We LOVED this campground. It is nestled between huge rocks which you can scramble upon and which also do a pretty good job of blocking the wind. The campsites are large and the surface is relatively soft - particularly for a desert environment. Most importantly, it is located smack dab in the middle of the park making it a great place from which to base your explorations and hikes. One warning - it gets very cold here in the winter. Take the forecast low from Twentynine Palms and subtract about 15 degrees. So dress warmly, bring some firewood, and get read to have one of most spectacular views of the night sky that you've ever seen.
