There is no need to pay the entrance to drive down to the shore front to view this rock as it can be seen from the highway unless you want to view it closer. Many rv parked here but there is nothing attractive here.

Maybe it is just the time of year but we found the beach almost blocked off by a wall of RVs parked almost down at the water's edge. Really not a worthwhile beach experience unless you are in one of those RV that grabbed a...More

Awesome! Great location for day swimming or staying overnight in RV. Easy access and looked like an oasis in the desert.

Crazy busy and crowded and loud 24/7 on Mem Day weekend, so if you like music blaring all night long and drunk people riding ATVs through your camp, you'll like Lone Rock. No guarantees that you can find a spot even on the... More

It can be busy in April but not as busy as June-August since the water hasn't warmed up enough to swim. To my recollections not too many waves unless the wind kicks up a lot--it's kind of like a bay there.
