Sky Camp is like a home without walls, offering panoramic desert views that will take your breath away. The camp is situated high on the hills of the Bartlett Mountain Range and offers great views of Joshua Tree National Park, just minutes away. 

Our eclectic offerings include four individual campsites with picnic tables, charcoal grills, fire pits, and of course, art. We also provide an outdoor shower (cold water) and bathroom with a flushing toilet and sink, and a large, covered, concrete patio equipped with a picnic table, a large charcoal grill, a wood burning stove, and a comfortable seating area. The Big-Rig Lounge offers shelter in inclement weather, and the Sky Swing is a perfect place to snuggle up and star-gaze. Art installations can be enjoyed all around the campground. Space is plentiful for parking and spreading out at each campsite. Campsites can be reserved individually, or groups (up to 12 people) can reserve the entire campground. PLEASE NOTE, IF YOUR GROUP IS BOOKING MORE THAN 2 SITES, YOU MUST RESERVE THE ENTIRE CAMPGROUND. Contact us for group pricing and availability. If you're camping in a camper van or small trailer, campsite #4 was made just for you, just keep in mind there are no hook-ups. 

Sky Camp is surrounded with open space and situated next to BLM land. There are endless outdoor recreational opportunities, including hiking, biking, bouldering, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, dark starry nights, and quiet solitude. The village of Joshua Tree is only a few miles down the road and offers unique options for dining and shopping. Most of our businesses are independent, locally owned and charged by the positive forces of Joshua Tree ;-)

You can follow us on Instagram at skycampjoshuatree for more photos and information on the area. And mountain bikers can check out the Bartlett Mountain Loop on mtbproject's website for a trail you pick up directly from Sky Camp. It includes a virtual tour and downloadable map!

Great view of the valley from the site. Awesome camp spot for group getaways or solo alike. About a half mile of dirt road before arriving at the camp gate so be ready for that. Host was incredibly kind and helpful. I’ll definitely be back here again soon.

We loved staying at the Skycamp. We were bummed that we couldn't find a spot to camp in JT but decided that Skycamp was much better, more private and a lot less people.

The campground was relatively secluded. Our neighbors on the other sites in the campground were friendly. I liked the gate to get on the property, it definitely gave a feeling of privacy. The hammocks were not there and the bathrooms were missing toilet paper however.

Response from Kimberly , the Host, on November 22nd, 2021

Thanks for the feedback, Justin. I'm not sure why the toilet paper went missing, but we'll do our best to be sure it doesn't happen again. And the hammock chairs couldn't hold up under the UV, so we're replacing them with a stronger swing. Stay tuned!

Artsy desert camping

Amazing valley views of the desert. Campsites are well spaced out and there are fun interactive art installations throughout the space. It was nice to go in the Big Rig lounge for shade and shelter or hanging out in the main common area while we used the charcoal grill for some burgers. A cold shower was refreshing in the desert mornings, and it felt like a treat to have a fully functional bathroom. Beware of the wind! Other really cool bubble tent type stays on the property as well.

Camping with running water!

Cute spot!! Love the view

Pros: I liked the clean bathroom and a cold outdoor shower, so great during the morning when it’s hot and you just want an outdoor camping spot with great amenities and few people. If I came back it would be after camping in joshua tree and wanting a night of camping with the running water to feel fresh again- and I would buy out all the spots with friends as not to feel like I’m intruding. I like all the art and how they designed everything. Very cool spot for a small group to hang out.

Cons: I was a little disappointed quiet hours started at 9 pm, I’m usually the kind of camper that likes to stay up late and laugh with friends and it definately wasn’t that type of camping…everyone was asleep by 9. We also couldn’t have a fire and the hammock chairs were not there like pictured (bummer because those looked cute!). The camping spaces are a lot closer than they look in the picture which also felt a little awkward, but the other people seemed chill.

Response from Kimberly , the Host, on November 22nd, 2021

Thanks for all the feedback, Heidi. We welcome good times and laughter at all hours, just want to keep the vibe chill and peaceful for all. And the hammock chairs couldn't hold up under the UV, so we're replacing them with a stronger swing. Stay tuned!

Beautiful view, quiet & peaceful

Beautiful view, flush toilet, running water. Lots of room between you & your camp neighbors. Bummer there were strict rules on a camp fire (we used a propane stove and a charcoal grill for cooking), but the first night we were there it was windy af. There is wildlife there - we saw some rabbits, tiny squirrels and a tarantula. And the tp & soap ran out after the first 24 hours (we were there two nights) without any replenishments to be seen - so be prepared with extra tp and hand soap just in case. I would highly recommend for a fun girls trip or couples get away. Not so much for kiddos. Excited to visit again!

Hipcamper Kimberly
Response from Kimberly , the Host, on November 22nd, 2021

Thanks for the feedback, Tammie. We always stock plenty of toilet paper and soap (especially in these times) so I'm not sure why the toilet paper and soap were depleted so quickly. We'll do our best to be sure it doesn't happen again. And we follow the guidelines from our local fire officials - hopefully the fire ban won't be in effect on your next visit.
