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!

Sky camp was prefect for our one night getaway! Bathrooms were clean, site was well kept and tastefully arranged. Plus the views was beautiful! We had our dog with us as well and the site was perfect for the 3 of us.

Amazing view, but strong winds

The amenities were amazing and extremely convenient. The view can’t be beat, especially at sunrise! Communication with the host was straightforward and the check in instructions were helpful.

The only thing to keep in mind is that due to elevation, the wind and cold can be intense, especially if you travel during the winter (as we did, over New Year’s). This will affect the ease of starting a fire, how long you may want to spend outside, and the noise when sleeping in a tent. We had a great time, just make sure to come prepared with extra layers and insulation!

Awesome view of valley on hillside! The camp grounds were very clean and well spaced. More than enough amenities for being out in the desert.

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.
