Great campsite in Twentynine Palms. Less than a half hour to the Joshua Tree park entrance. The site has a clean toilet to use and nice amenities. And cute dogs!

This was a great stay! Very quiet, clean and comfortable. Samuel was a great host, replied to any questions and was very friendly! His dog is very friendly as well! We will most definitely be coming back for a stay!

Had a great stay this weekend. Was my first time camping so I wanted access to water, bathrooms, shower and shower. Porta potty was very clean, outdoor shower was cute and the dishwashing station and sink was super helpful. It was about 20 mins from the park but much more private and quiet as the park campsite was fully booked and sites were pretty close together

Great stay. Awesome spot, and sunset. It was low key and a great desert spot. Reasonably priced, and a Lovely time. Would camp again.

The location is convenient to the park. However, the location and morning sunrise were the only good parts. Samuel was kind and helpful, quickly bringing us camping chairs when the table at our site didn't have anywhere to sit. The campsites are on a sandlot with not much else around. We unfortunately didn't get any sleep because there were constant dogs barking all night and a porta potty truck driving through at 6am. If the site cost less then I would understand, but at the price there needs to be more of value.

Excellent place to camp, centrally located to all the Joshua Tree sights. Clean porta-potty on site along with great wind shelter and fire pit at each campsite made it a great place to enjoy desert evenings

Samuel was a fantastic host. Everything was clean and set up perfectly before our arrival. He briefly stopped by to share a few tips about maximizing our firewood.
The site itself is great. It's close enough to the main Joshua Tree roads that you don't need to be an experienced camper while still delivering that much desired feeling of being out in the desert. There is also a hand-washing station, outhouse and outdoor shower just a few hundred feet from each of the camping sites.
Definitely recommend the Watering Hole and plan to return!
