We found a great campsite in Water Canyon BLM. The campsites are scattered along the road & creek. We took the first site. Looking up the canyon, only one other RV is insight.

Local Flavor – Area Businesses We Enjoyed & Recommend
Toasted Tavern With a name like that, we just had to try it. Varied food menu, along with a few veggie options. Generous servings and friendly service. Only a couple of microbrews, but they are served in 24 oz mugs.
Khoury's Excellent selection & quality of fresh produce. Nice to find when you're on the road.
