Serene, pet and kid friendly, off-grid private-land camping under a billion stars, at the base of mountains, on 5 rural acres with incredible views, near Joshua Tree National Park. Fencer is set up as 3 small spots AND NOTE: the Smoking Area is at 5A by your site. Park small cars or a small van along the fence which makes a nice windbreak, or park in one of the tent spots. Or park outside the fence if you want more camp space. This site hugs the property's fence so you have an incredible view of the Park mountains. All spots at Fencer share 1 firepit, a BBQ pit, a small table + chairs. On property is a flush toilet, porta potty, solar shower, sinks, water tower with potable water if you forget your own. Great cell service; no wi-fi.  Use rocks you find around to anchor tents. Community Area with shared tables, chairs, 2 bbq grills.  Grab a folding table and extra chairs for your site from by the big beige bin near George the RV. Hike up the mountain to further enjoy stunning views of Joshua Tree, JT Lake, the whole valley. Bring firewood for the large firepit at the top, with large rocks to sit on. The general store is at Yucca Mesa at Aberdeen - 2 miles away. Spacious beauty, privacy and stargazing in the desert, at the base of Copper Mountain. Solar lights sparkle at night. Honor the Spirits, Nature, Mountains and Desert. Honor others with quiet after 10pm in winter; 11pm in summer.

Nice spot. Quiet. Great stars. A fair number of campsites in a smallish space. No problems with noise though. Host was communicative. Amenities clean and as described.

The site was well taken care of, and the location was great - just 12 or so minutes from Joshua Tree. I would have liked a little clearer directions at the end as it says you will see a yellow daisy cabin, but it would have been helpful to have known that you should drive towards the yellow daisy cabin and that the sites are inside of the fence where the cabin sits. Overall, it was a good site, and the night sky views were spectacular!

This campground rocked! Spaced out enough from the other sites. Fire pit supplied for the site :) very clean bathrooms. Close enough to Joshua Tree. Thanks Judy!

A delightful little campground! The shower and toilet were well maintained, the porta-potty was the cleanest I've ever used in my life, and I loved the solar lights scattered around! Winds were very strong, especially when the sun was out, so that's something to consider when packing and choosing a tent. Also the campsite was a good bit further from Joshua Tree National Park than expected. If you're looking for total isolation, this may not be the site for you because there are at least a few campsites in use at any given time, and they aren't all that far from each other.

Great spot for the exploring traveler. Safe for pets, comfortable and cozy. It’s very windy at night but you’re in the desert so it comes with the territory.

I definitely recommend if you’re in the area. The sunset is unreal! You have all amenities and it’s very well laid out. The perfect combination of rustic and comfort. Beautiful place to wake up!
