The road in was good except for where it crossed washes it was pretty soft and Sandy. Four-wheel-drive recommended. We arrived to the sound of AR 15 fire, which then led to loud Toby Keith music. They were at least considerate enough to turn it down by the evening time. Once that group left, we had it to ourselves on a Monday and a Tuesday, and it was one of the best places we’ve ever stayed.

This is an awesome campground if you can live without hookups and don't mind the 8 mile drive down a dirt road to get here. That road is pretty well graded, but was still a bit prohibiting just because it's a little longer than we would have liked, and we are pulling a vintage trailer. There are 9 sites here on BLM land. Both tents and trailers/RVs are fine. The sites are great, each has a picnic table (some with shade covers), fire ring and grill. We were here for 4 nights and each night there were only 1-3 other sites taken (weekends, obviously more crowded), so it was very quiet. It really feels like you are out in the middle of nowhere. There is a little oasis of palm trees in the middle of the campground, and you are surrounded by beautiful desert mountains. Bring a blanket and lay on the ground for some stargazing on a dark night, it's incredible. It was already warm here in late January, so I would imagine Summer months are very hot. BLM does come around to make sure you have paid and will give you a ticket if not, so DO pay as soon as you get there. Clean pit toilets, and there is a water pump for potable water. No showers or hookups. We did have 3 bars on both Verizon and AT&T unboosted. Enough to work a full time job from, including video calls! We did attempt the drive from here into Joshua Tree, which took about an hour to get into the south entrance of the park. Not too bad, but the dirt long ish road made us not want to go back a second day. We did some hiking from the campground, where we got to check out a really cool abandoned miner's cabin and hike back to the gravesite of Gus Lederer, the once mayor of Corn Springs. It was a pretty cool hike, an easy 6ish miles roundtrip. Just walk out the back of the campground and turn right on the main/dirt road. We would definitely go back here again when we are in the mood for some seclusion.
