Top shelf authentic camping experience. Pristine raw nature, connect with yourself and for a moment forget about all our current troubles. Everything heals itself while listening to the wind. 

Percentage of your stay will go to families affected by AUTISM. Closest private campsite to Southern entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, about 5 miles. 20 perfect acres to get away from it all. Chiriaco Summit exit has bathrooms, water and supplies. Land is very private, 360° surrounded by hills and mountains that are fun to explore! 2,000 ft in elevation. Cell phone reception to stay connected. Sandy areas next to many Jacob Trees (Ocotillos) for natural shade. 

Six designated campsites with fire pits. Enjoy the light show as the sun goes down. No light pollution where the Colorado Desert meets the Mojave, making for crystal clear skies. Bring your camera equipment! Campers have been taking awesome shots, very much appreciated! Dirt easement road about 3.5 miles, 15 minutes from gas station to property. 4x4 or AWD vehicles only, Red Canyon Jeep Trail.

Benjamin’s land is beautiful. Peaceful, raw.. exactly the kind of escape we needed from the city. We got lucky and there were not any other campers in the other lot so we had the place to ourselves. We hiked around the mountains on the property and just enjoyed the pure serenity of the place. The stars are incredible and worth the trip on their own.
The road is rough and the site can be hard to find initially but completely worth it. Definitely recommend 4x4 vehicles only. Make sure you have everything you need because it’s ~30min drive in and out.
The site is close to the southern entrance of Joshua tree national park but there are not any Joshua trees on the property so don’t go with that expectation.
10/10 recommend overall!! And be sure to LNT.

Thank you so much for your kind words! You are welcome back any time. I've been thinking about changing the name to 'Jacob Tree Camping' in honor of the Ocotillos on the property.

Ben’s land is great! He is working to make it even more inviting by adding a few new features for campers. Currently there are two separate sites with fire pits, both have plenty of room for multiple tents. We happened to book a night when Ben, the owner, was there so both sites were in use. Ben was a considerate neighbor and even brought us some ice when the closest gas station was out! I definitely hope to camp here again, I look forward to the improvements that Ben is planning! Thanks for sharing this great camp!

Benjamin met us close by and guided us through the jeep road to the campsite and walked us around. There's not a lot to it (not that there should be), but it was very clean, well kept, and spacious. You're far enough away from the interstate that you barely hear it. I mean barely. There is very little light pollution and the stars shined bright.
