Barstow Calico KOA
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We stayed one night here whilst travelling from LA to Vegas in a hired RV.

The camp was ideal for our needs; easy to get to, friendly & helpful staff, spotless restrooms and good wifi access.

We had a great pitch on the edge with a view out across the rugged desert towards the hills and Calico Ghost Town. It was great to sit in the sunset imaging all that the hills had seen.

I stayed here with my wife and daughter as part of a US road trip during which we were tent camping.
This campground was one of my favorites. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities and bathrooms were very clean.
The pool was an added bonus in the heat. I would reccommend this to other people and I would stay again.

We spent one night at the Barstow/Calico KOA; we hadn't made reservations. We were able to get a spot, but the campground filled up fast after we got there. Our RV site had a great view over the fiels to the hills but had a terrible wi-fi connection. Moving closer to the main building helped a bit. The pool is heated but still was cold. My husband and 8-year old rented "Banana Bikes" and rode all over the campground. The campground was very clean and fairly quiet. Nearby was Peggy Sue's 50's Diner and Calico Ghost Town.

I camped here one night as a last minute decision driving to Vegas from Malibu. The weather had gotten pretty bad while camping in Malibu and decided to just head back. A friend and i hd decided to find a spot and camp for the night and see how what the weather was doing by the next day. KOA was the closest spot right off the highway. We got a sopt before the office closed and the lady was really nice. We weren't able to get any wood but there was a few gas stastion across the freeway that sold some.
The showers there were really clean and by far the hottest camp shower I'd ever taken. I'd been wet from the weather in Malibu so being able to take a nice long hot shower right across from my tent was nice. It was a nice place but when the wind kicked up it turned into a dust bowl. Def not a good spot for the windy season.

It is a long drive through the desert from California to Las Vegas. Barstow, California is a nice little town in the middle of nowhere and Barstow KOA is a great place to stay for a break from the heat and heavy traffic.

Each site has some nice bushes and trees - a welcome site after so much unrelenting desert. The facilities are sparkling clean and extensive including a nice pool.

The free WiFi and cable worked perfectly without problems. Gas, restaurants and groceries are very close by and convenient.

The campground is very near the freeway but the traffic noise is minimal and somewhat diminished by songbirds in the trees within the park.

We stayed in a large 5th wheel RV and had plenty of room. The campground has Kamping Kabins and tent space as well.
