One mile from Joshua Tree National Park southern entrance. Beautiful desert landscape nestled in by mountains. Private serene and spiritual land. Come get enlightened.Happy to announce a completely private camping experience! Just you and your invited guests/crew. Made this decision based on campers staying by themselves and having outstanding positive feedback. Make all the noise you want while not having to worry about any neighbors.  World class stargazing, no light pollution. Guests have been posting amazing shots, much appreciated. Really incredible how many stars come out. Sandy areas to pitch your tent next to many Jacob Trees (Ocotillos) for natural shade. Also brand new custom shade, look at the pictures! Blocks 80% of the sun's UV rays. There is now a dry outhouse! See the pictures. Bring your own TP and glad trash bags. Please store and take waste with you, no exceptions! Leave it clean for the next guest please. Park at your campsite. Set up next to the fire pit, under the shade. Raw and rugged, surrounded by endless nature. 360° view of mountains. World class hiking, many summits to choose from nearby.  You will have cell phone reception to stay connected. All carriers work.  Truly enjoy the quiet. Only sound out here is the wind. The tranquility is healing. Perfect for soul searching. Get away from civilization. Endless flora and fauna to observe and enjoy. Be aware of the baby flora, can be overlooked and stepped on. Bring your own firewood. 20 acre private property. Surrounded by Orocopia Mountains as backyard and Joshua Tree National Park across the freeway. Southern entrance to the park is the next exit over, 5 miles away from Chiriaco Summit exit. ####################################################### Dirt easement road about 3.5 miles, 15 minutes from gas station to property. 4x4 or AWD vehicles only, Red Canyon Jeep Trail. Please practice safe camping and fire etiquette. Will be navigating you to the campsite from the Chiriaco Summit Chevron by phone. Really flexible about arrival times. Please feel free to ask questions at any time. Part of your stay will go to a family affected by Autism.  Nationalparkstraveler.org/2019/01/day-park-joshua-tree-national-park

Perfectly private. Our family did some little hikes around camp and star gazed.

We had such an amazing time! This property is magical and we are completely in love with this spot. Being out there all on our own with great hills to climb and rocks to explore was exactly what our family needed to unplug and relax. Seriously a slice of heaven. We'll be back and thanks for sharing it with us!!

Beautiful, secluded campsite
Benjamin was very helpful in guiding us to his property, it’s a good distance away from the road but had zero issues with his directions. The campsite was really clean and very peaceful and private. Would definitely visit again

It was exactly what we wanted for a remote campsite. It was a beautiful setting and Benjamin was very helpful with directions and any other questions we had. We only stayed 1 night but would love to bring our whole family out for a longer stay. There is plenty of small dead brush to burn for a campfire, but it burns quickly, and I will bring some of my own larger fire logs for our next visit.

Solitary bliss
Benjamin's property was amazing and very private, so good we didn't ever leave because there was so much to explore around us. I would recommend walking through some of the dry gorges running between the larger hills and mountains. We made fires each night and played our music as loud as we wanted, definitely a great perk being so isolated! Be careful if you hike up any of the taller mountains nearby, the gravel is very loose and we had some scary moments (it looks tame when you're going up!). I also would not recommend driving in with a smaller SUV, we drove in on a Tesla Model Y and it was tough to get in, though not impossible. Would highly recommend and I would come back in a heartbeat!

Went great, no one for miles! It’s prefect to get away from it all for a while.
