Primitive camping at it's best! Dave's campsite is a secluded 2.5 acre site located 15 minutes from Joshua Tree park. Only 3 miles of dirt road that is accessible to low profile vehicles. It is a especially beautiful and private place in the hills between Lander’s and Hidden River straight east of Flamingo Heights. This is a great option for camping in a quiet and private area away from the crowded public camp grounds. Only natural desert and star filled night sky to see in every direction.

Dave's campground was such a good break from being in the city. I love when a place can make me feel like I'm in the middle of nowhere and honestly I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy more of the peace and quiet... and also some extra hammock time would have been nice too, but he's got quite a popular spot and pretty booked up.

It's nicely located relatively close to Joshua Tree National Park and had I had more time, I would have stayed there and went climbing.

Keep in mind it can get a pretty windy and you'll want to make sure to take a look at that before starting a campfire. Theres a cute little market about 2 miles from the campsite that sells firewood. I had the fire ring set up, but didn't get to light it because of the winds and spent most of the evening either cocooned in my hammock or nestled away from the wind in my car.

Theres a couple little spots to set up camp and more then enough room to have bigger groups.
Great spot for an over night adventure (beautiful sunrises and sunsets) or a weekend of relaxation.

So much space!Found a spot that wasnt so windy for my tent.Hammock sunset views pt 1Beautiful big Joshua Tree on the road to the camp

Nice to feel the sense of security of boondocking on private land. Excellent star gazing.

This spot is highly recommended for anyone who wants to really get away. The spot is primitive but with all the right supplies it's a comfortable quiet beatiful spot. We went out to Joshua Tree for the full moon and this spot was perfect for watching the sunset in the West and right after the moon rise on the East.
Dave was super at directing us to the spot....after getting there I was like this is easy to find.

Sunset.... Fire pitFull Moon right after rising
