Dry Camping at the Oasis
Don’t, just don’t.
I hesitated paying almost $150 to dry camp at the Oasis but it looked really inviting. Unfortunately, the fun pictures on the website are wholly inconsistent with the reality of the place. Everything is basically dirty, grungy and poorly kept up. The hot tub was green with algae. The shower looks nothing like the one pictured and is absolutely dangerous. It is a gas powered, instant hot water type shower with zero instructions. I asked the caretaker but she said she didn’t use it and didn’t know how it worked but “people seem to figure it out.” This shower is a severe burning hazard as it puts out blistering hot water instantly unless it is properly adjusted. A tragedy (and a lawsuit) just waiting to happen. The wind was so strong that we could not have used the hot spring even if we’d wanted to. I have a feeling it is often windy because there was a large overturned trailer resting prominently in the camp area the caretaker said blew over in the wind - awhile ago. There was an approximately 15’ diameter and 10’ deep sink hole in the middle of an area where people drive that was poorly marked with some metal fence stakes. The kitchen facility was filthy. Water piped to the sink came from a hose running from a spigot in the ground thru an RV filter. Might have been safe but given the rest of the issues, I wasn’t going to risk it. I believe most of the reviews and photos on the HipCamp site are fake and/or staged. Would love my money back.

Amazing oasis in the desert
Frank’s place is one of the best camping experiences I’ve had. The hot springs and pool are absolutely amazing. The views are gorgeous and the amenities are more than we expected. Lovely place that we will be coming back to many times as a weekend getaway. Just 24 hours here was the ultimate relaxing experience.

Overall, we had a good experience. The hot springs were magical, staff super helpful, and ammenites great. We recommend bringing ear plugs - if its windy , the noise is super loud, espically in the tents.

Overall the pool was the main event for me. However I also enjoyed the inviting nature of the entire property. It was peaceful. The containers with all kitchen accommodations and refrigerator make cooking very convenient. Plus I was able to build a campfire. Very fun and unique experience!

Couldn’t have asked for a better desert adventure. Frank has put so much love into this magical place, and Zev was a grounding presence throughout our stay. This oasis is a true gem. Felt private, isolated, special, and we loved the hot spring!

It’s a beautiful place… the pond and hot spring tub are beautiful.. At first the hot spring tub was too hot.. till I learned how to cool it down.. it was really cold at night… and the front gate was a pain… but the host was very nice and very helpful all in all we enjoyed our adventure in a beautiful place.. the location was also convenient for spending the day in Joshua tree or running into Palm Springs… oh and we’re old.. like in or 60s so that might have something to do with the mixed review

We loved our stay in the spacious Celtic yurt. It was cozy and we kept warm, even during the winter time. The hot spring and pool were a unique treat- soaking & paddling around in a pool in the desert. An oasis indeed!

It was a very cute place. Very eclectic and cozy. Would be a fun place to take the kids. The yurts were lovely. Cozy and clean and nicely furnished. The shared areas were very nice as well. Overall the property is smaller than I expected, but it is a lovely respite to get away from it all. The stars were so pretty.

This property is amazing, has so many amenities and a beautiful HOT spring tub. The oasis is spacious and has lots of areas to camp. The host was super responsive as well. I felt super safe here and it was a 10/10 glamping experience.

Amazing spot
We had so much fun here! Great, peaceful spot to lie out on a paddle board, soak in the hot spring, do yoga, cook, and have a fire. Frank was really helpful with coordinating and providing all info needed for the stay. I’m already dreaming about coming back!

I spent my 30th birthday here at the Yurt and this was the most magical experience! Frank and Tiffany really made the place special. It was absolutely breathtaking and worth every single penny! The water was warm, the swings were such a fun touch, and the place had everything we needed! (Fridge, cooking supplies, etc.). The bed in the Yurt was comfortable and warm. 10/10 would recommend and we will be back!!! THANK YOU!

Great spot - had a very comfortable night in a yurt and loved swimming in the warm lagoon and hanging in the hot springs pool. Very handy if you’re visiting Joshua Tree or Palm Springs.

Truly a Desert Oasis!
What an amazing desert oasis! My fiancé and I had the most incredible weekend glamping at Frank's property. His hospitality (as well as David and Frankie) were outstanding and the accommodations were exactly what we were hoping for - the yurt is clean and comfortable, with a cozy feeling of seclusion and privacy. There is an unbelievable natural hot spring just a short walk from where we stayed and it truly felt like we were in a desert oasis. We drove to Joshua Tree National Park for hiking and adventure during the day and were so happy to come back to our peaceful and relaxing campsite under the stars at night. I HIGHLY recommend Frank's property and we will absolutely be back. Thank you!

Swim and stars
Loved this place! The swimming water was so nice, and so was the attached hot spring (the smaller pool). The toilet and shower were nice as well (as far as camping goes). We camped and cooked on a camp stove so I didn’t use the kitchen or amenities otherwise so can’t speak on that area + there was a fire ban (for good reason). There are pretty lights around the area at night as well, so you can walk around and see where you’re going, which I appreciate! Only thing is it’s a bit pricey for 2 people to open camp (you basically park and set up anywhere on the land) but if you had a bigger group it would be great. The whole site and area was really quiet and calm when we were there, and Frank responded to messages and calls immediately and seemed v nice as well! Would love to go back!

The Celtic Yurt on Frank’s property was amazing! My wife and I stayed for a night in early October, and the weather was perfect. It got down into the upper 70s at night, so we were comfortable and able to sleep well. The hot spring and hot tub were both very private and away from any other properties, and all of the other shared spaces were clean and convenient to use. This was a great stay and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to camp near Joshua Tree!

Perfect Romantic Getaway!
LOVED staying in the king yurt at this desert oasis! My boyfriend and I enjoyed a romantic getaway at this beautiful site. Frank is an incredible host - met us at the entrance and showed us when we arrived. Favorite part was the hot spring with a hot tub attached. After relaxing in the water, we made a delicious dinner in the kitchen before winding down with a glass of wine by to the fire pit. Thank you for your hospitality, Frank! We’ll be back.

Amazing property
We absolutely LOVED staying at this incredible property. The yurt is beautifully set up, very comfortable and a great glamping experience. Even more amazing is the rest of the property!! The highlight was definitely the incredible hot spring lake. It's like a giant swimming pool with warm water and was absolutely magical! The communal kitchen area was great as well. I'm already planning to bring other friends back at some point to experience this amazing property. Highly recommended!

The territory is beautiful and well thought through. Lots of fun areas to read, chill, swim, or sunbathe. The Yurt was beautiful, clean and cozy, with a comfortable bed, but we came in the end of July and couldn’t sleep because of the heat. Lesson learned - if you are an AC person wait until the summer is over. Kitchen and amenities were amazing, lots of utensils, spices, coffee, so well organized for any one who wants to cook. Clean bathroom and shower were a huge plus! Regardless the heat, we loved our stay! Thank you, Frank!
