Coon Hollow LTVA


When we went looking for Geodes we drove down Wiley Well Rd  past two LTVAs, (long term visitor areas).Wiley Well Road LTVA is nine miles from highway 10 and Coon Hollow is three miles farther. We were camped a mile past it, so one day we drove through it.

Coon Hollow LTVA is different from others we have seen, the cost is the same $180.00 for the season, or $40.00  for 14 days. There is a RV dump, garbage cans, pit toilets, water (though I heard it doesn’t taste too good) . The sites are a good  size with picnic tables and some had ramada over them.




Some people looked like they were  there for the season, there were about 30 sites in all, and there was a camp host.


We are still at Holtville BLM, but we are leaving in the morning, first we are going to El Centro, to go to Costco, then we are going back to Yuma (Ogilbe Rd) for a couple of days.We want to replace two plates that got broken on the way into this campground.We bought them at Frys so we are crossing our fingers that they will still have them.


We also had a drawer fall out and break, but Skip was able to fix it.


We are going to be heading up to Desert Center Wednesday or Thursday, probably for two or three days, after that  we are thinking of  the Sawtooth Mountains near Barstow.

Hard to believe we will be home in two or three weeks.



  1. I remember all the pretty purple flowers in the desert along the highway just north of Desert Center a little over a year ago. They seemed to be mostly on the west side of the road. A month from now we will be only weeks away from heading home as well. Kinda sad, & yet once the decision is made to head home, I just like to put the pedal to the metal, pull out all the stops, & get the heck home............

  2. The crew and I enjoyed Sawtooth Campground. Check the temps before you go. It might be quite cold yet.

  3. Good luck finding your plates, and safe travels.

  4. time sure flies when you are having fun!!!

  5. It is hard to think of going home and sad too. Glad the drawer was an easy fix. I guess you could always glue the plate. Good luck finding another.
