Hidden Juniper Glamping Tent
Poor experience
Really wanted to like this place. It was available last minute. It was nothing like the photos online. There was no wood burning stove, futon, or blankets in the tent, just an old used rug. The host Felipe asked when we would arrive and we said 9:30pm. We messaged him at 9pm when we arrived to see if he could provide blankets like the online photos as there was nothing in the tent. He never responded- either that night or the following morning. If he had responded saying ‘no’ that would’ve been better than nothing. Beautiful scenery otherwise and remote location, however the place is very run down. Very unfortunate, would not recommend.

Thanksgiving Camping trip.
I spent part of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend at this amazing property. The tent and all amenities provided were so thoughtful and made the stay very comfortable. We had a wonderful time sitting around the campfire, cooking and walking around amongst the Joshua Trees. Once we got the fireplace going inside the tent we stayed nice and warm with the 30 deg temps at night, so fall camping was a lot of fun even in cooler temps.

Very peaceful and quiet place. Entry was east, the tent was very comfortable and the port o potty was clean. A little dog seems to run the place, so be on the look out for him - he’s friendly little rascal 🤣

Beautiful spot in a green part of the desert where it slopes up to the mountains. Communication with Felipe was easy before the trip, although once we got there I didn't have reception needed to message through the app when I had a question. (Verizon). All the basics you need are there. The large logs for a great fire were wonderful to have. The extra jug of potable water was a nice touch and there were other thoughtful things for guests too. You should be sure to bring plenty of warm bedding since it gets really cold at night most of the year, even when it's still very hot during the day. Also, if you are going to sleep on one of the cots in the 4 person tent, definitely bring extra pads to help you stay warm and more comfortable. The place feels welcoming, clean, safe, and well taken care of. I recommend it and hope to return!

Beautiful location with the stars. Communication day of was super helpful so I understood what I needed to bring with us. Would definitely recommend - great proximity to LA.

This place was awesome! We came to stargaze and everything was great, the tent was super cute and cozy as well. I recommend for a little getaway not too far from the city!
