Afton Canyon Natural Area
This is a small BLM campground located in one of the few places where the Mojave River flows above ground. The river is not visible from the campground but the presence of water is an ideal breeding ground for mosquitos – don’t forget bug repellent!
The campground has tables with shelters, fire rings, grills, trash cans and pit toilets.
None of the sites are marked as accessible but most are usable.
The dirt road to the campground is about 3.5 miles long and in fair condition. There are two short but very steep hills. Many of the campsites have posts lining both sides the parking area which may make it hard to park long RVs. Campground
