Camp Coyote Acres

· Johnson Valley, San Bernardino, California
10 acres hosted by Michael F.
Our family acquired this 10 acres of rural desert property and decided to move here full time to enjoy everything the Mojave desert has to offer. We have been working to restore structures & the landscape as well as building our homestead. 5 minutes away from the Johnson Valley OHV area. We have a motorcross track on site, good for all ages. All the space we have makes for a quaint and private camping experience suitable for any group of campers.

We had a perfect stay at Camp Coyote! It’s beautiful and easy to find. Our campsite was spacious and far enough from the other campers. We really felt like we had a private spot. The twinkle lights at night were a really cute addition! I will definitely stay here again next time in Joshua Tree.

We stayed at Camp Coyote Acres for the weekend to celebrate my son's birthday and everyone had a great time. Everyone loved the MX track! The kids enjoyed hitting the golf balls and playing around the campground. We also really enjoyed staying somewhere that does something so wonderful as rescuing animals. We hope to be back again!

Been 2x’s and will be back!
Barebones amenity wise compared to larger campsites bc there isn’t running water but very eclectically charming, quiet, spacious and private. The open views are vast and sunsets are beautiful. Unit 1 has its own bonfire pit with swinging grill, electricity, cell service, cement platform with bordering ledge with large picnic table are excellent perks. Attentive host showed my kids their hogs, rooster and other pets. They’re there if you need them but out of sight otherwise. 45 min drive to Joshua Tree Park & 30 min to grocery stores.

Not that close to Joshua Tree
Camp Coyote Acres is situated in the gorgeous Johnson Valley and the host has put together a nice set up for camping. However, be forewarned if you are planning to camp here and you are spending the day exploring Joshua Tree National Park. The site is not really close to the Park. The listing says it's near Joshua Tree but it's at least 45 minutes drive from the main entrance, and over an hour drive from the 29 Palms gate of the Park. We discovered this much to our chagrin as we had spent the day in the Park and had no idea that the camp was this far away. Unfortunately for us, the host doesn't send out any information explaining this well beforehand, and he doesn't even bother to send out any directions on how to get to his place. Camp Coyote Acres doesn't show up on Google, so you would think he would know that and make sure that all people who book are given detailed directions upon booking so they can plan accordingly. Thus, we had no idea that we were leaving the park too late to get there before dark, which soon caused us much stress and consternation. Cel phone connection can be hard to come by in Joshua Tree so we could only get a hold of him after we left the park. His directions were really basic...he told us to go up 247 but there's no signs on the main road saying 247...it was actually called by another name. He said to turn left at Cholla street...there's no street sign for Cholla St. He must surely be aware of this right? Eventually we figured it out, but by this time it was pitch black, freezing cold and windy. Nobody was there to greet us but we eventually got settled. I texted him about using the kitchen he had advertised but never heard back and had no idea where it was or if it was open. I was hoping to get a quick tour of the place, maybe see some of his rescue animals, but he messaged me back only the next day saying he only makes an appearance during business hours. Whatever. I will say the set up is nice with a wooden platform, picnic table and led lights to make the place cozy. We lit a fire in the fire ring, had dinner, set up the tent and slept like a baby while listening to the coyotes howl from the nearby mountains. All good. However, we never saw one rescue animal and nobody ever said hello, thanks, see you again, or whatever. I can tell the hosts have put thought and effort into their camp and I commend them for that. However, they need to make it clear to potential guests that their place is not that near to Joshua Tree, and at the very least, send out detailed directions to their place via email when guests do book. And also tell them that if they come after a certain time, that nobody will be there to greet them or help them out or that the kitchen will be closed. That's how most people do it in the hospitality business.
