Love this camp ground and love our friendly host Hook. This place was perfect for a camp stay in Joshua Tree. The sunset and sunrise here is beautiful. Near town so don’t worry if you forgot ice or food. Hook made us feel so welcomed and we definitely enjoyed it.

"Camp Ruffin' It" was my first camping experience ever. Well really I should say 'glamping'! Hook was there for anything we needed, at the same time we had our privacy too. Weather was perfect, shorts for the day and light jacket for the night. Hook set up some games around the site we played while cooking out and listening to music with friends. Their were even dogs running around greeting everyone! It was my buddy's birthday and we just had the best weekend. I highly recommend this site for anyone looking in the Joshua Tree area. We were so fortunate to have such a great host. Can't wait to come back !!!

Staying at Camp Ruffin It was ideal. Hook was extremely accommodating and helpful and the vibe on the property was super chill. We had two dogs with us and they had the freedom to roam around off leash while we were at the camp site. Hook was full of good information about Joshua Tree and the surrounding area. I was told we could not bring our dogs into the park by several friends, but that is not the case. We were able to bring our dogs, they just aren’t allowed on the trails, but there are plenty of picnic areas and campgrounds with ample places to roam with pups. Hook’s property and set-up is great! He has a kitchen, indoor and out door sitting areas, two fire places and plenty of outdoor games available. (Disk golf, horse shoes, bocce ball, etc) his property is well taken care of and I’m excited to go back to see the new additions he has planned. He is enjoyable to hang with and one morning even brought us hot wet towels to clean up with and warm us up! One day he directed us to Desert Hot Springs to massage and soak in the warm pools and was happy to watch our pups for a few hours for us. 5 gold stars from us, Hook, thank you for making our vacation perfect!

I met some friends in Joshua tree to camp. We have big dogs. We were attracted to camp Ruffin it because it claimed a leash free environment. Considering the fact that the park is restrictive for dogs, we decided to give this a try. We were not disappointed. I was thrilled with the space and the dog friendly environment. On top of that, Hook and Tonya were awesome. They bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable and they were knowledgeable about the area. We grilled them about everything lol. Super helpful and friendly.
I personally loved the campsites. Plenty of space and scenery. It's close to Joshua tree (the town) and a short drive to the park.
Hook was kind enough to dog sit while we went to the hot springs. My dog loved camping and running around. I will go back and also recommend Camp Ruffin it to my friends with dogs. 🐶🐕🏕

Hook is an incredible host, and his site is the perfect place to relax and explore in the desert. I'd recommend checking out the national park and exploring downtown Joshua Tree. Hook was super helpful and available to answer any questions. I can't recommend this camp enough!

Wow, what an amazing experience. Hook is not only a top-notch host, but also a fun and easy going guy to hang out with! His land is beautiful and not near any developments so you really feel like you're camping in with the Joshua trees. His land has a 360 unobstructed view of the Mohave. I've never seen stars so bright at night! He is also super close to the West Joshua Tree National Park entrance. We will be back!!!

Camp Ruffin' it was AWESOME! My friends and I had a great time, Hook is a phenomenal host, and everything went very smoothly. He was incredibly communicative from the get-go, super friendly, and a joy to be around. The site(s) are really well maintained, with lots of amenities to make your stay enjoyable, it's just around the corner for the park entrance and a few minutes drive from town. Would definitely recommend and stay again!
