“My second-favorite Joshua Tree experience”

Reviewed May 18, 2017

Overall Rating

I arrived on a Thursday in early May, and was surprised when I entered the park at Twentynine Palms the ranger at the entry station said that Belle and Jumbo Rocks both had sites available. I though for sure I'd have to boondock at the BLM land at the south entrance and try again early the next morning. I first headed to Belle, my f... more

Jumbo Rocks is awesome but no hook-ups or running water or wifi or cell coverage; dogs are allowed. Enjoy your time off the grid! We have a 26' airstream with a Tundra and found a pull-through spot with no reservations during high season. Remember to look at the little yellow tags if you don't see any sign of campers at a particular... more

“Great spot”

Reviewed Apr 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Arrived Monday after Easter and the ranger said first time in two months there was space! We arrived before noon and we were not the last spot to be had, but close to it for our size (we are well over the recommended 30' combined length). Definitely a great spot in a magical place,...but a little tight to be driving around looking for ... more

We stayed here in February. We came into the park initially on a Saturday and Jumbo Rocks was full so we headed down to the south end of the park to Cottonwood Campground for a couple of nights. We came back to Jumbo Rocks on Monday morning and there were several spots available. So if you can avoid coming in on the weekend you'll hav... more

Easy access for RVs in this popular campground. Very busy on weekends with campers coming in from LA and surrounding areas, and it's next to the popular drive-by Skull Rock feature. We scoped it out on a Friday without the trailer, and came in on a Tuesday when it was much mellower and easy to snag a spot. You can loop together a g... more

“You're Right in the Middle of Joshua Tree...”

And being right in the middle of Joshua Tree is about the only great thing about this campground. It's gorgeous. The rocks are everywhere. The sunset is incredible. So is the sunrise. But as a campground...one night was enough for me. The campsites are jammed in together, with your neighbors right on top of you. Our 16 foot camperva... more

Stayed here about 5 yrs ago, what a magical place and on my list of places to return to. Don't recall the nightly cost, but not expensive. No hooks up etc, strictly boondocking from what I recall.

I would say this is the best site in the campground! Our truck and camper fit perfectly into the pull off and behind us on 3 sides were hillsides. So we had a very private and quiet spot. However, we were there on a busy holiday weekend and there was a continual parade of cars driving through the campground. It was quite relentless... more

This is the campground everyone comes to when the other smaller ones are filled up (like us). There aren't very many big rig spots, our size rig (27') was one of the biggest and a few of the loops are a bit tight to drive through. The sites can be right next to each other or separated by giant boulders. If you need multiple sites you c... more

On a February mid-week day, the campground looked quite full. Only after driving around did we realize most yellow tags were outdated! So make sure to check the dates if you think a site you like is taken. There is A LOT of variety in the spots. The ones with large, flat parking spots seem to fill up fast with RVs and trailers. We did ... more

This was a camping trip for us, so we were in a tent not the RV. We went on a Thursday afternoon and had a few choices of spots. It's first come, first served, so you have to drive around looking for spots. We noticed at least one tag left on a post that was old. So, if you see a tagged spot with nothing in it, I would double check the... more

This is a first-come first-served campground so you might need to drive through it a few times to find a spot that works for you and is available. For our size of trailer the only sites that worked were "parallel park" style along the main road through the campground. Obviously this cut down on our privacy out one side of the trailer. ... more
