Disappointing in all aspects
The campsite was quite disappointing. One big problem was that it was falsely advertised. It said there is a table, but there is none, so it’s difficult to cook. The pictures on the ad are misleading: the towers and yurts are not accessible to campers; all you have is a patch of bare land. The host was not on premises and was difficult to reach; I left a voicemail for Ryan, who then left a voicemail for me.
We had reserved campsite #2, which is a few hundred feet from campsite #1, so would’ve been private enough. But on the day we arrived, Ryan switched us to a non-advertised spot just 40 feet from campsite #1. The group at site #1 was noisy, blaring music late into the night. I couldn’t sleep all night, so at 5:30 am, I had to tell them to please turn off their music. I had to do this on each of the 2 nights that we overlapped. Luckily they obliged.
If you’re just looking for a patch of land to sleep on, then this place would be suitable. However, for us, we would’ve been better off finding a secluded spot in the wilderness, where there is no amenities but at least we would’ve been able to enjoy the desert without noisy neighbors.
The previous owner of this house clearly had a lot of fun with its design, as soon as you pull up you see two castles and the property only gets better from there. This site is located in Joshua Tree and is very close to the national park. The current owners are new to the property and have many plans on how they are going to develop it. We highly recommend staying here and checking out the park!
This camp site is awesome; what a great concept. Ryan and Luke were very friendly and helpful! The site is close to town as well as to the park. Would definitely stay here again :)
Ryan and Luke were great hosts! Their estate was amazing/perfect for camping! I would definitely come back and try one of the towers or yurts. Very close the Joshua Tree. Thank you for having us!
