Drove a little further this day to stay at Barstow. Left TN and headed up the coast through CA, OR and WA. This park is very easy to access from I-40. Civilian gate guard was very cordial. Called earlier in the day and was told there were 3 spots left and should be available. All the pads are concrete and look relatively new. In fact, there are 11 or 12 new sites that are not yet complete. Site had 30/50 amp service, water, and sewer. Commissary within eye sight; small but well stocked. PX was so so. Did not explore the town of Barstow. In short, this is a great place to pull off for the night. I would have considered staying a second night, but ready to head north. Rate I paid was $23.00. I thought it was interesting that this park had not been rated since Nov 2010.
