The Joshua Tree Crash Pad

· Joshua Tree, California
10 acres hosted by Jess L.
We have several sites and are located just three miles from the town of Joshua Tree and a half mile from the back country entrance of Joshua Tree National Park. Our property features beautiful views of the park and snow capped mountains (until early summer). We are on a safe and private road with a coded gate. We have 7 campsites for tent and car/van camping, with potable water and port-o-potties. We are on 10 acres, 5 of them are developed. We have a garden and swings, lots of area to walk and run and access to hiking and scrambling at the end of our road.

Very clean and well-maintained. We went to see the Perseid meteor shower. Some light pollution near the horizon but the stars were otherwise visible and we saw many shooting stars. Could hear and see the highway. Couldn't see the Milky Way. Lots of stars though. Helpful hosts.

Jess is a great host and knows the area well. She was so helpful with suggestions of where to go and things to do while in the park or town. The property is gorgeous and has everything you need, plus amazing views. Desert camping at its finest.

This was a wonderful start to our road trip! The site is quiet and peaceful, with amazing sunsets. The toilets were fine and the hot showers were fantastic after a long day walking. We saw Jessica and her husband around but as everything was perfect we had no need to bother them 🙂. Location is great, 20 mins or so to JT NP and less to the town.

We loved our stay. The property views are awesome, the showers were clean and had hot water! A definite treat after hiking all day. The property is situated conveniently between both gates of Joshua tree national Park. I would definitely recommend a stay with Jessica.

Perfect JT crash pad
Thank you Jess for a perfect pit stop! We just needed a crash pad for a few hours. She accommodated us arriving in the wee hours of the morning, gave super clear directions to get to the camp sites, and the facilities were nice and clean! The outdoor shower set up was perfect and just what we were looking for to clean up before getting back on the road.
