Hi ! Thank you for your interest ! New improved bed <3 This is an ideal place for artists, couples or single / first time campers looking to get out of the city but also want to feel safe and have some basic amenities provided. I want to stress this IS camping, not glamping. This is why the price is low, I am trying my best to provide a beautiful space without costing people 100s- it’s a dream and a vision that is ongoing really 💜🙏There is a small communal area, with shade and tubs to cool off in, a hot bath tub if you bring enough wood to heat it, for now we have the basics and you provide the rest. Bring your sleeping bags , we will have solar lights for you, coffee press , and propane stove in each of the camps, and some cook ware. Hot water depends if you want to heat up some water on the stove/ use the propane shower, which are pretty hot or warm from the sun. Bring your own fire wood to enjoy! This is one step above camping. on a beautiful 5 acre piece of land 15 min from the 29 palms Joshua Tree park entrance. An off grid experience without electricity. loveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveloveyouarelove

Secluded Romatic Oasis w Gr8 Views

4 sites · Lodging10 acres · Joshua Tree, CA
Secluded romantic tranquil peaceful desert get-away. 10 private acres with amazing views in all directions. While our property encompasses 10 acres, 2 rings of 10-acre parcels that surround us are undeveloped desert landscape, so it feels like you are in the middle of 250 acres, not even power lines, nothing obstructs the views. Relax in style in one of our two spacious glamping tents or our budget-friendly all-season cabin tent and enjoy the serenity and peace of nature and the magic desert energy at this green off-grid property. Cook dinner in the outdoor kitchen, or enjoy sunsets with a glass of wine or a beer in comfortable outdoor chairs and sleep in a super comfy airbed on a cloud of soft pillows. Stargazing and exciting adventures await in the nearby vibrant artist town of Joshua Tree and the world-famous Joshua Tree National Park. There is a bathhouse with a solar shower and composting toilet, and we are hooked up to city water, so there is a faucet where you can refill your water jug or the solar shower bag. Other things to note: You can get water at the southeast side of the property. Fires are only allowed if you have plenty of water next to it, and are strictly forbidden per county regulations if there is ANY wind/breeze. If you have your heart set on making a fire on a windy night, we do have a backup option, we have a propane fire ring for rent, please refer to the 'extras' section. Propane fire pits don't fall under the same wind regulations because they don't create embers. There is only one propane fire ring \ available for both sites on a first come basis. Our stoves and heaters use a 1-pound propane bottle (the green one). We do not provide propane bottles, but there are several places in town where you can get them and we do have them for sale. Our check in is on or after 4 pm. Our check out is before 11 am. .

Camping near Joshua Tree with campfires guide

Overview

What do Black Rock, White Tank, Indian Cove, and Jumbo Rocks have in common? They’re all stellar campgrounds beneath the starry night sky in Joshua Tree National Park. (Well, there’s Ryan and Belle campground too, but that didn’t flow as well.)

This magnificent patch of Southern California desert has its main entrance in Twentynine Palms. The 800,000-acre Joshua Tree makes it easy for campers to explore the vast, boulder-laden land. It offers nine campgrounds and nearly 500 sites, all with picnic tables, fire rings, and grills. Half are first-come, first-served, half are reservation only.

If it’s solitude you seek, pitch your tent beneath the massive boulder formations at Belle Campground. With just 18 sites, it’s one of the smaller campgrounds here. Title of smallest goes to White Tank Campground with 15 sites. White Tank puts you next to the 0.5-mile Arch Rock Nature Trail for some easy hiking and wildflower viewing.

Rock climbers hang out at the in-demand, 44-site Hidden Valley campground. Its close proximity to the otherworldly Wonderland of Rocks makes this a difficult campground to score. The 99-site Black Rock campground owes its popularity to the rare presence of running water. If you need flush toilets and some especially dramatic Joshua trees to admire, sleep here.

Summers are brutally hot, and Winters can be freezing here. Prime Joshua Tree camping months are March, April, October, and November. Bring your own water and firewood (and a horse if you’re headed to Black Rock and Ryan Campgrounds.)
