“Not the best spot in the park”

Reviewed Jan 06, 2018

Overall Rating

White Tank is reminiscent of its well loved next door neighbor, Belle Campground, in that the sites are tucked into Joshua Tree's famous rock formations. The campground is small, best for tents, camper vans and truck campers. Anything bigger will have a hard time squeezing into a site and leveling.

The problem with White Tank is the trailhead. There's a small trail that leaves from the campground and climbs around on those famous rocks. The trail goes straight through the campground, which means people will be tromping through your campsite at all hours. It's noisy and busy. There's a lot of traffic from visitors trying to squeeze "one more car" into the limited parking. Some will give up and simply park in front of your site instead.

There are much better options in the park. White Tank is pretty, but too busy for my taste.

“Kinda cool, kinda not”

Reviewed Dec 20, 2016

Overall Rating

This is your typical NPS campground, with limited service. That's OK, it's not expensive ($15, 50% off with the geezer pass). It's clean, there are great views of rock formations, and many of the camp sites are tucked into rock formations. However, most of the sites on the east side of the campground back up to a short hiking trail. If you camp at one of these sites, you will have gapers walking thru your site all day. You will also have tourists park their car in front of your site, blocking you in..cause god help them if they have to walk an extra 100 yards before they hike!
It's an otherwise nice place.
Oh, there is also zero cell service, FYI.
