Camping at joshua tree national park?
What is the least crowded site at joshua tree? Also, if my group left on a sunday morning for camping and stayed through tuesday or wednesday would it be busy?
This time of year Joshua Tree fills up at every campground on the weekend, weekdays would be less crowded. The best area can be reserved in advance at Indian cove. Hidden Valley and Jumbo rocks fill up first any day of the week because they are closest to the best climbing and sightseeing If you want privacy and can spend the gas driving then right near the southern entrance at cottonwood would be the best. I stay in Joshua tree a lot 2-3 times a year and never have had an issue with party animals, and I always stay at either Indian cove or Hidden Vally. Joshua Tree is very well known internationally it is very likely that your camping neighbor will be a european, greet them and enjoy the company they love meeting folks from Cali.
Is camping better at Angeles Forest or Joshua tree?
i’m going on a 7 day vision quest of water only fasting and meditation in the (semi) wilderness.
I won’t be moving around much, and would like a measure of isolation but have a camp somewhat close for safety.
Angeles Forest is the closest and my original plan, but a friend recommended Joshua tree. seems like cool geography, but also more for climbing (next trip!) than fasting. Any thoughts?
Joshua tree is known for it’s ability to cause an inner peace with the solitude of the desert, and now is the best time to go there. Indian cove is one of the more popular camping sites and it is possible to reserve a site there. In the park at Hidden valley campground, a first come first served campground, there are a few trails leading out from there to what many believe are old native religious sites and many have said to have had interesting experiences there. Go climbing at least some bouldering putting yourself at one with your surroundings opens the mind to what God may want you to hear. In a Christian perspective Christ wandered in the desert for forty days and Joshua Tree is as close to the biblical desert we have around here.

joshua tree CA camping?
hoping to go camping in Jtree this weekend. i have no clue what im supposed to do tho. i hear it gets super crowded and camping is limited. can someone tell me if il be able to get a camp spot or not? hoping to get some good climbing in. i hear you can camp right in front of walls and boulders basically. anyways. just wanted to know what needs to be done and what needs to be heard for one going camping in J Tree. thanks
First come spots at Jumbo rock fill by thursday night, Indian cove and black rock can be reserved 6 months in advance good luck. On the south side of the park open space BLM lands allow dispersed camping but no facilities and sandy soil make for finding good spots difficult. Should be absolutely beautiful this weekend see you there! Leaving wednesday.
