It was very quiet. Easy to find. Close to Jtree entrance. Outdoor bathroom was a bit rough but we had RV so never needed it. Thanks!

We enjoyed staying at Palm Ranch. Beautiful desert views all around. Felt very private, especially compared to a campground.

Palm's Ranch is a quiet, clean, spacious and calming place. It is 30 minutes away from Joshua Tree and very close to the town if you forget something. But you can’t hear the noise from the city on the property. The whole place made us feel at ease. Lisa was very nice and responded quickly to any questions we had. The place has a fire pit and chairs. We had a big group(9P and 2dogs) so we brought our own tables and benches. The property had enough room for our four 4P tents and canopy sitting area. The bathroom was clean, but you do have to bring your own toilet paper. The directions Lisa.gives you is very easy to follow. Do not follow the directions from Google maps or it will lead you to a road that can only be accessible with a 4x4 SUV. With that being said, I would definitely come again to relax and enjoy the desert.

Loved camping here with my friends! Make sure to follow the directions listed and not take the GPS as it will take you down a 4x4 trail lol. Tons of yucca/Joshua trees in the area which make for beautiful scenery especially at sunset. Other campers are in the distance but nowhere close enough to be seen/heard. Stars are beautiful out there! There is a small compost toilet and it's close enough to town incase you forget anything. Would definitely recommend this spot for a place to camp beneath the stars!

I loved van camping on Lisa’s property. Complementary wood for two fires was a really nice touch! Would come back again!

Stayed in a pop up camper with a few friends and Lisa was super helpful with finding the site. Bathroom is quaint in a blanket made hut not far from the site and a spicket and hose water was not far after that. Could see other campers/sites from a fair distance and it was very nice and quiet. Beautiful campsite especially during sunrise/sunset.

Beautiful land and it feels like you’re really in nature, but it’s also close to town. A lovely fire pit makes it the perfect spot for tent camping.

Great simple campsite! Very clean and chill. Still in town but feels secluded at night. Good directions too. Lisa is very nice and easy to communicate with!
