Roadrunner Campground is semi-primitive campground, similar to the other camping pads in the BLM-managed Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area on the popular sand dunes. Roadrunner Campground is large paved loop with stable ground for RVs and other vehicles to park on. Amenities are sparse at Roadrunner Campground, with the only ones being two sets of vault toilets. The Cahuilla Ranger Station is located just up Gecko Road near Highway 78, and camping supplies are available in nearby Glamis.
Off-roading is the primary activity for campers in Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area, but there are areas nearby for hiking as well, including a large area that is off limits to OHV vehicles. Roadrunner Campground is surrounded by hundreds of square miles for off-roading.
