Stayed a Jumbo Rocks with family, 11 and 9 year olds. The kids loved climbing on the rocks and sitting around the fire in the evening. The only down side are people who visit and leave trash at the park. Not sure what inspires people to bring their dog camping and leave poop at the camp site for others to... More

Awesome terrain to camp at. But check weather before going. It was cold but windy. So had to sleep in car because of gust of winds. Camping here in warm weather will be awesome. Will return for sure. Its near Skull Rock and many other trails.

The campground is not patrolled by the NPS at night so if you have loud neighbors you are basically left with two options. Confrontation or stay awake until they pass out. We had one great night and two terrible ones. I mentioned it to the Rangers and they didn't seem to care.

6 first time campers. I am glad we stayed here in Jumbo Rocks compared to Hidden Valley and Black Rock. I wanted to stay at Black Rock because they had showers but that camp site is just so far away from the interior of the park. And only stay at Hidden Valley if you are a professional climber. Do them... More

Free park entrance courtesy of Subaru Anerica on September 27th made for an awesome trip. We stayed overnight at the Jumbo Rocks campground and checked out as much as we could. The best part was the bouldering for me & the stargazing at night was incredible. Really quiet and plenty of sites. Great park and campsite

There's nothing quite like climbing up one of the huge boulders and seeing the sunset over the horizon and the milky way take over the sky above. The campground was nicely spaced out. But I wish other campers could be more quiet.

I came to Jumbo Rocks over labor day weekend and let's just say the night was filled with magic to say the least. While we came on a busier weekend, we were able to find a camping spot (#92) completely secluded from everyone around us. There was room for our huge tent that fits 10 people, and we made two...

One of the campground in the Joshua Tree NP. No reservations accepted at this site but we had no problem finding a nice spot in the middle of August. Temperatures were not as high as we feared, also thanks to the shadow provided by the massive rocks that form this campground. They also provide some privacy and give you the... More

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.
