There are many perks to camping in the middle of nowhere. With no light pollution, the location is prime for star-gazing. It allows you to get away from work, particularly when cell phone reception is so spotty that you can't even use it at your campsite. If this sounds like your idea of paradise, make sure you schedule a trip to Reyes Creek Campground. Reyes Creek is located in Maricopa, California, and charges just $20 per night for camping. Most of the campsites can be reserved online, but a few are on a first-come-first-served basis, so don't give up hope if you live nearby.
If you're planning to camp in an RV, make sure it's a small one. Most of the campsites are small, so tent camping is the more ideal option. Camping with friends? If you have more than one car, there's a $10 fee per extra car.
As you might have guessed, Reyes Creek Campground is best for primitive camping. No electricity is available for hookup. There are no showers located at the campground. Fresh water isn't available, either. Make sure you bring plenty along from home, especially if you're bringing along your canine companion. You should absolutely be prepared to self-sustain for the duration of your outing.
Some pupular activities while camping at Reyes Creek include fishing, swimming, and bird watching. A few trailheads are also accessible from the campground. If you're looking to fit in some exercise while camping, you're in luck!
If your pup is on a leash, they're welcome to join you at Reyes Creek! You'll want to remember to clean up after them, which means you're going to want to bring along some baggies for quick and easy clean-up.
Primitive camping isn't for everyone, but if you and Fifi enjoy getting away from it all -- even if just for a while -- Reyes Creek Campground is the perfect spot to call your temporary home!
