The coolest campground in the park by far. Helpful tip on busy days when searching for a site: CHECK THE TAGS & THE SITE! Some sites are set back out of view & some campers don't remove the tags making it look like they're occupied and they're not!

Hipcamper Alyssa

Jumbo Rocks is awesome - the campsites are very spacious and you've got great access to climbing. Highly suggest a night walk as well! The stars are unreal.

Hipcamper Nick

Honey Bees at Jumbo Rocks are extra thirsty and always looking for a bit of water. Be sure to put away water bottles and anything wet or they'll swarm to it in a matter of minutes. Beeware!

Hipcamper Ivan

This is my favorite part of the park. Skull rock trail is only 1 mile rt.
Site 62-64 is the best for group camping.

Hipcamper Grace

Loved how close this site was to the rocks! Agree that one should take advantage of a night hike if camping here since you won't have to go way out of your way and can make it back without difficulty. Arrived on a Friday morning this summer and was surprised at how many spots were already claimed - arrive early if you plan on staying the weekend!

Hipcamper Anna

I camped here with my sister the other weekend. We drove to the park from LA (roughly a 3 hour drive for those wanting to know. We stopped for coffee and to see the giant dinosaur statues). By the time we got there at 11am Saturday morning the camp grounds were already full. We had to stay at a private campground called Joshua Lake (it was...fine). Sunday we set up at Jumbo Rocks once the weekend crowd started to clear out! Great campsite. The rocks provide privacy from other campers and great cover from any wind. Each site has a fire pit and the toilets are kept pretty clean. Super easy parking and awesome central location in the park.

Hipcamper Matthew

Jumbo Rocks is RAD! so many rocks to jump around and climb on. Feels like your on another planet

Hipcamper Ivan

Jumbo Rocks is the best place to camp. First come first serve basis, beautiful stars at night. If you're a photographer trying to capture some magnificent star trails, this is it.
