We are an operational dirt runway airport located on 78 acres of flat desert land in 29 Palms. Occasionally there are visitors that land for a quick stop, those that may be practicing take offs and landings and then those who like to just buzz on by to their destinations.  We also have tie downs for those who would like to fly in and camp.  Let us know in advance and we can supply additional information to accommodate your stay.  Located on the property is an airplane hangar and a dilapidated historical military building that was brought in by a previous owner.  The desert is filled with adventure seekers so expect occasional dirt bike riding and offroad vehicle action.   Being just east of 29 Palms means there is plenty of surrounding desert for walks, dirt bike riding and when the sun sets the best show begins. The night skies and the star show is one you won't soon forget. We are located minutes away from the east entrance of the Joshua Tree National Park.

Great option in case you show up to Joshua Tree and all of the overnight camping is full! New pergola and picnic table along with a fire pit and barbecue. Extremely easy to find and each camping site is numbered clearly. Neat spot next to a small engine dirt runway, we didn't experience a plane landing or taking off during our stay. Would recommend!

This was my first camp site in a while and it was amazing! Great sunrise and close to an entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

The covered picnic table was unexpected and provided much needed shade. We loved the solitude and quiet of the desert setting and enjoyed both a desert sunset and sunrise. Location was also very close to 29 Palms for supplies, food and entertainment at a casino.

Solitude and shade in the desert.

If you're looking for wide sweeping views of the valley, you found the right place! Sites were clean and tidy, and the shade is a premium luxury out here. Outhouses were spotless, cleanest I've seen. All 5 sites are well distanced apart, which gives a sense of a bit of privacy if you're over the crowded campgrounds in the park. Having a charcoal bbq and firepit ready to go was awesome, and a tether ball and horseshoe pit to get that last bit of energy out in the cool of the evening. The distance to town feels remote enough to be able to disconnect but close enough to be convenient, and only a few minutes from the park entrance. Had full cell phone service as well, which you don't have in the park so you can plan out your next adventure once back at camp. Claire was also an astounding camp host and answered all my questions right away and was more than gracious. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!! Don't hesitate to book here for your next Joshua Tree adventure!

Thank you for choosing to come to our little piece of the desert. Our idea is to keep it simple so that the natural beauty of the desert gets to do its thing. The peace from the desert, endless miles of unobstructed views all leading to the amazing sunrises and spectacular sunsets! I appreciate your beautiful photos!! We hope you make it back to our small community again soon!

This is a great spot if you want to visit Joshua Tree National Park, but you don’t want the hassle of searching for a space in the crowded Joshua government campgrounds. My experience with campgrounds in the park is that they are very noisy at night and not suitable for kids (large groups staying up all night drinking and swearing and throwing fireworks in their fires, for example).

In contrast, we took our Scout group to Claire’s campground and had a wonderful experience. There was plenty of space to spread out, firewood ready for us in the fire pits, and the kids played with the tether ball and horseshoes. We had an easy drive each day into the park.

Claire was a great host who responded immediately to questions and helped us out upon our arrival.

Plus - there is a runway on site - how cool is that?

Went to Joshua Tree last minute and couldn’t find any reservations in the park but this place was exactly what we needed. It had all the amenities we needed and very clean.

Great location for stargazing and getting away from the city. The fire pit was ready and the camp site was easy to access.
