Discovery Point Pics

Post by vwhijumper » Mon Aug 21, 2006 12:55 pm

Our group is looking into possibly staying at the Discovery Point Campground next year. However none of us have actually been to the campground.

I was wondering if there are any prefered spots? We have several long rigs so we need room. Any pics would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

M1 - M6 next to the store are the big rig pull throughs. Plenty long but hey are kind of pie shaped so your bunched up at the front and wide open at the rear. We stayed in M3. Check my webshots, page down for some pics of space 31-32 which we stayed at the year before.

Good people run Discovery Point. Great place if you like camping in cramped quarters. Plus it has sand access but it takes a few minutes to get to the sand and the road to the sand whooped out. We stayed there in June and I vowed to be on the sand the next time. Again, good place if you are OK with cramped quarters, and great people running the place. Just wasn't for us. We are spoiled by dry camping on the sand.

We stayed here a couple of years ago [4 1/2]...

Full hooks are [imho] a must for a over 3 day stay.

I mean, you can do without, but why? Better find a good reason.

DP is a 5 minute short drive to sand.

The distance from Wash 4 to the store at Glamis if you had to stay on the whooped out portion of the "Wash Road". I consider this no big deal.

The dunes south from DP are very fun.

On your first ride, skip the trees/lakes and beach. Dune to the far south closure, then dune back, and take in all the dunes. The Oblique Dunes were very fun to dune up... then down at full throttle!

We'll be staying for at least a week so full hookups are a must. How does the cramped camping compare to the Desert Oasis in Idaho?

It is more like the Sand Hills at SA....

It didn't seem that cramped when we were there, but it was an 'off' week....

I should qualify that and say that it was sold out the week we were there so it made it quite cramped. It still worked well, but we are spoiled by sand camping. Minimal rules and quiet times and such.

Definetly not as cramped as Desert Oasis but no cement pads.
