What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
As the weather is finally cooling off, I felt it was a great time for us to get out to Death Valley and explore the area; as it has everything from old mines to hot springs to sprawling mountains.
This trip will be open to anyone, as the campsite will be relatively easy to get to and from; no special vehicle requirements. RVs & towed CAMPERs welcome!
This is dispersed camping/boondocking; no amenities provided (no toilets, tables, running water, electricity, or trash service). We are going to have to bring everything in, and set it all up, then pack everything out when we are done, including all trash.
Weather will be APPROX. 70/60s day & in the 40/50s night.
We will meet in MOJAVE at the MOBIL GAS STATION (15190 Sierra Highway, Mojave, CA 93501) at 10am. Then head out as a group at 10.30a. I will then lead the way to the campsite area, then once there we can set up our tents/living area and relax.
I plan on going out to explore the area, I want to check out a mine or two, and see what other cool things I can find. Anyone is welcome to join me, although for this part you will need a 4x4/AWD for this just to be safe on those roads/trails.
We will pack up/clean the campsite and head out whenever everyone is ready (you are welcome to leave earlier if needed).

$5 per person (not per RSVP)
It would be free, but since MeetUp charges ME a monthly service fee to be a host, I am just trying to break even; not make a profit off you like some of the other groups out there.
Death Valley Park has an ENTRANCE FEE of $30, per vehicle; this is paid at the gate.
