Tent camped at this location with my wife and kids. It is a truly amazing spot. There are 360 degree views all around. Pretty much flat area covered in short creosote and juniper bushes. Its an open space with no pre-selected camp sites. We decided on an open location that had a pre-existing fire ring. Days are hot during the spring. Night time was great! This is a great location to do some night time star gazing. There are no obstructions for miles, and the nigh sky is bursting with stars every where! Kids loved it. The sunset was also amazing!
We did get stuck in some soft sand as we were leaving the site. Be aware of your cars capabilities before going. We have a Toyota Prius, you have to keep your speed up to get through the softer areas.There are no signs as of this review. If you have issues you can call Ben and he will talk clarify where you are going.
There are no facilities or water on the property. be sure you come prepared to survive for a while. You are only about a 10-15 minute ride to town if you do need anything.
Overall if you wish to get away from it all. or if you want an open space to play with some motorized toys. This is a great place to do it!!

Enjoying the cooler evening right before sunset.Getting set up for dinner and a fire. Camp site at sunsetAppreciating this beautiful place with the ones I love.

At first I was very excited to camp out in the Joshua Tree area in something that wasn't a close cluster of sites. I messaged Benjamin a day or so before my drive out there asking if we needed 4WD—something I don't have—to access the campsite. Benjamin didn't respond and there was no mention needing a 4WD vehicle in the posting, so I figured it was safe for me to go.

Drove out, called Benjamin at the first intersection I came across. He asked me what car I was in, I told him, and he responded "yeah you're not going to be able to get back there because it rained last week." He mentioned how he told Hipcamp to take his listing down, which apparently they did not? And that he would "just have to refund me." By that time, my very not-4WD car was stuck in the wash at this intersection and I sat waiting until after dusk waiting to be plucked out of the sand.

Tried to be a considerate and mindful guest by asking about the state of the site. Was really excited about spending a night outside the city to watch the meteor shower. Instead I spent hundreds for a tow. What's the kind of recourse for this situation? Where both Hipcamp and my host have managed to botch communication? I think I stumbled into a fluke of a situation but this was so, deeply, disappointing.
