“Nice campground with beautiful boulder formations. ”

Reviewed Apr 29, 2018

Overall Rating

Campground is nice and clean and very scenic. Check in is maybe 1.5 miles before campground and ranger was very helpful. We went in thinking we'd have no cell service but sure enough, we did have spotty Verizon. Either two bars or no service at any given time so don't rely on it. Our site, #49, was a spacious back-in for our 21' RV w... more

“Tight for RV’s but beautiful, scenic campground”

Reviewed Feb 21, 2018

One of only two campgrounds at Joshua Tree that accepts reservations, so book ahead as this Park is always hard to get a camping spot! The sites here are mostly pretty small, so check with the ranger or use google topos to check your space before reserving. (Also, try to get a site facing south in the winter for the sun, and behind the... more

“Beautiful, but not for those wanting peace”

Reviewed Oct 16, 2017

Overall Rating

I think I was just unlucky for my stay and was between a group of 4 college kids who were loud and a vacationing family with three kids who loved to communicate by yelling between themselves. But the camp setup was super easy and accomodating. Beautiful park, with the BLM land to the south being just as nice, I’ll stay there in future.

Joshua Tree National Park is amazing. Wasn't sure we were going to get her in but after some maneuvering we did it. We were suppose to stay three nights but had some issues with our solar panels. Most of the sites are pretty small. Glad we got our two nights in.

We loved our 2 nights at Indian Cove. The campground was quiet mid week. The sites are nicely spaced though not level. The site we stayed in actually slopes to the rear so if you're in a trailer or rv make sure you have what you need to be level. We loved being in the rocks and having close access to Twentynine Palms. Would definitely ... more

“Like visiting another planet. ”

Amazing Joshua Tree camping (one of two campgrounds that accepts reservations in the park), accessible without officially entering the park. Sites are a little tight, with only a few that can accommodate trailers/RV's 25 feet or more, but the ranger hooked us up with a spot that fit us just fine. There's no water, no dump station, and ... more

Great campground for dry camping. We had site 014 - which is a back in spot, and just big enough for our 22' camper. It is not level front to back so make sure you have enough leveling blocks and a low enough block for your tongue jack. Loved the large rock formation as a backdrop to our camping. Nice to sit around the campfire and w... more

“Stunning campground”

Reviewed May 02, 2016

I made a reservation in Indian Cove because it is one of two reservable campgrounds at Joshua Tree. The other campgrounds are all first come first serve, and coming from out-of-town I wanted to make sure I got a site at the park. It is on the north side of Joshua Tree National Park, so you have to drive about half an hour to actually e... more

“Beautiful, if expensive. ”

Reviewed Jan 04, 2016

You're paying for access, not amenities. The only reason I didn't give this place all 5 stars is because you pay $30 for a dry campsite with a hole-in-the-ground type bathroom. We stayed at Indian Cove over the New Year holiday, so it was probably more crowded than normal. However, despite being a full campground, I rarely heard anyone... more
