"Unremarkable Yet Convenient Location"

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... Read more

"Joshua Tree Basecamp"

The location of this campground, right by the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park is really convenient. You can see the highway from where you camp, but it’s not too loud to keep you up at night or anything. The camping area goes both east and... Read more

"Right in the Heart of Organ Pipe Cactus NM"

We stayed in a tent site for 2 nights and enjoyed how accessible the campsite was to Organ Pipe’s hikes, visitor center, and scenic drives. The campground has a trail loop surrounding it, a 1.2 mile loop in the surrounding hills, and a 1.3mi trail... Read more

"Close to Trails, Desert Museum, National Park"

We stayed in a tent site for $10/night. Check-in is done at the office, and they select a site for you. Our site fit our big gazebo tent and our xterra with plenty of wiggle room. We showed up right at checkout time (11am) to secure a spot, which... Read more

"Roadside spots near Saguaro NP East"

Finding a camping spot in March takes some luck. Lots of folks boondocking in the bigger spots so people squeeze into what’s left: small roadside spots with varying degrees of level ground. We found a small spot that fit our car and a couple of... Read more

"13 primitive sites near hiking"

There are 13 primitive sites on Proctor Rd. The last 2 sites are down a short, steep rd and best left to high clearance vehicles, but at the rest of the sites we saw a variety of rigs. Some sites are very small (tent sized) and others were big... Read more

"Very close to Patagonia, large campsite"

We camped at a site .9 miles north of the Arizona Trail. Very large site, large enough for a large camper, right on a creek. There was another site similar to ours just south, and lots of other campsites further up the road, though some are much... Read more

"You’ll be glad you stayed here!"

We reserved by phone, arrived after hours, and easily accessed via the after hours gate. We were assigned a nice site that appeared to have full hookups but we’re car camping. In January there was plenty of wood downed to build a fire. Bathrooms... Read more

"Noisy "

While it does give you a place to rest your head, it’s so noisy that it’s hard to sleep. The site is right next to a bridge which makes a lot of noise when cars pass by. We registered on the phone a couple of hours before arrival and were assigned... Read more

"Cheapest tent camping around "

Tent camping is in a big field near RVs and ball fields. They let you camp anywhere in the field so we picked a spot near a tree that had a picnic table next to it. Flush toilets and 2 showers per male/female bathroom. Scenery isn’t particularly... Read more
