Campsite was great, but the road to it is a little rough. Not a great match for a low-clearance vehicle, but a nice place to stay if you've got a well-equipped car.

The hosts are so nice and accommodating! It's very peaceful camping here and it's clean. You can explore what's around their property, and you're very close to the Joshua Tree Natl Park entrance. I could see the stars at night and both the sunset and sunrise were beautiful. I even found a jackrabbit and a cottontail hopping around. You have to drive on a dirt road to get here, but it's something my sedan could handle. It's definitely accessible.

Todd and Andrea were amazing hosts! They came out to check on us when we got into camp, even though we got in after 11pm and texted us again in the morning to see if we needed anything. As others have said, the roads into camp are a pretty bumpy and we had to take them slow even in a high clearance vehicle. The location is secluded and quiet with amazing views of the town below. West entrance to JTNP is less than 3 miles from the site and town is about the same distance.

Unfortunately we had to pack up early due to high winds, but the hosts offered to give us a refund or a free night the next time we come. We will definitely come back!

Another note - Site #2 offers a little more privacy, but Site #1 has the spigot and port-a-potty on site which is shared with site #2.

great site! Andrea and Todd are very accommodating and are super quick to respond. We did not encounter any issues with them or the campsite. Great views, lots of desert flora to check out, super rad views of the stars at night, and its pretty close to the west entrance of the national park. some people mentioned that the roads were bad. I could see it being an issue if it were raining and muddy, but honestly, an average four door sedan will be able to make the trip, just go slowly! The site itself had a propane grill (super convenient) and even a power outlet via extension cord. The port a potty is super clean and stocked with air freshener, tp, hand sanitizer. the only downside was the wind, but thats beyond anyone's control and made for a memorable trip to say the least.

Laid back, beautiful way to spend a night in the desert. Todd + Andrea were so welcoming. I'd love to come back and climb or just scramble up the wash on their property. Thanks y'all.
