The vibe at The Landing Zone
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The site was awesome, and Philip was very friendly and helpful! The tent camping spot sits in a low lying area, so it's protected from the wind. There are some chairs and tables in the site, which give plenty of space for cooking, eating, etc. You're right next to the Landers Brew Co., which has great beer on tap and lots of friendly locals! The site was still very quiet though, and we all slept great! Only about 20 mins from the Joshua Tree NP entrance, and close to the Pioneer Village and other local attractions. We'll definitely stay here again!
Only the most adventurous and brew loving need apply!
Phillip was amazing! So welcoming and friendly. He had the site all ready for our arrival and was on hand to pour a brew at Landers Brew Co just a short walk away. The site had a firepit, a stove, tables and soft chairs so we didn't even have to pack half our gear! We camped on a Saturday and were able to meet some of the friendliest locals and listen to some great live music. The site was still quiet enough that our kids slept soundly. Being only 20 minutes from Pioneertown and Joshua Tree National Park, this site is a perfect spot for fun-loving families.
All around, an adventurous and fun little site! We will definitely be back for our next trip to the desert!
The Landing Zone was an adventure. Philip was a great host, and even bought us a beer! The site is a walk up, which worked OK for this trip, but if your planning on sleeping in your car could be a problem. It's also stumbling distance from the Lander Brewing Company, essentially tucked in a dune just past the parking lot. The LBC had great music and a lively friendly crowd, that could all be heard from the campsite. We were lulled to sleep by a Celtic-Ska fusion band the night we stayed. All of this should not be a deal breaker for adventurous campers or people looking for some high desert shenanigans. It's a great launching off point to explore some of the other attractions in Landers, like giant rock, or the Intergratron. We had a great time at the LBC, but the heat chased us out of tents bright and ugly, so we didn't test the if the stove worked or not.
Landing Zone was an awesome place to camp! When it's high season in Joshua Tree and there are few campsites you can book ahead, this gave us nice reassurance we would have a place to land...no pun in intended. Phillip was a wonderful host and was very accommodating. Also, it's fun being so close to Lander's Brew so you can end your day of hiking with an ice cold locally brewed beer and listen to live music. I would definitely come back again. Pro Tip: Bring earplugs no matter where you camp as there are coyotes that sometimes howl at night.
A perfect alternative to staying in JT National Park, or an adventure all its own. Hosts are awesome, make sure you’re set up but give you your space.
Lander’s Brewery is actually on the property, so you can camp and still be secluded or hop on over for a drink, live music, a game of pool. It quiets down early, and there are a few spots to camp (tent or trailer), do don’t let that deter you.
Small desert town, don’t expect anything fancy - but it’s good people, scattered Joshua trees, pet friendly and a spot you feel safe with that has a few extras. Worked perfect woh our trailer, a group of 6 plus a kid and dog. Felt ok leaving our stuff out all day when we headed out.
20 mins from JT National Forest and 10 mins from nearest towns. I’d recommend it, and hope to go back myself.
