Off the grid camping on tent platforms or ground space, with solar showers, some drinking water (bring your own) a water tower for washing up, and great cellular data service, Perfect for festival season and just a couple miles away from festival venues. Tent or van camping in a groovy, relaxing, off-the-grid rural mountain desert retreat! Parking for 1 vehicle per camp area, and plenty of parking outside the fence for additional vehicles. Great for solo, couples, family and group camping. Drive 2 miles down a well-maintained dirt road, unlock the double gates, drive in to unload, and to chillax under the most beautiful view of the stars in Joshua Tree, at the base of Copper Mountain. 5 acres of beauty and privacy, at elevation 2800+ which gives you a wonderful panoramic view of the lights of the city at night. Great hiking to a firepit at the top of the mountain, mountain climbing, see the cave, or sit by your campfire after a busy day. Tent Platform 3 is 12ft x 12ft - comfortable wood planks, with a wood fence attached to hang a rug on to offer a windbreak. Parking is in font of your tent platform - for one car. Park additional vehicles outside the fence. All tent platforms are inside a fenced area. Community area includes a shade area with seating and extra chairs and table, community picnic table, a cafe table and chairs, access to the water tower (NOT potable), some drinking water, a community BBQ grill, your own firepit, a porta potty, composting toilet and outdoor solar showers. Be sure to bring your own water, cooler, lighting and firewood, or you can buy wood from my neighbor Scott. Joshua Tree Lae, RV and Campground is just 2 miles away, and Joshua Tree main street is 8 miles away, where you will find food and drink at Joshua Tree Saloon, breakfast at Country Kitchen or Natural Sisters Cafe, Crossroads Cafe or pizza at Pie for the People; grocery stores and Walmart, Marshall's, Petco and Home Depot, yoga studio and coffee shop. There's a corner general store store less than 2 miles away (Yucca Mesa at Aberdeen) and Landers Brew Pub and Pioneertown are about 10 miles away. Honor the mountains and the desert by hauling out your trash, and  honor the neighbors by keeping quiet at night, after 10pm. Joshua Tree National Park is about 6 miles away and offers climbing tours, horseback riding, rock climbing, hiking trails along Ryan Mountain, Split Rock, Trashcan Rock.  Things to do in the area: visit the Wall Street Mill, Johnny Lang Grave, Fortynine Palms Oasis, Skull Rock, Keys Ranch, or see a concert at Landers Brewery Pub, Joshua Tree Saloon, Pappy & Harriets in Pioneertown. Take a scenic drive to Barker Dam, Jumbo Rocks, Desert Queen Mine, Geology Tour Road, Simi Dabah Sculpture Foundation, The World Famous Crochet Museum, and more.

Thanks Judy for saving my life during the Spring break, when all the campgrounds were full! The place is very nice, quite and isolated. If you are looking for some privacy, this is it. Not a 5 stars hotel, of course, but it has all the necessary - a platform for a tent or for laying down under the sun, mountains for short hiking, a toilet, and a stone labyrinth for meditation. I was staying there for almost a week, and can say honestly, that was the most relaxing and quite time in my entire life. Was worth it definitely.
