Located in Victorville, California, Mojave Narrows is known and loved by locals but is tucked away off the beaten path so you won’t just “happen by it”.
However, if you are looking for a place for RV camping, fishing, horseback riding, a great playground for the kids, or all of the above, the Mojave Narrows Regional Park is what you are looking for.

Mojave Narrows Fishing & Lakes:
There are two lakes within the Mojave Narrows Regional Park, Horseshoe and Pelican Lakes. Boats are not allowed on either lake, unless it is rented through them. Horseshoe Lake is the larger lake and is closest to the campground area. It is beautiful and has an island in the middle. The local wildlife loves the area.
There are plenty of campsites that back up right to the water which makes fishing from your spot a real joy and convenience. Pelican Lake is the smaller lake and is just a short walk from the campsites. There is a bridge at one end to allow you to cross easily to the far shoreline and pick your favorite fishing spot.
