Nearly the southernmost location of Joshua Tree Natl Park. ~1 hr drive to the main area of the park (north side). A few hikes near Cottonwood Campground.
Nice campground with flush toilets. ATV with ice cream and firewood comes around right before dark. Campsites are a bit crowded for my liking. Access to the Silverwood Lake recreation area is a great benefit. Small market is on site at the recreation area and the beaches are not smooth sand, but are fine to walk on.
Lovely group of drive-up campsites. Accommodates both tent campers and RV campers. Small market on-site with most camping needs. Small Restaurant on site as well. Beach is vIsIbke from many campsites and a short walk to the beach. Amtrak runs near the campsite, but was not a disturbance at night. Winds were high off the ocean during my stay.
