The ULTIMATE luxury campground experience! Featured on HGTV: The Castle House Estate brings outdoor living to another level located in the heart of Joshua Tree, just minutes from the National Park. This unique medieval compound blends indoor-outdoor living with an emphasis on entertaining. The Castle House Estate is situated on eight picturesque acres, surrounded by many more private undeveloped acres.
The Castle House Estate - Tent Camp sits on a concrete pad (10ftx10ft) and is surrounded by a additional three-foot platform. You can also choose to camp on the ground, leaving the platform available for another use.
There is a Tiny Home in between both campsites for shared use, a wood burning stove with a GSI outdoor coffee pot (8 cups) and coffee of course! In addition, each campsite has a special fire pit area where you can enjoy a few cold ones and roast s'mores. Firewood is on a friendly first come, first served basis. We recommend you add to the pile.
The main house, which is under construction, and our 6 additional tiny homes on the property. The campsite has a portable restroom, off of the pagoda, that is 100% guest accessible. Safe clean and ready for use. Follow the lighted path for nighttime use.
Tent, sleeping bags and blow up mattress available for extra fee. (availability is limited and must be arranged prior)

The vibe at The Castle House Tent Camp (HGTV)
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
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 :)
Disappointing in all aspects
The campsite was quite disappointing. One big problem was that it was falsely advertised. The description said there is a hot shower, but there was no shower at all, forcing us to go into town to pay $20 for a shower, which increased the cost of our stay by 150%. It said there is potable water, which turns out to be a questionable jug of water in the pagoda; I would not drink from that. Although host Ryan said there is running water by a bench, I tried every spigot on the property but no water flowed out of any. Luckily we had brought some water with us, but not enough for cooking. 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; when we couldn’t find water or shower, I left a voicemail for Ryan, who then left a voicemail for me describing where he thought there was running water (in the end, we still couldn’t find any).
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 and not any amenities, 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 also no amenities but at least we would’ve been able to enjoy the desert without noisy neighbors.
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!
