Trail Information


Voyager Rock Campground, also known as Courtwright Campground is a great place to escape when looking for the ultimate camping destination. With plenty of dispersed camping and an improved campground, there is no doubt why many people seek out this trail for a weekend to relax on. Along the route, you will have some of the best views in Southern California including towering granite mountains, lush forest, and expansive lakes. Outside the camping, this is also the gateway to one of the hardest trails in America, The Dusy-Ershim. If you plan on visiting the Voyager Rock area, please be prepared for lots of hiking, off-roading, fishing, and memories.

Made it with my then stock Jeep JK. Just camped for a couple nights at the campground there didn’t go up chicken rock. Nice campground pretty much right on the lake so bring your fishing poles to enjoy the nice sunrise and sunsets. Trail was rutted in a few spots but nothing too bad. Scraped once on the way in but nothing too bad. Giving 5 stars because it’s one of my favorite places to camp and the trail was fairly mild and quite fun actually. Mid week seems to be the best time to go because there’s less people if you are planning to camp for a couple nights

We did this trail in a Jeep Commander with a brand new 2” lift. It was great fun. Trail was clean of tree falls and other unexpected obstacles. Parts of the trail were pretty rough for our rig, but we made it without any vehicle damage. We’re happy with our lift. I am happy to announce that two pit toilets have been added to Voyager Campground. Bring your own toilet paper, of course, in case the provided rolls are gone. There are no garbage cans. Plan to pack it in, pack it out.
