Need Joshua Tree SP campground recommendation
#1
I'm planning to camp at Joshua Tree and saw that they have about 6 different campgrounds. I don't need electric or water so I was wondering if anyone has been there and which campground has the most big rocks.

Here is a guide: https://www.timeout.com/los-angeles/trav...ping-guide

Map of Park: https://www.nps.gov/jotr/planyourvisit/u...otrmap.pdf On the map, locate Skull Rock indicator, there is camping next to it.

Best days are Monday - Thursday (less busy starting on Tuesday), arrive early versus at noon.

All the campgrounds are darned nice, but Hidden Valley and Indian Cove would fit the bill.  They are either $15 or $20/night.

We prefer dispersed camping and there is BLM land at both the north and south ends of the park.  And I found a map!

Enjoy.  JT is such a beautiful place....

Jumbo Rocks has the most big rocks but also the most people with huge rigs.

Belle and White Tank also have rocks. There are size restrictions that keep out the 40' fifth-wheels and monster Class A's but there are fewer campsites.

Hidden Valley is a popular rock climbing spot. It's hard to get a space there.

The general challenge at Joshua Tree is finding ANY available campsite, especially in spring and fall.

If you can't find a campsite in the park, head over to Freecampsites.net and get the directions to ones that are just outside the park, both south and north. I liked the south end better!

I drove through the park the end of March and there wasn't a site to be had. Wonderful place and I'd like to spend some more time there but it will probably be commuting from the BLM land outside the park.
Worry is a misuse of imagination!

There's also overnight parking at the Tortoise Rock Casino on the edge of Twentynine Palms, at Adobe and Baseline.

The LOW for the next ten days is 76 degrees...it will be at or over 100 for the foreseeable future.  Horrible time to go.
