Joshua Tree National Park is a fantastic destination for those interested in Outdoor recreation including hiking, biking, horseback riding, rock climbing, bouldering, star-gazing, flowers and wildlife viewing. There are many historic sites in Joshua Tree National Park.

The campground is at an elevation of 3,800 ft (1,158 m) and camping is located around large boulders and among Joshua Trees, for which the park is named. This is a First-come, first-served campsite with vault toilets and no other service beyond trash removal.

No water so bring plenty of your own. Belle is a great campground to see dark night skies.

Because of the park’s very dry climate, fire danger in Joshua Tree is almost always very high. Be cautious. Campfires are allowed only in designated fire rings or grills that are found in park campgrounds or picnic areas. Keep fires small. Bring your own firewood. You may not gather park vegetation, whether living or dead, to fuel your campfire. If you plan to have a campfire, bring extra water to douse it thoroughly.
