Located in the majestic desert of Wonder Valley, Moonlight Campground offers acres upon acres of exclusive private camp space.

This is a developing dispersed primitive site, and with your help, we hope to transform this spectacular picturesque property into a high end accommodation campground.

But until then, we currently provide a quiet bucolic setting filled with stars, the sky, fire rings, and beautiful mountain and desert views.

************************************************************************************************

The Space:

Moonlight Campground is right off the historic Amboy Road (Route 66) where once a upon a time Amboy Road was the only way to travel from Los Angeles to Las Vegas during the Hollywood golden age.

Today, Amboy Rd is still very much alive and in good use for travelers looking to diverge from the main highways and cross the epic Mojave National Preserve into Las Vegas. From the property you can reach Las Vegas using Amboy Road in 3 hours or less.

Moonlight Campground is approximately 10 minutes from the main entrance to the Joshua Tree National Park (Oasis Visitor Center). Also conveniently located is the historic Palms Restaurant & Bar less than 2 minutes away driving west on Amboy Rd.

************************************************************************************************

Guest Access:

Whether you're traveling in a smart car, prius (like myself), SUV, truck, or RV, the ground is flat and some areas are easily drive-able.

The campground can be reached from the main entrance through Midway Road.

************************************************************************************************

Amenities:

Water - Be aware that most campgrounds have no water, so you’ll need to bring your own. Water is available at Oasis Visitor Center and West Entrance. You can also buy large plastic containers of water in stores outside the park.

Campsites - Each camp space can accommodate 4 to 8 people, 2 to 4 tents, and 2 cars. Campsites can not be left unattended for more than 24 hours.

RVs - There are no hookups for recreational vehicles yet.

Showers - Coyote Corner has everything you'll ever need to remember your trip to Joshua Tree National Park. They provide showers, wood, water, souvenirs, maps and more. Coyote Corner is approximately 20 minutes from the campground.

************************************************************************************************

Other things to note:

Although this is a developing site, our current amenities features free parking, fire rings, stars, and private camp space.

Future developments in the works: Water, RV Hookups,  WIFI, Trash Bins, Bathrooms,  Showers, Picnic Tables, Assigned Tent Spaces, Raised Platforms, Lights, Outdoor Furniture, Signs.
