This Outpost and campground is located on 300 acres of private property surrounded by park and public land. It has been here for over 30 years in some form or another. We are Caleb & Amber who enjoyed managing this little oasis in the middle of the desert from March to June of 2017 when we decided to purchase the business & make it our own. This is a dry, rugged campground with a bathhouse that provides coin operated showers and flush toilets. In addition there is little old rustic camp store placed in the middle of nowhere where we provide fuel, snacks, firewood, ice, showers, cold drinks & more. If you are looking for a more private site with lots of space and shade, book our Small Group at the Rocks. For a warmer stay during the cooler months book one of our Glamping Tents listed. We have the larger, and spacious tent in the grove of the Juniper Trees (which is also amazing in the warmer season) and rent a heater from us inside the general/camp store. BE SURE TO GIVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME TO CHECK IN NO LATER THAN 5PM. THANK YOU!! DON'T FORGET TO TAKE A SCREEN SHOT OF THE DIRECTIONS HERE, YOU WILL LOSE SERVICE ON YOUR WAY.

Beautiful views, peaceful camping!
Amazing experience- we’ll be back for sure! The campsites are beautiful and expertly oriented to maximize the amazing desert views and minimize any disruption (sound or visual) from other campers. There are some strict guidelines around arrival times, use of lights, music (none, ever), but rest assured, these guidelines help to create a peaceful camping experience that can be had to find unless you are at a backcountry or dispersed site. Thank you so much to Amber and team for being such great stewards of this gem.

Thank you Caleb and Amber!
We had a phenomenal time at the Needles Outpost. The site was gorgeous and you could see the Milky Way at night. Our car battery died and Caleb (one of the hosts) immediately got in his truck and jumped our battery! As we visited during the solar eclipse, there were many folks there and Amber and Caleb , hosted a fun outdoor BBQ with a live musician and games. It was a lot of fun! The food was amazing (though I hear this is not a usual occurrence to have the campsite BBQ). Very convenient to get into the park from the outpost. Thank you for a great visit.

Great Location
The location is amazing as it's only 1.5 miles from the Visitor Center inside the national park. The site is simple but comfortable. They have modest restrooms and the outpost has items if needed.
