Hipcamper Ben

This is one of the larger campsites, and most crowded, but for good reason. If you're looking to climb classic routes without having to drive, this is the spot for you.

Hipcamper Jeff

There are some solid sites here. Definitely a little more crowded than some of the other options in the park, but the sunrise/sunsets were unbelievable, and even better with a quick climb atop the surrounding rocks.

Hipcamper Basak

Great place to camp in Joshua Tree. You are all surrounded with rocks and boulders. There are few places you can find shade during the day also. You just need to look for it. Also, you might have rock climbers repelling down to your campsite in the morning.

Hipcamper Whitney

This is a great campground. It's not too deep in the park if your coming from the main entrance so it makes it an easy drive into town in case you want to explore the quaint and quirky town of Joshua Tree.

Hipcamper Hungry

I definitely have to come back here and climb one day! All of the park is gorgeous and there are tons of campsites to choose from out of the 9 campgrounds. I love that most are first-come-first serve as well. We got there at night and couldn't find a site because it was the week after Easter so we camped for free at the BLM land not too far from the park. The next day we got to the park early and started scouting for campsites.

TIP: go early and walk around the campsites to see who is leaving when.

This campsite was awesome though with a lot of privacy and lots of amazing boulders and rocks nearby to climb on. Would highly recommend!

Hipcamper Kristin

Bring plenty of water, especially in the warmer months. The back sites get the best sunset views, but the front sites get the morning sunshine.

Hipcamper Adam

Arrive early, if you go on a weekend, but not too early.
Some times Friday Night campers are leaving as you arrive, but I've found most leave around 9-11am, don't arrive so early that bother the campgrounds while they sleep(5am-9am), you will only have to wait around until they are awake and packed up anyway.
