Located in the lower Colorado Desert in eastern Riverside County, Wiley's Well campground is located adjacent to a desert riparian wash populated by palo verde, smoke tree, mesquite and ironwood trees.
There is easy 4-wheel drive access to nearby rock-hounding sites: Hauser Geode Beds and Opal Hill Fire Agate Mine. The historic Bradshaw Trail National Scenic Byway provides access to numerous trails, gem and mineral collection sites, and an historic stage route/mining area. Long term permits cost $180 or a short visit permit for $40.
Take I-10 (eastbound if you are traveling?from Palm Springs; westbound if you are traveling from Blythe) to the Wiley?s Well Road (Exit 222) and head south for 3 miles.? The paved road ends here and turns right to provide access to two state prisons, Chuckwalla Valley and Ironwood; however, visitors to the LTVA need to continue south on Wiley?s Well Road, which is the graded dirt road?to the left. Take the graded road 6 miles south to the Wiley's Well camp site, or travel an additional 3 miles south to the Coon Hollow camp site.
