We could not have picked a better campsite during our visit to Joshua Tree. It actually felt like we were inside JT Park with all the massive boulders and the huge patch of Joshua trees on the road leading to the Boulder Gardens.
We camped with our VW Vanagon and there was plenty of space and privacy.
Kyle was a great host! We had a very late arrival, and he was super helpful and communicative.
What a beautiful place. We were literally camping above the clouds--it felt surreal! The property is definitely ideal for tent campers, but we were able to make it work with our camper van by parking near Joanne's home at the top. It wasn't the most secluded spot but the property itself is very private and quiet. Mark, the groundskeeper, welcomed us and he was super friendly and helpful.
The ride up was a bit bumpy, and at times a little scary, but Joanne mades that pretty clear in her listing. The journey was worth it though! Could not have asked for a better weekend. Definitely will be coming back.
If you're looking for a unique camp site for your van, and don't want to travel too far outside the Bay - this is the place for you. We have a VW Vanagon, and the site had tons of space for us to spread out. It was very private, and just a short walking distance from the porta potty. Myrna was a great host. Super friendly and helpful.
