JOSHUA TREE CAMPING

Joshua Tree National Park is like no other place on earth, with its signature Joshua trees, giant boulders, and surrounding mountains that create an almost surreal landscape and make you feel like you have entered another world. Camping here is nothing less than spectacular, with scenic campgrounds spread around massive rock formations and sites just perfect for pitching a tent or setting up an RV.

JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK CAMPGROUNDS

 

Know that Hidden Valley, Ryan, Jumbo Rocks, White Tank and Bell campgrounds are 1st come 1st served and fill up quickly on the week ends and during peak season dates….Hidden Valley, Ryan, and Bell are our personal favorites….Remember there are no services or running water in the park, so come prepared!Hidden Valley and Ryan are primarily climber campgrounds. If all sites are full bring fire wood and beer, offer to share and pay fees…Most climbers are pretty cool!

UNDEVELOPED BLM LAND

Coyote Lake bed and Copper mountain.

“This land is your land, this land is my land, from California to the New York islands”…..Your public lands, 21 day camping limit…Land of freedom, dirt bikes and guns, not to say these are bad thing, just know what you are getting into…No services. We recommend camping on the east side of the lake bed…Drive north off of HWY 62 on Sunburst rd. Once the houses peter out on your right (east), start looking to head in and make your self at home. We do not recommend leaving a campsite up here while you are in the Park or elsewhere.

Joshua Tree Bom

Cheryl and Jimbo propose a creative solution to the campsite shortage in JTNP, why not camp on their property rather than cross your fingers for a site in the park? They offer two mini-cabin type shelters for you to camp in, as well as plenty of space to pitch a tent for more of the classical camping experience.

-Porte Cochere: $60 a night, Campfires allowed, pets allowed, potable water on site.

-The Desert Pensione: $75 a night, Campfires, pets, potable water (check check check!)
