Every site there has its own unique layout. We went during summer when no one wanted to face the heat and shared the entire campground with about 6 other campers. The spot we got was massive and you could play on the rocks right behind your tent. Amazing spots in an amazing park. Seems hard to get a spot during... More

We got in at 9:00pm on a Thursday in April and were able to find a site and get the kids in bed by 9:45. What a wonder we woke up to in the morning! All that is magnificent about Joshua Tree awaits you when you wake up here! Strategically, it's a great place to be based out of, too.

Arrived Friday @ 11 and set up camp at site #92. I loved our site, our tents were hidden in between rocks and it's nice and spacious with LOTS of privacy. This campsite in particular had an awesome surrounding compared to the others around us. We had access to this "backyard" of our campsite that took you up and you... More

What an amazing place this is! What a treasure for those who live close by. We were fortunate to land 2 nites in Jumbo Rocks. This is such a scenic and fun place to camp. No shortage of rocks to climb, photograph or hike around. At sunset, go vertical and find your own boulder to view the evening sky! Had... More

We came there at Sunday morning at March 2014. Ranger at visitor center told us that all campgrounds are full, but since it was sunday, many people were leaving. It's just 10$ fee and many different places to stay, bigger and smaller. There are toilets, trash containers, fire pits, benches. Area is prety quite unless you have annoying neighbors. There...

Beautiful campground. But it is really popular, even on a weekday. We were really lucky to get in as we were in a 31ft rig, and you can't reserve. We just planned on ensuring that we arrived in the morning. The campsites are between the boulders so even when you go off to explore they are hardly visible and do... More

Jumbo rocks campground was amazing. Campsites are scattered between the piles of rock. It was scenic and a lot of fun. Skull rock trail passes through the campground. Lots of interesting formations and nature signposts as well! Highly recommended!

I read about jumbo rocks on trip advisor before we planned our trip but, had no idea it would be this fun of a campground. We arrived late Friday evening January 24th 2014 right before sunset to find only 13 campsites left out of 124. We set up camp at #92 right across from Skull Rock Trail Head. Our campsite... More

We stayed at this campground on the MLK Long Weekend (last weekend). It is one of the most amazing campgrounds we've ever seen. You literally camp amongst the huge boulders divided by pieces of the desert. The days were HOT but the nights were COLD so bring lots of clothing to accommodate these temperature variations. My only minor negative is... More

The main focal point at Joshua Tree National Park is the Hidden Valley area. To the west of the main road is a huge parking lot, as well as Hidden Valley, which is a naturally occurring circular enclosure made of a circular mountain of stone, with one naturally occurring entrance. Across the street from Hidden Valley is anothe parking lot,... More
