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

We just went to Jumbo Rocks in December 2013. Jumbo Rocks has 124 sites, and is only $10 per night. The campground has its own amphitheater, a recycling station, baskets for used propane bottles, and wildlife proof trash bins scattered throughout. The nearest water is located in Twentynine Palms, where you can either fill up at the Visitors Center or... More

Had an awesome stay with a 30 ft. RV in the middle of Joshua Tree Natl Park. Mind you, the park's website says it will not have RVs there, but the ranger told us at the gate that we could - pleasant surprise! It is primitive, though, so no hookups, but it sure is worth it! Had a fire going... More

We went for the meteor showers in August.... camped at Jumbo Rocks, which is one of the larger campgrounds inside Joshua Tree. It's absolutely beautiful there. Hiking is fun, there's so many trails to follow and climbing the rocks is an adventure. The kids loved it. There are bathrooms, no showers, and we stayed in a tent this time. We... More
