CG Site Map

There are a total of 42  sites with no hookups scattered among the wonderful boulders, most of which are large pull-throughs. See Campground Overview for basic info. Click images for larger sizes.

The greatest thing about the no hookup sites here is how up close and personal you can get to the rock formations. I think rocks make the best neighbors!

City of Rocks - site 5

This is toward the front of the campground, with RV in Site #5.

City of Rocks Site 7 - balanced rockAround the bend, I had to laugh at Site #7, when I thought I hope that balanced rock stayed balanced!

City of Rocks Site 9 - reserveableSite #9 is the only site in the main section of the no-hookups that is reserveable online.  It is a massive pull-through and across from the electric/water sites.  This site is also shown with the 5th wheel in it at the top of this page.

City of Rocks Site 10Even though Site #10 is the next in line, there is an extra large amount of space between these sites, along with large boulder groups between them.  It is one of the most popular sites, but it also has one of the petroglyphs in the back of it, so campers are encouraged to be respectful of occupants.

City of Rocks Site 14

Site #14 is also popular due to being so isolated with no sites at all close to it. A pull-through, but it doesn’t have a very deep parking area off the road and I also think it would be pretty hard for a larger RV to level here.

Pegasus North Campground:

City of Rocks Pegasus North entry

Most of the sites in the Pegasus North loop are reserveable (15, 16, 17, 18 and 19).

City of Rocks Pegasus North site 16For those who really want to get away from it all, Site #16 is a great location, near the hiking trail, and the most requested in this section, so if you really want it, best to try to reserve in advance.

City of Rocks Sites 24-25Rounding the corner to the west side of the main loop, this shows Site #25 and the magnificent desert and remote mountain views on the other side of the rocks.

City of Rocks Site 28 pullthrough

Site #28 is a nice pull-through with those beautiful expansive views to the side. It is also nearby the vault toilet and water faucet.

City of Rocks - backside overviewA little further down the road, looking down on Site 32, which is near the Native American Grinding Stones:

ative American Grinding StonesWhen Gabriel (Park Manager) was showing me around, he said they thought the Native Americans choose this spot because they could look far out and see if anyone was approaching.  Great views, huh?

Transparency/Disclaimer: As stated openly on the Home page, I do barter whenever possible for review space on my website. It’s one of the ways that help support my travel habit and keeps this site free to readers. But I always make it clear that my reviews are my honest opinion, can never be bought at any price and if I wasn’t satisfied, I would also state that (just like I do Pros and Cons on every campground I review, whether it’s bartered or not).

    Your reviews are always so informative and interesting. Keep up the great work and thank you.

    • I live for comments like yours! 🙂 It’s encouraging to hear that all the time I take to research and share this info is appreciated and helpful. When I first started fulltiming 16 years ago, there wasn’t nearly the information out there like there is now. As a solo woman, I wanted to know more details than you can usually find on the official websites, so I started compiling my own. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the thank you!

      • Angelack

        Your site is one of the first ones I found and bookmarked when I started researching fulltiming. I’m 52 and will be hitting the road in the next few months. Your journeys and thoughts keep me excited to get started. If Malia can do it, so can I!!!

        • Girl, you just made my day – hell, my month! Once I made my own “crazy” dream come true, I was determined to try to inspire other women to follow their own, no matter what it was. And my coverage of state parks is part of that – once I discovered how much natural beauty is around us in state and national parks, I knew that’s what I started traveling for – not staying in sterile, cramped KOA type campgrounds. You go, girl, I am behind you all the way and you be sure to share your travel tales with me once you take off, too!

          • Angelack

            Will do. I’ll be staying mostly in the west except when I head to Iowa to visit family. Maybe we’ll cross paths sometime.

          • That would be great!
