The Retreat Juniper Tent/Van sites sit at the base of Green's Mountain nestled among the Junipers and Pinion pines. You will stay just outside the entrance to the City of Rocks National Reserve off the road that connects it to Castle Rocks State Park. Enjoy all the fun of camping under the stars with an amazing secluded location at the entrance to the City of Rocks. Enjoy Rock Climbing, Bouldering, Hiking, Biking, Fishing, and Hot Springs, all within a 5 minute drive! The Park is full all summer but you will have your own quiet base camp 2 minutes away.  Sit around the fire pit at night and gaze at the amazing star filled sky. Sites 8, 9, and 10 are all in the same private forested area and great for groups but still separated for plenty of privacy. Each site has a level tent pad, parking area for a car or van (car/van camping ok), and access to potable water, bathrooms, and garbage. We have now added a 15amp plug to each site to provide power for things like phone and laptop charging, air pump, medical devices, or other basics at no charge. Camper vans, or other vehicles that want to plug in to the power will need to pay an additional $5/day electric fee. No EV charging. Parking is allowed right at camp but no vehicles bigger than a van (20ft), and no trailers. No mosquitos here! PET FRIENDLY! This land has been in our family over 100 years. The Retreat has the closest campsites to the City of Rocks.

Site 9 - Juniper Tent/Van Sites
A Must Stay-You'll love it!
Excellent tent/car camping site. Nice privacy with all the Juniper trees. Nice hosts who provide creative basic amenities such as 20A power outlet, water, toilet, and there's a new shower stall. It's has a limited warm water supply so only 5 minutes but it's enough if your quick and careful. Also, read the directions Ross gives; DON'T trust GPS. Google, etc will take you down several miles of dirt roads because they are technically shorter. However, Ross' directions will take you on a slightly longer route but on paved roads but for the last couple miles. His directions are faster and safer. Ross came by to answer questions and gave me an info sheet of the area resources. (Thanks much, Ross!!) Tracy's has great Italian Sodas and free Wi-Fi. FYI: Absolutely, no cell coverage at the site. Excellent if you're looking to unplug. Highly recommended!

Great spot
Great little spot. The bathrooms were close and Nice and clean. Water pump was close by as well. The awning over the table was a nice touch and great for blocking the sun in the morning. It’s right next to the entrance to the park. I’ve never camped inside the park, but this spot has always been amazing for trips to the city of rocks.

Quiet mountain spot
Beautiful spot in the mountains. Location felt private and safe and well-equipped with pit toilet restroom, picnic table and fire pit. Would definitely stay again!
