Welcome to the high desert! If you’re living out of your van then you’re probably a climber (like myself) or living your best life without limits! You probably just need a safe place to park for the night but having a few amenities wouldn't hurt ;)  *****This listing DOES NOT accommodate tents!***** If you need a tent Campsite please book under our other listing "Jackrabbit Camper Ranch" Thanks! There is space for 3 vans (maybe more if you are in the same party) water available but no hookups & no generators! Porta-potty, communal fire pit, access to an outdoor shower(with hot water, towels, shampoo & soaps) and stargazing/yoga platform! Van sites do not include picnic tables or personal fire pits!  Jackrabbit Ranch is just far enough away from town to enjoy quiet and dark skies but just 15mins to downtown Joshua Tree and only 8miles from Indian Cove. We are also right in-between both the west and north park entrances. The north entrance is less crowded in high season so no lines at the gate:) Watch the sun set behind the San Gorgonio mountains and sleep under the stars! I will be available should you need me but will respect your privacy.

Amy was a fantastic host. She was kind, welcoming, a blast to have around, and I will certainly be returning. I highly recommend this site to any type of camper: novice to over-lander lifestylers.

Jackrabbit ranch was amazing. Amy the host went above and beyond to welcome us and make sure we had everything we needed. With panoramic views of the landscape sunsets and sunrises are epic. I would definitely stay again.

Amy’s little camping zone was perfect after a day of driving. She is very welcoming and friendly and her place was super cute. Great place to stop before heading into j tree.
