Early spring in the deserts of Southern California create a wonderful time to explore Joshua Tree National Park. We have reserved sites on a loop nestled among the towering and enchanting rock formations of Jumbo Rocks. Our campsite is centrally located within the park so we'll have easy access to miles of hiking and biking trails. We'll be surrounded by large Joshua trees and some of the most bizarre and unusual rock formations in the southwestern states. You'll be amazed by all the cacti, pine trees, succulents and grasses that carpet the desert floor. We may even experience the desert in bloom.  

On Thursday night, Great Outdoors will provide a variety of weenies & sausages for the meet-n-greet. Dress them up with chili and your traditional favorites. On Friday night, we'll have our traditional pot luck.  

The cost of this 4 day weekend of adventure in one of our most spectacular desert landscapes is just $40.00 for the first person in a tent, and $20 for the second. We can accommodate 3 RV’s/trailers. (3 sites, 29ft, 30ft, 36ft). When registering, choose the smallest size that will fit your setup. The cost is $70 for the first person, and $20 for the second.
