Eating & Sleeping


There are two campgrounds in Mojave National Preserve. Campsites are available on a first come, first served basis. Campgrounds rarely are completely full. Roadside camping is permitted in areas that have traditionally been used for this purpose and have an existing fire ring. Group camping and Horse Camping are available by reservation only at the Black Canyon Group and Equestrian Campground

There is no lodging available within Mojave National Preserve. However, there are places to stay in nearby communities.

Restaurants, Grocery Stores, & Picnic Areas

There are no restaurants or grocery stores inside Mojave National Preserve, but nearby communities provide some services.

Mojave has two picnic areas:

  • Hole-in-the-Wall Picnic Area

Remember: help us keep wildlife wild. Never feed wild animals. Store food in hard-sided containers or in your vehicle. Carefully clean up all trash and leftovers, even small crumbs.
