This is a perfect little spot just a few min from JT park entrance. Not very quite as it is in the middle of the town of Joshua Tree, but it is close to food and shopping. The host was very nice and helpful. Overall we had a great stay and had a hard time leaving.

We arrived there after 8 pm, but the host welcomed us with his big smile. It's got a cool bar, clean bathroom, and wifi service. We didn't get a chance to go to a bar this time, but we will definitely go next time. Highly recommend!

Not the most scenic campsite but you can’t beat it for proximity to the park! Nathan saved our tent from blowing into the fence on a windy day and definitely saved the whole trip because of it. 10/10 great people hosting who are happy to help with whatever you need.

Great experience! Nearly right across the street from a Joshua Tree visitor center. Great amenities, clean bathrooms, plus an attached bar! And wifi which was unexpected!

The campsite is cool and only a few people there. In the town and near the national park, we feel very safe. Although I arrived late, the restroom need password but I did not get that information advanced. And I called the host and he did not answer it. I also called the host on next morning but still nobody there.
