Those of you that have been following my blog know I don’t usually pay for a campsite in the desert. Like my dad, I am a cheap (I mean thrifty) Norwegian. However, when I was looking for a place to camp while exploring the desert north of Barstow, California I came across a listing for Owl Canyon Campground operated by the BLM. Even though dispersed camping (aka Boondocking) was available in the immediate area, I thought we could splurge and spend the $6 per night the BLM was asking. Our $6 campsite included a shelter, picnic table and campfire ring. Pit toilets (no thanks), garbage and a cool playground were also part of the package. I am here to tell you the view from our RV was worth every penny. Exploring the mud cave I discovered upstream from our campsite wasn’t bad either. Value added camping, one of the best adventures in RVing!
