NEEDS UPDATE Afton Canyon is one of the hidden gems for spring and fall camping in the Mojave desert. The campground is a first-come, first-service basis and costs $6 a night. There is also a 14-day stay limit. Each site is equipped with a shade structure, parking area, table, fire pit, and grill. Vault toilets are centrally located. Campfire permits are required and may be restricted in fire season (typically May-October). Campfire permits can be obtained online.
