“Extremely tight spaces”

Reviewed Feb 18, 2019

Overall Rating

Prior to pulling into JTNP we camped outside at the BLM south area and I should have stayed put. Sites here are extremely tight including the one way lane throughout the campground loops. Sites are NOT level. Several water spigots non operational. Some sites are right off the side of the road. And if you have rigs with slide outs-gosh ... more

We didn’t see the allure of this park. We are in a 41 ft DP Mh site reserved said it was over 50 ft long, NOT TRUE, yes we fit but barely. So unlevel it was terrible & we carry blocks of wood to help us level there is no way on earth to get that spot level. The spots are so close together. This was not our cup of tea. We only spent one... more

“Great location inside the park.”

Reviewed Oct 06, 2018

Overall Rating

This is in the south end of Joshua Tree National Park. This is only 1 of 2 campgrounds inside the park that has water. There is also a dump station. The water spigots are located throughout the campground but we filled up at the dump station. There are 2 loops, the motorhome sites are perimeter parallel road sites. Our driver side s... more

Most recent stay 4-28-16 [I’m late on writing my review] ~ We camp in a "Tear Drop” style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and this National Park Campground is w/o the amenities of other private or some state campgrounds ~ BUT they do have a water fill / dump station on site an... more

“Pretty and quiet”

Reviewed Feb 17, 2017

Overall Rating

This is the only option for camping in the southern part of the park. We came in on a Sat. (dumb move) and all the other campgrounds were full. When we made it down to Cottonwood Campground we were pleasantly surprised to find it only about two thirds full and so we had plenty of sites to chose from. Cottonwood doesn't get the same amo... more
