“Nice and Scenic, but VERY Busy”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2017

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

“This is the Joshua Tree you imagined it would be”

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

“Nothing but Peace”

Reviewed Mar 17, 2016

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

Its everything you'd want from Joshua Tree. Big rocks, Joshua Trees, Yuccas... We really loved this beautiful, peaceful spot! Out of many campgrounds this is one of our top 5. Its a small campground so get there really early and don't even think about coming on a Saturday unless you're feeling really lucky. There is no water in the... more

Note it is $20 to get into Joshua Tree, that permit is valid for 7 days. Posted at the campground was a sign and envelopes $14 per night. Rules were basic, except running your generator there are specific 2 hour blocks three times a day that they can be run. We found a pretty level pull through site plenty big enough for our Airst... more

We were boondocking at Joshua North prior to the Thanksgiving holiday and drove in the park to check it out and review some of the camping opportunities...we had never been to Joshua. Boy, what a zoo. We do not recommend the park during the Thanksgiving holiday. Wall to wall people and than some. But Joshua is just beautiful and so coo... more
