Comment

Hidden Valley campground is a tenting and small RV campground near the west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.  RV's must be 25' or less to use this campground.  Vault toilets are available.  The campground is set in a bueatiful desert environment where large boulders dot the landscape.   The campground roads are not paved.  Hiking and rock climbing are popular in this area.  Water is not available at the campground.  

IMPORTANT NOTE:  There are no concessions within the park.  Most campgrounds do not have water, ice, or wood available.  Bring everything you need.  There is also no cell service, WiFi, or TV.  With the exception of vault toilets, picnic tables, BBQ's, and fire rings this is dry camping at its best.  All campgrounds in the park do have these four amenities.

Only Black Rock Campground and Cottonwood Campground have water and dump stations.  However, motorhomes are not allowed at Cottonwood Campground.
 
ATV's may not be used anywhere in the park.  
 
Campfires are allowed in campground fire rings only.
 
Potable water is available at the visitor center in Twentynine Palms, at Black Rock and Cottonwood campgrounds, at the entrance station south of Joshua Tree, and at the Indian Cove ranger station.

Overflow Parking is not available in the park. All overnight vehicles must be parked in a designated campsite.
 
It's really not the best park for any kind of bicycling.  The parks primary roads do not have bike lanes and the road surface is to rough for road bikes.  Roads are winding, hilly, and without bike lanes.  In some areas the road has a curbe that forces the road biker to ride in the road.   For mountain bikers, the park offers an extensive network of dirt roads that are less crowded and safer cycling than the paved roads.  Dirt roads are fine but, mountain bikers are usually looking for a bit more.
 
In Joshua Tree just about everything sticks, stings, bites or strikes.  Most of the plants have thorns.  The bees can also be aggressive.  Bring a good pair of tweezers.
