It's the desert but nice enough if you want to be in the area. It is way off the highway so very quiet. The sites are sand with some bushes in between and a couple of trees here and there. The little fishing lake is cute - we didn't fish. You can occasionally get a cell phone signal (Verizon) and texting worked sporadically. They have a WiFi provider that you have to pay for, but it didn't work very well - very slow and even sporadic. It was through MoJo Hotspot. They must know that it doesn't always work because they are very quick to give you a refund - no questions asked.

Restrooms are good and clean. Showers good and clean and free. Only one dump so if you are leaving when everyone else is - there will be a line. There is a large tent camping area that fills up on the weekends. There didn't seem to be anyone going around to check on things but we didn't have any problems.

We were able to get a good satellite signal - it is the desert after all.

If you are going to be in this area - it is the best private option. We did not check out the RV sites in Joshua Tree National Park - but that would be dry camping.

Some sites have fire rings and some even have a picnic table. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Must see Joshua Tree National Park.

Nice place to stay overnight or longer. They have a private fishing lake with no license needed. Sites are sand with bushes planted between sites. Looks as if was an older RV park but renovated lately. Very nice host. Recommend and will stay in the future. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an OK park. It's the desert so don't expect a "resort". Located 5 miles off the highway it is very quiet here. No cell service but they seem to have a very good wi-fi system. All sites are sandy and not very level so bring lots of leveling blocks. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Joshua Tree National Park is the attraction here and a "must see"..

Escapee rate. Good enough park. It's sandy and it's the desert. I can see where it would kick up with the wind but fortunately we didn't have any during our stay. Nice wide sites, ours was level. Supplied utilities just fine. Easily accessible dump site. Very marginal cell service and certainly no data service. Had I been staying longer I think my trucker antenna/amplifier would have taken care of it. Good WiFi signal at our site. The charge to users is OK with me if it keeps the price for sites from going up to get everyone to cover the cost. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Unfortunately we could only stay for one night before we had to leave for another RV park in the area because a group event had completely booked this park. We have stayed here earlier and will return in the future. The park is a few miles off the busy highway, so noise is not an issue at night. During the day some shooting and ATV noise is going on. The sites are sand, pretty large, and easy to get in and out. Our rate was for a pull through full hookup including an escapee member discount. Leveling was easy, the hookups were in good order, and perfectly placed. Sites are arranged parallel and some oleanders give a little privacy. We cannot comment on the restrooms or showers since we did not use them. However, value for money is very good and the lack of Wi-Fi is bearable for a few days. Shopping and Wi-Fi is about 8 miles away. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is an open sand flat with minimal vegetation between sites. Lots of grit in the air when windy. The site was not level front to back. Electric OK, water pressure was low (22 psi), no sewer, no cell service. Very good wifi - fast and stable - but not included in the camping fees ($14.95/week extra). Biggest positive to this campground is that it provides convenient access to the north side of Joshua Tree National Park. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very reasonably priced -- our rate was the weekly rate. Nice campground and nice owners who obviously care about their facility. The place was very, very clean. It was quiet and the small lake was a real surprise in the desert. There were two sets of bathrooms and showers. There was a large sink if you wanted to wash dishes. We went in March and it was not crowded at all. Be careful not to park behind big rigs if you want Wi-Fi since they can block the signal. We are small and this happened to us. Also, there was no cell reception. It really is off the beaten path, but not that far to drive into town. The only real downside was the lack of sewer hookups, although the dump station was pretty close. Had the sites had the sewer included, I would have rated this park a 9. Yes, we would happily stay there again. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are clean and very good (just a little bit not level but OK, this is the case with a lot of campgrounds), campground well lit and the sites are thus easy to find in the dark. Indeed close to Joshua Tree Park. We experienced a fantastic sunset and sunrise. No sewer on site but we dumped at a central spot on the campground (included in the price).

There are two RV parks in town, and we suggest choosing this one. It's a cool place and we recommend it. There is some groovy permaculture stuff going on in and around the place, and the owner is cool. If there is a party going on, beware of the bathrooms. Other than that, this is the place you want to stay in Joshua Tree. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This reflects a weekly rate. This is a very nice park 4 miles from the Joshua Tree NP entrance. It is the typical desert park with a sandy surface. There are some trees between a lot of the sites but not much for shade. Views of the surrounding area are great. The small lake (us easterners would call it a 'pond') is very nice with lots of birds, ducks and fishing available for a fee. The sites are terraced so a pull through has a small hump to go over. They have fire pits and firewood (a little expensive) for sale. The Wi-Fi was accessible, but a little weak the further you get from the office area. We camped at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
