Tent camp on 5 scenic acres on the top of the Mesa at Pipe's Canyon. Wide open desert to the East, one of the best views of the mountains that shape Pipe's Canyon all the way to Big Bear, to the West. Abundant Joshua Trees, wildlife, 360 degrees of stars and coyote serenades nightly.  There are 3 well spaced campsites on the property which is in a rural neighborhood with a few scattered houses in the area.  Feels far out into the wide open desert, but is only 10 minutes from town.  Nearby attractions: La Copine in Flamingo Heights, the Integretron in Landers and Pappy & Harriets in Pioneertown are all close by... it's a 20 minute drive to the Park Ranger station entrance of Joshua Tree National Park.

Great spot for an overnighter

Deidre was very friendly, and getting to her property / the sites on the property was easy! The flush toilet and sink made the experience super pleasant for those who are less accustomed to wilderness camping. Despite being nestled in between several other properties, we felt nice and isolated under the stars. We used this as an overnighter to get to a show at Pappy + Harriet's, and it was perfect - not too far, not too close. I think I will make this a regular stop!

We had a most relaxing , serene time as we tried to see the perseid meteor shower. a little clouds but still quiet and wonderful. A nice respite from our city life in Long Beach. And the temperature at night was much better than we anticipated - actually was cool. Deidre was very accommodating and helpful and we would stay there again

Beautiful location which was very close to the park entrance. The NICEST outhouse I've ever seen and Deidre was wonderful helping us navigate to the spot.

The campground is very nice and convenient to visit Joshua Tree. Unfortunately, it was extremely windy when we were there, so it was hard to sleep in the tent.

Awesome spot! Really clean, nice outhouse with running water, and super close to Joshua Tree. Deirdre was super nice when we chatted on the phone- we arrived after sunset, so it was a little bit of a challenge to find the spot. Overall great experience.

Response from Deidre, the Host, on April 7th, 2021

Thanks, Matthew! It's definitely much easier to find/set-up camp in the daylight. We are in a designated "night sky viewing" area up here on the Mesa which makes the stars amazing, but also more challenging to find the site after dark. Look forward to having you back out soon!

This site is AMAZING!
Each site is equipped with a table, chairs, and fire pit.

The bathroom is also amazing with a flush toilet and sink.
Definitely worth a stay if you want to visit J Tree!

We had such a great time at Deidre's place. Two roomy tent spots with plenty of space for our travel trailers, one in each spot.. (Ours are smaller trailers, I would message her to double check if your rig will fit.) No hookups on these spots, but she has a separate listing with electric to check out if you needed it. Some dirt roads to come down off the main street, but hard packed, not sandy. We just took it slow with the trailers. Nice view of the nearby hills and big open sky for stargazing. It was an easy drive into JT national park to take some photos at sunrise at the Cholla Cactus Garden. The little outhouse bathroom is perfect, clean and cute, with a flush toilet and sink. We will definitely come back here!

Great camping spot that's close to Joshua Tree! Deidre was very communicative and arrival was easy even though we arrived after dark. The bathroom was clean and well cared for. We'll definitely be back!
