Beautiful spot, better to go into the backcountry

Squaw Flat is a great little campground that only gives you a tiny taste of the Needles District. If it's the farthest you can go I definitely recommend it, but if you can go into the heart of the Needles, I think you'll find that to be a more immersive, wild way to experience the desert.
