I wish we could have done even part of this hike, but the canyon bottom across which one has to drive to get to the canyon was flooded (early February) -- be aware that you may not be able to get through Mojave wash/river

The vast expanse of the campsite and the really generous camp space makes this our first local campground choice now! Love the canyon trail too... with breathtaking views of the beautiful hills flanking the canyon! Be sure u check the weather when considering your trek through the canyon. Stay away when rain! Can’t beat the reasonable fee of $6 per night. We’ll be a frequent guests of this place now!

Love it. Nothing to crazy. We live locally but we always find ourselves out there at least 6 times a year if its camping for the weekend or heading straight out from our place in newberry.

afton canyon is vast. it has many historical sites to look at. some of the canyons off to the side have trails that wind through the cracks become caves have ropes and latter's to get up then eventually put you on top of the canyon. there are petroglyphs if you know where to loom. there are dunes as well. there are also places where the tracks used to go through where there was minning.

I love this placed so much I got married at the campground! Hikes, off roading and rockhounding in one spot. We call it the Little Grand Canyon of The Mojave.

This is the place to go if you love the desert. The road goes alongside the railroad tracks. In the winter there's lots of water in the river(for the desert) so if you're walking its best to walk along the railroad tracks at the two river crossings, just make sure there's no train coming! There are tons of little canyons you can walk up and a few places where you can follow narrow gullies up to the top of the canyon walls and get amazing views. I spent an entire day exploring little nooks and crannies in the canyon walls. Can't wait to go back.

This is a great place being one the few areas of the mojave desert were the mojave river actually flows above ground, but more so in the winter. This is a fun place i recommend to those that love the desert and love exploring. -scott d
