Joshua Tree National Park is an amazing natural American wonder. The park is in a unspoiled desert setting with bueatiful Joshua trees and giant bolder fields. The campgrounds are right in the middle of these enormous boulders, some being much larger than a house. It's a perfect spot for relaxing in front of the camp fire.
There are nine total campgrounds in the park. First-come, first-served (FCFS) campgrounds include Belle, Cottonwood, Hidden Valley, Jumbo Rocks, Ryan and White Tank. (Belle, Ryan and White Tank are closed from June through September). Elevation of these campgrounds ranges between 3800 to 4500 feet. In general, the parks campgrounds are designed for campers that are 25' long or smaller. Jumbo Rocks is the exception with a limited number of larger spots. Campbase recommends campers that are 32' or shorter however, that is not a park requirement.
