Great overnight pit stop

The site is perfect for a quick night's rest and very close to Joshua Tree National Park. It's very easy to find and although the path that leads Angela's home is sandy, it was no issue for our AWD vehicle. We did not back into the parking spot as it wasn't flat enough for the rooftop tent, but we did right in front and it was fine.
Angela is very sweet and baked us delicious banana muffins overnight.

This little piece of heaven was so peaceful we booked 5 more nights! There is a lot to do around the area and the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park is very close by! Angela is an absolute sweetheart and gifted us with fresh banana muffins and hard-boiled eggs the first morning! She is very knowledgeable about the area and provided us with great info! Although there is no shower on site yet there is a great shop called Coyote Corner that has 5$ showers for campers! I would recommend the shabby shanty for anyone who wants to enjoy the natural beauty of this area and is also cool with simple amenities! You won't be disappointed

Out in the desert. Exactly what we wanted. 4-wheel drive is recommended for getting off the edge of the road, but there is room to pull in for RVs. Dramatic views and nice owners who are very accommodating.
