I spent a week there last month and it wasn't long enough for me. I will do the max they allow the next time I am in OPCNM. But I wish they had electricity there. And no quiet hours. I have to use my RV Generator to charge my electric motorcycle that I always take with me to explore all the unpaved roads in OPCNM. That combined with quiet hours sometimes makes it a hassle to charge up the bike.Dreamsend said:Thanks. My ETA is now Friday also. Decided to do one day here in the organ pipe cacti.

It's concrete on the bottom only. Even the old small boarder fence (now being replaced with the wall) has a heavy metal horizontal bar , see photo below. That is so nobody can drive a vehicle through it.Dreamsend said:Hi Don - I also have a love affair with OPCNM. I've been here 3 days actually, (post should have read "one MORE day") and spent 5 days here last year. Just the best place. The quiet hours can be problematic I guess, but I haven't had any hassles yet. Had to run gen lots more this year as it's been mostly cloudy all three days.
Some camping acquaintances parked next to me said you can see the wall from the Desert View Trail also. It's slotted concrete right? I think I'm kinda impressed with the way it lets the landscape on the other side show through. Maybe it's just your pic, but it's not as unattractive as I imagined.
Thank you for the info on the restaurant. Yeh, no convenient places to grab a bite, but I planned for that too. Headed out for a little walk now. I'm looking for Crested Saguaros!
Linda - who kinda hijacked the thread
