Located in Legacy Park, this park contains a 24-hour interactive visitor kiosk. Designed and operated by the Board of Trade, the kiosk will provide around-the-clock visitor information to travelers. The unit, designed to withstand the harsh elements of Eastern Kern another is located up in Kernville. It works very simply, it is a touch pad screen and it offers all kinds of information for the whole county. Very helpful I think.

Just off of Hwy 14 and entrance to Mojave Air and Space Port. The park is located at Airport Blvd. and Sabovich St. at the entrance to the East Kern Airport District Administration Building and the Voyager Restaurant at the Mojave Airport/Spaceport.
I bet you didn't think a small town like this would have one, but they do and are proud of it! Although, Mojave doesn't appear to be much there is lots to see and do here and all around this community. So take some time and check out the web site.

Fondest memory: One morning I climbed up the hill next to our campsite at Mid Hills. I was expecting to see some nice nature views but was surprised to see the solar panel and microwave antenna. Technology is everywhere! I can't escape it!
Okay, this is a 'fond'memory because right after taking this photo, my truck got stuck in the soft shoulder to the right of the road.
I had my mountain bike with me so I was ready to ride for help when a 4X4 truck came along and pulled me out.
Sure is a nice view of the desert but don't know if it was worth getting stuck.
Favorite thing: In the Barstow area, in the eastern Mojave, there is a very particular place: Calico Ghost Town. It became a wild and wealthy mining town after a rich deposit of silver was found around 1881. In 1886, after more than $85 milion worth of silver, gold and other precious metals where harvested from the multicolor 'calico' hills, the price of silver fell and the town slipped into decline. Frank 'Borax' Smith helped revive Calico in 1889 when he started mining the ungamorous but profitable mineral borax, but that boom had gone bust by the dawn of the 20th century. Ah, remember that u have to pay a 6 dollars fee for the entrance.
