March 6th 2019. We had pulled in late around ten after a full days drive to Indian Cove campground which was gorgeous even in the dark only to find all sites marked reserved but many vacant. Since it was past hours couldn’t find a ranger anywhere so asked a person who informed us that everything was now done online. We could’ve taken ... more

“Unremarkable Yet Convenient Location”

Reviewed Apr 01, 2019

Overall Rating

We camped here for 3 nights while visiting Joshua Tree National Park. The camping area is essentially a gigantic open desert with room for everyone who needs a place to camp. It’s huge, so need to worry about finding a space. It’s dark at night though so arrive during the day if you really want to see your options for camping. This... more

“Arrive when it’s light out, it’d be easier to find a spot!”

Reviewed Mar 17, 2019

Overall Rating

Joshua Tree campgrounds were all full so we decided to go to JT North since it’s so close to the park. We followed the directions of others and entered using E Broadway St. The road was bumpy but we were fine in a Subaru Outback. It was late when we arrived so it took a minute to get our bearings and find a spot to set up the tent. It ... more

“Huge, close the Joshua Tree NP, and Free”

Reviewed Feb 17, 2019

Overall Rating

Overall a totally fine place. Have stayed Thurs - Sun night so far. Yes, lots of people on a weekend, but this place is absolutely huge, so no problem finding a spot. The roads are a bit rutted, so we wouldn't really think of traveling beyond the initial sections. I would say unless you have 4x4 or toys, probably not going to get too f... more

“Nice Spot - Don’t Come Here on a Weekend”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2019

Overall Rating

This is a nice easily accessible spot. As mentioned in another review, roads are paved until the BLM land if you take Broadway Street. No toilets, water, or trash but it’s fine if you come prepared. I didn’t see the poop other people mentioned; in fact is was very clean. If you’re tent camping, like we were, there is very little privac... more

“Excellent overflow option for Joshua Tree NP”

Reviewed Oct 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Came in October 2018, arrived mid-evening and couldn't find a walk-in spot. After visiting _every single campsite_ at Joshua Tree, we spotted a bulletin at one of the campsites that recommended Joshua Tree North as an overflow option. 30 minutes later we were rolling down a dusty dirt road in the dark that was heavily rutted in some... more

“Not busy on a Thursday, somewhat breezy, and some poop ”

Reviewed May 17, 2018

Overall Rating

I read all of the other reviews and I had some trepidation about staying at this site, since we were driving a 24’ RV. Yes, if you looked for it, you could find some poop and some tissue paper in bushes. If you weren’t looking for it, it wasn’t noticeable at all. I didn’t see any trash to speak of, whatsoever. I am sure that this i... more

Boondocking 4-door sedan w/ Tent set up. Pulled up earlier this week. Was originally me and someone else at the spot then more people came approaching the weekend. A solid spot in the desert. Bumpy road as usual, but if you drive slow it's not that bad. Really close to Joshua Tree town and National Park (like minutes away). Hot as hell... more
