the observatory has public telescopes available for use where tourists can gaze into the night sky and discover the hidden wonders of space.

You may want to soak up some of Los Angeles' culture during your RV rental vacation, in which case, you should visit the Santa Monica Pier. One of the most famous piers in the country, this boardwalk features an array of amazing shops, restaurants, and attractions. There's even a theme park that features classic fairground rides and an aquarium with a variety of wildlife including sharks, crabs, and starfish.
