Great campsite close to north jtnp!
Our stay at The Watering Hole was enjoyable! The campground is well located, 18 min from the Oasis Visitor Center and 35 min or so to the Joshua Tree city and entrance. It has all the necessary amenities: toilet, shower, water, tables, chairs, and a fireplace. You can even buy wood from Samuel if you didn't bring yours! The place was clean and tidy, and the shower after the whole day of hiking was a fantastic experience :D
Communication with Samuel was very easy, and his directions made it effortless to find the campground.
We would totally recommend this Camping site!
We definitely recommend The Watering Hole! We stayed in site #4 for one night and everything was perfect. The site was very clean with a bathroom, shower, and area to wash dishes. The tent areas are all very spread out, and we didn't hear anyone else all night. The wind guard was very useful! We spent the day exploring J Tree, about 15 mins away (in car), and The Watering Hole was a great place to get some rest afterwards!
We had an excellent stay. Sam and his dogs were very friendly. They only thing that would have made it better is bringing ear plugs. The wind was loud and the coyotes were noisy at times.
Great place with amenities!
The watering hole had cold showers, a station to brush your teeth or wash hands, and a utility sink to wash dishes. Fire pits came with grills to cook. There were lots of tables and chairs to sit and a trash can. Plus corn hole and horse shoes! The porta potty was SO clean. This spot may not be as remote as camping in the park, but the amenities made up for it. It was still pretty quiet and once the fire and s’mores were going we didn’t care. Thanks to our hosts for providing such a great spot!
This was a wonderful site! The host is super nice and was accommodating. The sites are great sizes that come with a picnic table and a big trash can. There is a porta-potty for the sites and it was clean the whole time. The shower is super neat but beware its cold water with high water pressure! Good experience overall.
Basic campsite with good amenities
We enjoyed our two night stay, which included parking, a spot for our tent, a fire pit, a picnic table with one bench, and a trash bin. The shared facilities were a port-a-potty, an outdoor shower (heated only by the sun), an outdoor sink (raised), and an outdoor tub (ground level) with city water. Fire wood was provided ($10 suggested donation). Solar-powered lights indicate the main areas at night.
Not in our host’s control but it was *really* windy at night, which made sleeping challenging, and some of the other guests stayed up later than we did (noise).
