The Bird Line features a shared open-air shelter - a nice shady respite in the desert, central to seven reservable campsites . Sites are available to tent campers, self contained mobile units such as vans, small trailers, adventure vehicles and tiny homes. The shelter (repurposed homestead cabin) offers a gathering spot for campers to cook and socialize together, and offers shared hot and cold washing water, flush toilet, and bathtub. Come enjoy the raw desert - the views are gorgeous. It is a quiet place. Come think, write, and make art - star gaze, and sit around the campfire.
When booking, select the site that best suits your needs:
1) and 2) - best for vans and adventure rigs
3) - best for car and tent
4) and 5) best for small trailers - site 5) for tiny houses
6) park near the shelter and walk in to pitch tent
7) see #HammockHut @thebirdline
We look forward to hosting you.

The vibe at The Bird Line

Micheal opened his campground recently and he still works on his project to make it better.
The booked campsite was easily accessible by car. Kitchen and bathroom have hot water. He also gave me good tips what to do around there. I had a very quiet night there.
It was a great stay.
Staying at the Birdline was a vacation. It reminded me of how comfortable the simple life can be.
I stayed at site 3. I enjoyed its open view to the west. The Birdline is essentially surrounded by the desert, so finding a good view isn’t hard.
The sun was a constant, but the wind was not. I had one day that was dead calm and another with 18mph winds. If it’s forecasted for wind, make sure you’ve got a rainfly (blowing sand) and guy lines.
The communal space offered a welcome reprieve from the wind and sun. A few of the things I appreciated about the communal space are it’s minimalistic white rooms, ample cooking space with a sink, available desks where I could get a little work done, and the porch, which is perfect for a cup of tea, out of the wind.
The host Micheal is a man of intention with a clear vision. The Birdline is not just a place to camp, it’s a concept.
Awesome little camp setup, if you're looking for something close to Joshua Tree but can't find anything in the park, this is your place! Quiet and easy to get to, it's very close to the Oasis visitor center.
