We arrived around sunset-and found that everything was full at Belle and Jumbo Rock (that could accommodate our 35ft Airstream. We ended up camping our first night in the BLM south of the National Park. We got to Belle early the next day to make sure we got a spot. Site 4 was amazing! We could tuck our trailer way back in the rocks, ... more

“Quiet and peaceful national park camping”

Reviewed Jan 17, 2018

Overall Rating

We somehow manage to always arrive at first-come-first-serve national park campgrounds on a long weekend, realize this scheduling error the day prior, then get worried about finding a campsite. Arriving at Belle 1PM on a Thursday before the MLK long weekend we managed to snag the last spot long enough to accommodate our 28' Airstream. ... more

“Beautiful Seclusion in Joshua Tree”

Reviewed Jan 06, 2018

Overall Rating

Belle is a tiny campground with sites best suited for tents, camper vans and truck campers. Bigger rigs may be able to squeeze into a site or two, but options are limited. Site 5 is the creme de la creme. It's tucked into a rock formation such that when you're camped you can neither see nor hear your neighbors. What a luxury! Traffi... more

We stayed at Belle on our 2nd night in JT. It was quite cold and a bit of a breeze blowing through as this campground is not as sheltered as Hidden valley or Ryan that we visited. Beautiful sunset though. Would stay again but did prefer Ryan

“Beautiful spot in JT”

Reviewed Dec 01, 2017

Overall Rating

Joshua Tree is one of our favorite places in California so we may be a bit bais but Belle is a perfect little campground. Sites 2 and 3 don't have much privacy but are very easy back ins for trailers 25' +. No cell service, no water, pit toilets, perfect landscape and beautiful sunsets is what you can expect. Enjoy!

We stayed two nights in JTNP and enjoyed every minute of it. The rangers originally suggested we find a spot at Jumbo Rocks CG, but we found Belle to quieter, easier to navigate, and better for parking our 38' motorhome and toad. Parking among the rocks was wonderful. We met other campers who were very nice and we enjoyed hearing owls ... more

I spent one night in Joshua Tree National Park at Belle Campground. I chose this location because, well...there weren't many sites available on the day I arrived. The sites are first come, first served. I recommend arriving earlier in the day in order to reserve a campsite that works for you (RV, tent). The location for my tent wa... more

I stayed here in mid April 2016, just now getting around to a review. I arrived around 7 am on a Thursday, and the campground was full. I pulled over and just made some coffee and walked the pup and enjoyed the solitude for awhile, keeping an eye out for signs of anyone departing. I was rewarded within a half hour, as a couple in si... more

“Beautiful and convenient”

Reviewed Mar 30, 2016

Overall Rating

Of all the campgrounds in Joshua Tree National Park, the Belle Campground offers the best experience. The setting is classic Joshua Tree, with large granite boulders and the namesake tree surrounding the campsites. Compared to other Joshua Tree campgrounds, it is small (less than 20 campsites), secluded and quiet. Its central location ... more

This was our first visit to Joshua Tree, so we had our heart set on staying in the middle of the park. We were nervous as all those campgrounds are first come, first served, but we arrived around 10 am on Sunday and lucked out. We had to wait a few hours for someone to leave at noon, but we were happy to wait to secure our spot. Sit... more
