The site was awesome, and Philip was very friendly and helpful! The tent camping spot sits in a low lying area, so it's protected from the wind. There are some chairs and tables in the site, which give plenty of space for cooking, eating, etc. You're right next to the Landers Brew Co., which has great beer on tap and lots of friendly locals! The site was still very quiet though, and we all slept great! Only about 20 mins from the Joshua Tree NP entrance, and close to the Pioneer Village and other local attractions. We'll definitely stay here again!
Apparently I am a 70 year-old trapped in a 30 year-old body and have discovered that I love bird watching. If you've had the some discovery, this is the place to go! Our site was fairly secluded, and we woke up to quail and wild turkey about 10 feet from our tent. We could also glimpse the condor perched in a large tree a few hundred feet from our site.
We stayed here in an RV over Thanksgiving. The place was packed with like-minded people who wanted to enjoy the beauty of the park during their Thanksgiving weekend. It was a bit chilling (nights in the low 20s), but a great experience to be sleeping in the canyon with the Virgin River nearby.
Some of the sites are not large (and if you don't have a reservation they'll ask how larger your tent is when you arrive), but this place is definitely worth the stay (and worth the hassle trying to get a spot). The stream that runs through the middle of the campground and the proximity to all of the awesome Sequoia sites make this the perfect campground for the park.
