One of the few properties in Wonder Valley that lies next to its own mountain, Horse With No Name is the perfect spot to enjoy a weekend of relaxation, cookouts, and starry nights. Local sights and activities within 15-20 minutes from the camp include: a great, friendly hip bar (The Palms, Thurs-Sundays), the local pool (Memorial Day through Labor Day); a real oasis (on the grounds of the historic TwentyNine Palms Hotel); a local drive-in theater (year round); cafe's, pizza, and other amenities in the town of 29 Palms; and Joshua Tree National Park (the North entrance to the Park is 20 minutes from this site.) It's thirty minutes to the village of Joshua Tree (Joshua Tree Music Festival, the Joshua Tree Saloon); , 45 minutes to Yucca Valley, Landers and Pioneertown (Pappy and Harriet's, the Integratron, Big Rock); while Palm Springs and Coachella are 1 hour away, and you can drive through the Park to get there.

🐢If you feel like hiking , but don't feel like driving - just hike up the mountain next door! But bring water and your cell phone - it's steeper than it looks!  (PS - great cell reception in this area!)

🚨No vehicles are allowed on the property, except for the designated parking area East of/ behind the white trailer / campsite #1. This includes 4WD vehicles.  All vehicles must either park in the street (about 75 feet walk to campsite #2), or in this lot.

🚩The desert may be windy, so BRING REBAR to pin your tents down! Suggested rebar lengths are 1 - 2 feet long; they can be found at any hardware store.  There's a Home Depot in Yucca Valley;  there's also a good hardware store right in 29 Palms: Builder's Supply/ Parker's Building Supply.

🚨Sorry, No Dogs allowed.

🚨At the end of their stay, campers must pack out all their trash.  There is a dumpster at the end of the long driveway, in front of my neighbor's house, that's available for trash.  Failure to pack out your trash may subject you to a $25 cleaning fee.  Don't leave your trash etc behind - you may be fined.

🌵The camp is nestled among a combination of large rural properties and open BLM land. Views of the surrounding valley are unobstructed - perfect for sunsets and night viewing.

🌜Lunar eclipses here are AMAZING - but even "ordinary" nights are typically clear and starry. In the desert, many people rise early to see the sunrise and enjoy the cool of the morning - highly recommended! Situated in the high desert, summer temperatures are typically 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than in (low desert) Palm Springs or Coachella.

🌞Pro tip: check the weather before coming to the desert. This is especially true regarding windstorms. They are not frequent, but you will want a real hotel room during one of those - not camping!

🌸Plant life includes chaparral shrub and cacti. Spring runs from February through April, but can run through June up in the Park. Wildlife includes jackrabbits, kangaroo mice, coyotes, myriad birds - including roadrunners, quail and hummingbirds; bees, many types of lizards and geckos, and few snakes. (*In my 15 years visiting this location, I myself have never seen a rattlesnake, though I have heard of some. There are also non-poisonous, helpful snakes - typical of the desert.)

🐴HORSEBACK RIDING:

A neighbor (and fellow HipCamp host!) also offers local horseback trail riding. Let me know and I'll put you in touch with her. She's great, and can accommodate 3 or 4 riders.

✔️NOTES and RULES: (because I've had some "problem campers")

🌵"Leave no Trace": Please leave the camp as you found it. Bagged trash and output from the dry toilet can be left in the nearby dumpster in the road.

🚨Any construction materials on the property are not included in the campsites.  DO NOT TOUCH, DISTURB, TAKE, OR BORROW ANYTHING FROM THE CONSTRUCTION PILE.  *IT IS NOT YOURS.* YOU WILL BE FINED FOR DOING OTHERWISE.

🚨NO CARS are allowed on the property , except for the designated parking area behind the white trailer. This includes 4wd vehicles.  ALL vehicles must either park in the street (walk about 75 feet to campsite), or in the lot

 🚨 I highly recommend you have AAA or a similar roadside assistance service when visiting this site, or really any site in the Joshua Tree area. This  especially comes in handy if you get stuck in the sand.  To help avoid getting stuck in the sand, stay in the main road and OFF the property. which are generally marked with flags, reflectors, and solar lights.

🚨DO NOT LIE about how many guests will be camping with you in total. Same goes for lying about bringing a dog, or sneaking in pets. You will be charged double all rates, incur a cleaning fee of $50, and will be banned from my campsite.

🚨All campers are responsible for their own welfare and safety. When you confirm your booking, you and your guests agree to hold me harmless for any problems you may have on the property.

The host is very accomating and flexible which was helpful for us because we did this trip last minute. If all you’re doing is tent or car camping this is a great option for when the park is full.

This is a great place to camp if you are visiting Joshua Tree National Park and are unable or unwilling to reserve a camp site within the park months in advance. Jewel is a great host. She is very helpful with directions and provides all essentials at the site.

Jewel was really wonderful and we had a great time at her spot! You can pitch a tent anywhere on her 5 acre property which was an extra bonus for us because it really felt like you were alone out there. Incredible sunsets by the campfire too. Would definitely recommend!
