The countryside is desert with a smattering of Joshua Trees. We "dry camped" in the Black Rock Campgrounds. Lots of other there as well. Generators can be run during certain times. No potable water available so come well prepared. Very quiet, great sleep. We had full phone reception with T Mobile

This campground is easily accessible, clean, semi private, and has a handful of nice hikes to trek. Sitting at the "front" of J Tree, the town of Yucca is right down the road which is great if you need anything but also takes away from the camping experience as you can see the city lights at night. We did the... More

Exactly what we expected, simple campground with water and clean toilet. $20 per night The Rangers are extremely nice and helpful. Nice sunset view from the campground. We took great pictures of the starry night after dark. 11 minutes to Walmart, if we knew we could have bought tons of supplies locally. A bit cold at night for November camping... More

Beautiful views from this campground just outside Joshua tree national park. It was a quiet Monday night. The park ranger told us to pick any empty site. Nice facilities for a campground - flush toilet bathrooms and running water! Quiet - other campers are very respectful. While the campgrounds in the park have more dramatic settings the facilities made this... More

Nice quiet place to camp just outside of Joshua Tree National Park. There are some walks that you can do from here before heading into the park. For $15 there are clean toilets and a fire pit. The stars looked amazing.

Stayed for one night. Set up in time to watch the colours of sunset change the landscape- really beautiful. We stayed for one night before the Memorial Day weekend, so we noticed all the campsites were booked out from the Friday. There were not many people there the night we stayed. Decent size sites, fire ring & table & chairs.... More

We camped here thinking that this was a campground was inside the park. It is not you have to leave Joshua Tree National Park then drive through a neighborhood to get there. We got campsite 16. We arrived late into the park and as some people say they don't mark the campground very well so it was hard to find... More

Great spot for those just getting into camping. Yes, you can see the lights of Yucca Valley from your campsite, but if you're just starting out, that's great - it means you're not far from civilization if your entire dinner is canned....and you forgot the can opener. Rangers are very friendly, the toilets were very clean, running water available. All... More

We drove over from Vegas on our first leg of our road trip. It's not that far of a drive from Vegas we made it in and found our campsite and was even surprised to see my name written on the campsite I had reserved. There wasn't many people inside the park it was nice and quiet. Well worth it

This is a campground but you don't have to stay here to visit and enjoy the scenery and Joshua Trees (just respect the space and privacy of the campers). There's a dirt loop road through the campground, and a ranger station, restrooms and picnic area. It's not on the main park road - it's closer to Yucca Valley and "off... More
