Shady lava rock spot đź‘Ś

Quiet nobody else around, a lil tricky to find if you don't plug in coordinates. Found a spot a past reviewer had a picture of, in a little cove in the lava rocks which had some nice shade for my pup. There is a 3 on the large lava rock. Suns almost down, clear skies, going to be great spot for…

Quiet and private disbursed sites

Easy to find. A pleasant spot with 360 views of burnt Joshua forest. Low clearance vehicle ok.

An experience that will never be forgotten

The best camping experience I’ve ever had. Sites are nothing more than fire rings and small clearings among the various desert flora that stretch for miles. Perfect for those who want a truly primitive experience. Rock formations litter the hundreds of miles of flat desert providing countless…

  • Rocky terrain.
  • They look so small from this distance.

Quiet desert spot

Pleasantly surprised by the well maintained spots, cleanliness and very quiet. We just stopped for a night while passing through. Easy to find and get to. My son loved all the rocks for his RC crawler.

One of my favs

I love this place so much. It’s far enough from town to have an amazing but close to a gas station if needed.

Not a ton of traffic at night. Sadly this place was victim of the recent fire and a lot of the awesome Joshua trees are black and look dead. I still love it.

Desert solitude

I stayed 1 night (5/7/21) in a roof top tent on my Jeep. I didn’t see anyone else at any of the other sites that I checked out & only had one vehicle drive by in the morning as I was packing up. Very quiet & peaceful, though it was quite windy throughout the night. Lots of burnt Joshua…

Diamond in the Desert

Incredible spot. The coordinates from this page took me right to what I think was the best campsite, although there were several more further up the road. A couple sites have big jumbo rocks, which were great wind protection and perfect to climb up on to watch the sunset. Lots of beautiful joshua…

Desert Quiet

I arrived at night and was quiet with only 2 other campers. There is about 7 spots with fire rings. RV's wont be able to make it in deep. Smaller RV's can get creative around the cross mount. Overall, great spot. I will stop by again. Next time I will get in during the day. It can feel a bit like a…

Well sheltered by lava fields - lots of options along this dirt road

We got a 25ft RV in hear albiet with some pin stripping. about 5 options along the trail nestled into the lava fields that provide some shelter from the wind. Beautiful spot. No facilities but some makeshift fire pits at most of the campsites.

2WD sedan ok as long as you stay on the trails -…

Hidden Gem

Great place for desert boondocking! Very quiet and amazing stars! Joshua Trees all around. Coyotes howling at night. Watch out for cacti which are enormous! A huge fire left a large area of this part of the preserve damaged but there are still some spots where the Joshua Trees are un damaged. It’s…

Wonderful Gem

Stayed here for a couple nights just before the new year. There were many spots with fire rings to camp at when you turn onto the dirt road and a couple at the beginning with picnic tables, but the spots where you really want to be are all the way down the path if your car can make it there. My…

Secluded Star Gazing

Wonderful dispersed free camping in Mojave National Preserve. Find the first road adjacent to the white cross memorial. We arrived after sunset and we reluctant to drive too far down the uneven and non-maintained dirt road, but were rewarded with an outstanding campsite for our risky persistence!…

Beautiful dispersed campground with views and hikes!

A perfect dispersed campsite. We stayed here with our 30 ft RV. The road to the camp sites was a bit bumpy but we managed to park just fine even arriving after dark. It’s not too close to the highway and the road next to the campground is pretty quiet. There were about 5 other vehicles when we…

Lots of Joshuas!

Pretty remote, which factors heavily for me as a female traveling alone. I was happy to see 2 or 3 other cars there. Beautiful views of joshuas and the surrounding landscape. Burn scar in some areas.

There are dispersed sites as far as 2 miles in, and maybe more if I had kept going. Lower…

Beyond Amazing!

We had the absolute best time here, the campground was easy to find and very secluded. We arrived there late as usual, and found a spot just as the sun was finished setting. The dirt road that leads to it is pretty rough, but we made it in our little Camry (2wheel drive) without too many scratches.…
