Probably the easiest campground to get to in Joshua Tree. It has some really cool sites but most seem to be stacked on top of each other for Joshua Tree. It's close to some really cool hikes like the dam, the mill and the mine. I love Joshua Tree and all it has to offer but this isn't my top choice to stay in Joshua Tree.
I love the campground itself. The whole area is beautiful. Easy escape out of LA. It was pretty much empt during the week. Love that it is first come first serve. sleeping with a completely open tent and viewing the night sky was amazing. Moon lit the entire mountain up.
Cons: Lots of flies. Toilets were unbearable with the amount of flies. Rustic is the way to go.
This is a great place at the beginning of summer when the water levels are high. There is a small creek to camp along and tube down when the river is flowing. It gets very crowded here so get there early. It is first come first serve for tents. RVs can make reservations. Overall I always enjoy myself but can't stand dealing with some of the crowds.
I like this campground. There are some cool hikes to the dunes and to the beach. Go to the wharf near by to pick up some live crab to boil over the fire. Overall a great campground for adults and kids. Go with a group or a romantic getaway. Experience northern California Coast and see where they filmed Hitchcock's "The Birds."
If you live in the Temecula, Murrieta, Lake Elsinore area this is the perfect campground for a quick and easy getaway. They have some beautiful sites and some good hikes. Great place for mountain biking and just an overall fun place. If you are looking for a quick trip into the nature look no further.
I've stayed her many times. There are plenty of campsites to choose from. The biggest problem is now you must reserve you space. It used to be first come first serve and I could alway find a spot. The views are stunning and the hikes bring you from one vista to another. Most sites seem pretty secluded to from your neighbor. I like to get two sites next to each other for total privacy. There is nothing better than the night sky at Jumbo Rocks.
