“Beautiful small free camping ”

Reviewed May 06, 2019

Overall Rating

This was a fantastic, quick,1 night, passing by, stop. Right off the away but back just enough you didn’t hear highway noise. If you are pulling in late it can look a bit creepy but it’s not! Keep going down the road until you see the camp sign.

“Quiet Campground”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2019

Overall Rating

Came here on our way out of Joshua Tree, the campgrounds are flat & clean. If camping more than one night, the manager will come to ask for your name & people in your party. Epic sunsets and sunrises & there’s a Chevron gas station if you need a bathroom.

Perfect location for one night or several days. Talk with the manager of the campground about stays of more than one night.

We stayed here on our way to Sedona and on our way back. The sites are easily accesible and reasonably flat. Close to the highway but far enough for calm at night. Nice scenery

Paul the manager is very kind and friendly he introduced himself in the morning. He keeps this place very clean. This is a dry camp but there is a restaurant and gas station just down the dirt road.

This campground is free and clean. It has clearly marked campsites with fire pits. The sites are large enough to pull in or back in fairly easily for most rigs. We arrived in the dark and found the first sign easily. The second sign which is at the entrance of the campground is on the left just after the tanks. Convenient location fo... more

“Peaceful, clean site, awesome host! And it’s free!”

Reviewed May 18, 2018

Overall Rating

I just stayed here in a tent for two nights with a few kids. The site is conviniently located only 15 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park. There is a gas station right next to the site and they sell basically everything there (prices good be better, but..).

The host was friendly and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again!

We were very pleased with finding this location. So much history on this land. The spots were nice and level. Coyotes nightly right up to the tent and ate the dogs food. So watch your pets. The host was great. The cafe has AMAZING food and free wifi!!!
