Comment

Located a quarter mile off the main road, Pinto Basin Road, with easy access.  White Tank Campground can only accommodate RV's smaller than 25 feet or tents.  The campground is in the bueatiful Joshua Tree National Park with enormous boulder surrounding each camp spot.  This is a First come- First served campground with only 15 sites.  Great location for photography.

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.
