I loved my stay at Valerie’s. Not only does she have a wealth of knowledge about the area and the best dogs, she surprised us with whiskey at sundown and coffee at sunrise. What a unique and inviting experience that only Hipcamp could offer. 24 hours at Valerie’s is a day in desert paradise, truly (even outdoor showers!). Thank you Valerie- it was an unforgettable trip. I know I’ll be back if I’m ever in LA and have a couple days off.

Myself and 2 friends stayed here in April. I've been to a lot of camps, and this may have been my favorite.
Everything is a little funky, Val is hilarious, there were adorable friendly animals everywhere, my new favorite restaurant is right around the corner, open clear skies at night, you're 20 minutes away from Joshua tree, and she even has a shower and places to sit. What more could I ask for?
