When we visited in early February they were in the process of changing their reservation system from walk-in only to reservation only (only between February and May) so when we arrived it was walk-in and we picked site 117 but when we went to book it for the 5 nights we wanted to stay it was already booked and we ended up having to mov... more

“Breathtaking Sunrise”

Reviewed Feb 01, 2018

Overall Rating

Great road to drive around the National Park. Campsites in Joshua Tree fill up quickly.
Jumbo Rocks was a fantastic place to park the RV, some sites are level and some sites are on a slight angle.
We have never seen such a beautiful sunrise in our entire camping trip.

“Amazing trip!”

Reviewed Jan 28, 2018

We pulled into the park around 11:00 am on a Friday morning to find all campgrounds full with the exception of Jumbo Rocks (which only had 25 sites remaining the hour before we got there). We drove through the campground and found site #80 open. The site was perfect for our 16 foot Airstream Basecamp and truck with plenty of room. The ... more

“My second-favorite Joshua Tree experience”

Reviewed May 18, 2017

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

“Heart of the park”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2017

Overall Rating

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
