Plan on not sleeping at this popular campground. I'd prefer to stay up all night and watch the stars than have rude, noisy neighbors force you out of your tent. When the ranger is away, sometimes chaos will play. On our weekend there were at least three rowdy groups keeping campers up all night. But with great luck you'll not... More

Pitch your tent late afternoon, take a hike, make dinner and then put a blanket on a rock to watch the stars. You won't be disapointed. We certainly weren't. But don't forget to bring water and plenty of sunscreen. And say hi to the chipmunks that roam the rocks in morning.

I've been to Joshua Tree a few times and it's great. There are only a few weeks during the Fall and Spring that I like to go due to the extreme temperatures but other than that, it's a great place to camp. Hiking around and watching the rock climbers is my usual day's adventure. Very laid back and it's easy... More

Great campground with plenty of spaces and privacy given the close proximity. Fire rings and BBQ grill grates at each spot. Very well kept toilet (holes) nearby stocked with plenty of TP, which is appreciated! Thank you NPS for that convenience. The terrain is awesome. You can leave camp and wander around on any of the rocks. This campground is... More

This place is WOW. I can only recommend anyone to take a couple of days off and stay at this campsite. The nature is amazing. You have grill & fire places. And vale for money with 15$ per night is just unbeatable.

We had a fabulous stay in Jumbo Rocks. Our kids range from 2 to 12 and they absolutely loved climbing and playing right around the campground. Bring gloves for everyone and you will enjoy the adventure even more!

Been here half a dozen times; never gets old. Get here early to secure a weekend spot in the spring. Every site is unique. Walking around looking at all the sites is half the fun. Walking around the perimeter of the campground, scaling the house-size boulders, and trying to shimmy through mini canyons is the best way to spend your... More

Very popular, fills up fast so arrive early to get choice spots. No hookups or cell service, just national park wild. Also no water or dump, must drive to one of the other campgrounds in the park. This is the biggest and noisiest campground right in the big rocks, but lots of hiking and viewing areas close by. Beautiful park... More

During our recent visit to Joshua Tree National Park, we visited the Jumbo Rocks Campground area for 2-3 hours. Though we did not camp in this area, we had a wonderful time - with family fun hikes across the diverse landscape. We were also lucky to find a parking spot at the entrance and then we walked through the area.... More
