Proposals for food service concession at Kelso Depot are now being accepted


The National Park Service (NPS) is now accepting proposals to operate a lunch counter food service at the historic Kelso Depot Visitor Center within Mojave National Preserve. This is a new Business Opportunity. The term of the new Concession Contract will be for ten (10) years.


Originally built as Union Pacific train station, the Kelso Depot was recently renovated and now serves as Mojave National Preserve’s Visitor Center. The 1920s-era lunch counter at the Depot was rebuilt as part of the renovation project, and the park is now seeking a private concession operator to serve meals there.


Kelso Depot Visitor Center is located 35 miles south of Interstate 15 at Baker on Kelbaker Road, and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 


Prospectus packages containing all the information needed to prepare a proposal are available at For a hard copy, contact Kim Gagliolo, Concession Management Analyst, Pacific West Region, Concession Management, 1111 Jackson Street, Suite 700, Oakland, California 94607
