We have been here to Calico Ghost Town more than once and every time we discover it just as enjoyable. Just a couple of miles from Barstow, California, this campground is really a pleasant oasis inside a rather desolate area. Depart from the I-40, you might not know Calico exists aside from a couple of billboard signs and also the CALICO written up upon the distant mountainside.

This living ghost town was redone years back from the Knott’s family. An old silver mining town, Calico has history to understand more about. A train ride, mine tour, shootout, shops, saloon, cemetery, various old structures and characters in historical dress offer an experience that make You are feeling as if you‘re section of the hustle and bustle of the century ago. There will be seasonal events here also. We have enjoyed
both Easter and also the kickoff towards the Holiday Season here which included festive music, caroling, complimentary hot cocoa and cookies for many and in fact a tree lighting by Santa himself !
The campground is adjacent towards the town. Campground fees gain you admittance straight into the town. Day use visitors have to pay a nominal fee to visit the town. The campground has many full, partial and non-hookup sites. Counting on your requirements, chances are high there‘s a site open to you. Sites are fairly barren and close together, but do offer protection coming from the winds that often come together with a desert visit, as Calico is nestled straight into the base from the mountains. All sites offer picnic tables, while only some offer fire pits. Interior roads are paved in certain areas, dirt in others. All site pads are dirt, so we found those inside the A loop as being most level. A brief walk on the trail leads you straight into the historical town site. Adjacent towards the campground and town site is definitely an OHV area, popular with some campers. Calico is extremely hot inside the summer could be frigid inside the winter. Spring and Fall are the very best seasons to visit.
