Camp beneath the stars, take in the awe-inspiring mountain views, and listen to the stillness that the California High Desert has to offer. Enjoy the peace and tranquility while cooking on your 36" fire pit grill, then serve your culinary creations on the picnic tables provided, perfect for sharing a meal with friends and family. Each camp site is generously spaced among wild untouched desert plants and shrubs, providing some privacy and separation, without being completely isolated. We are conveniently located just a 4 minute drive from the Sheriff's Office and local Hospital, 8 minutes from the nearest general store for Smores, and 15 minutes from all the modern stores and amenities you may need. We are also just 10 minutes from the historic community of Joshua Tree, where you can eat, drink, shop and explore the local exhibitions, museums and galleries. Most importantly Sunfair Vistas campground is located just 10 minutes from the nearest entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, so if you are up for hiking, bouldering, rock climbing or just a leisurely scenic drive, look no further.

*THE SECURITY CAMERA ON SITE HELPS WITH CHECK IN, AND IS THERE FOR YOUR ADDED SECURITY THANKS :) 

**--AWD ADVISED-- ENTER AT OWNERS DISCRETION IT IS THE DESERT SO THERE IS POSSIBILITY OF GETTING STUCK. I DRIVE ON THE LAND ALL THE TIME IN MY OLD LOADED WORK VAN AND HAVE NEVER HAD AN ISSUE, I PUT IT MOSTLY TO HUMAN ERROR BUT IT IS SOMETHING YOU NEED TO BE AWARE OF THANKS :) 

*** Please note our camp sites are self-check in and automated, however, please don't hesitate to contact us, as we are always happy to help. Also, please keep in mind that as Joshua Tree is located in the high desert, temperatures can get quite hot during the summer off season and quite cold at night in the winter. Also, winds may pick up from time to time, so use the shrubs and your vehicle as a windbreak if it gets a little gusty, which thankfully is usually on and off, if it happens at all.If you are looking for more consistent temperatures, you may wish to plan your visit to Joshua Tree between March and May, or October and November. Otherwise, a little shade, or a nice fire will keep you happy in the off season as you venture in the great outdoors. All that said, we have camped here in various conditions and different seasons and have enjoyed it each time. Just make sure you are prepared by checking the weather and packing accordingly for the season and potential weather conditions. Thanks for taking the time to read about our little getaway campground. My wife and I hope you enjoy your time in Joshua Tree, regardless of where you choose to stay. 

Thanks and best wishes.

The property is exactly what I expected and it was an amazing time to camp in the desert. When we arrived we had the only campsite where the grill grate was broken and unable to use. I called Matthew and he answered right away and helped me to problem solve so that we were able to make our paella! I really appreciated his helpfulness! The camping neighbors we had were lovely, everyone was very friendly and respectful. Would definitely recommend camping here!

We booked Matthew's site for stargazing and it was a really nice alternative since there was nothing available in Joshua Tree national park. If stargazing is your goal, then just be aware that there is still a fair amount of light pollution, being there's still the city a few minutes away but you will definitely get a better view of the stars out here than staying at home.

Matthew's site was easy to find, felt very safe, the camp sites were not incredibly close together. The porta-potty was incredibly clean and literally no smell was evident whatsoever which is what I always worry about.

Overall, I highly recommend this site to anyone.

It was a fantastic stay here! We had so much fun, and it’s really helpful to have a bench at our camp spot, along with a grill for the fire pit! It was very clean as well, which we appreciated! We would definitely come back! Thank you Matthew!(:

Matthew’s camping location is perfect. Off the busy road but very convenient. Clean, well maintained and easy to get to! A great spot to stay privately while enjoying Joshua Tree.

We had a great time! Spacious site, very convenient to Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley, and Morongo Valley. Helpful, clear directions. Excellent for stargazing at night.
