“A refreshing oasis in the Mojave”

A refreshing oasis in California's Mojave Desert, the Barstow Calico KOA is conveniently located midway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The campground is focused on providing a pleasant and restful change from the rigors of a day on the road. Kids can work off some pent up energy on our fun bikes, playground with climbing wall or in the family pool. Our four-legged guests delight in discovering acres of desert to explore. This KOA features 70-ft. pull-thrus with dividing hedges, full hookups, free cable and Wi-Fi, cabins, as well as tent sites and our first tepee. Free shuttle service to Calico Ghost Town, a former 1880's silver-mining town, with seven fun-packed festival weekends each year, is available for guests. The Calico Mountain Trails, just 3 miles from the park, are a playground for off-highway vehicles, rockhounders and hikers. The Calico Early Man Archaeological Site is also nearby.

Great site for one or two days stay one your way to something else. Facility was clean and great to have a swimming pool after a hot day. Only down side were the metered showers.

DO NOT STAY HERE! This place is ON THE FREEWAY! The showers are disgusting. The bathroom cleaning log was from 7 months ago! HORRIBLE FREEWAY NOISE AND SEWER SMELL. Luckily I only had to stay 1 night.

We got in late... real late. There was no way to appreciate the scenery. After popping up our insulated ice shelter tent (highly recommended) and firing the portable propane heater (necessity) we settled down for a comfortable sleep. November in Calico isn’t exactly tent weather, but there was 1 other set up when we arrived.

Beautiful views. The highway noise isn’t that bad. Morning walk was wonderful out into the desert. Nobody around for miles. The untouched mountains in the distance.

5 stars for spotless bathrooms. Could only find one working shower which we didn’t use, but it’s worth mentioning. It was metered. There’s plenty of wildlife for the dog to chase and he really enjoyed his time here.

$40 for a primitive site is most definitely on the high end of the spectrum and really felt that for this time of year, it should be discounted and incentivized. $30 would have been a deal, $25 would have been most appropriate.

The campground itself is nice and normal for a KOA. However, if you turn on the freeway ramp instead of the service road, like we did, and you come in from the opposite way on the service road, you’ll see an uncomfortable amount of abandoned shacks. The stay in the campground was nice though.
