This was my Yosemite backup. When you can't get a campsite at Yosemite, you get one at Idyllwild. This campground was really good. I was able to get a really large campsite (Site 93) with plenty of room for our outdoor stuff. The map shows it as a back-in, but I got there and was able to pull through. There are decent hiking trails with trailheads extremely nearby, and the trails allow dogs. We were able to ride our bikes to the local town; we happened to be there for the Easter Egg hunt. The campsites are fairly un-level and they're marked a little haphazardly. There were community water spigots all over the place, but they were frozen for one of the mornings we were there--thawed later that afternoon. Campsites include a fire-ring/grill and a picnic table. Most of the campsites are for tents but there is a section at one end dedicated to RVs. I didn't see any Class A's. The interior roads are a little tight for big rigs. No dump station. Overall it was a quiet weekend getaway that we all really enjoyed and would happily do again. - Arash

My rate was $20 plus a $7 reservation fee. This was a nice cool place to camp out of the heat of the valley below. I wish I could spend more time up here. Do not expect level sites like you would find in an RV park. Many of these sites are designed for tents, but you can get an RV in there. There are two buildings with showers, one at the very front of the campground (near the day use parking lot), and one near the middle of the campground. My campsite was at the very back of the campground, and at my site Verizon service was poor, so your mileage may vary. I would stay here again. - Rick Scholz

Rate reflects Passport America. Most of campground was closed when I was there. I was in a paved level site near the entrance of the campground. I walked campground and some sites towards the end turnaround loop also looked suitable for smaller RVs (I have 25' C). Good Verizon signal. Walking distance to town and restaurants. Mixed forest with pine trees in campground, very pretty. Friendly helpful campground host. - tpild

This park is nice enough. The facilities are getting pretty tired. The biggest problem with this park is the wind. Unless you don't mind wind, look further. There are windmills near this park for a reason. During our stay we encountered wind storms for days on end. Some of the gusts were to 75mph! Like I said, if you don't mind wind. - RV Dog

It is an older park - roads are quite rough. Facilities are nice to use, but being in North Palm Springs, you are in a high wind area and in fact, the wind farm is about 1000 ft from the park. We enjoyed staying there, but it is about a 15 min drive to Palm Springs and nothing really close for shopping or restaurants. We inquired 3 times about buying a lot there and the owners never responded, so assuming they are either not selling or not interested in selling lots. - AMJNMAC1

What a gem in a beautiful part of California. The wind can be bothersome and gusty. However we had more days with no wind or a slight breeze than windy days. We spent 5 months at this park and the rate is the average cost including electric and propane. The only problem I saw was not enough washer and dryers at the park. However this never caused me personally a problem. Park is run by a great group of workers who make sure it is clean and quiet. The average grocery store or gas station is less than 5 to 10 minutes from the park. There are so many great places to eat (local places) in Palm Springs which is 15 to 20 minutes away. This area has all the big box stores and chain restaurants anyone can think of. I enjoyed my lot that faced north where I could enjoy 70 to 80 degree days and look at snow covered mountain peaks. Joshua Tree National Park is 30 to 45 minutes away depending on which entrance you use. - illini777

This is an age 55+ mobile home park that has a few RV spaces available. Call ahead. Office hours are limited. They have a large warm mineral water swimming pool and a few smaller hot water pools. We did not try their WiFi, which their website says that they have. - Ken from San Diego

This is an unusual park because it is combined with a mobile home park where people live permanently. That is actually a good thing. People can ask locals other than a park manager, where good shopping, etc., is. Also, some people leave their rigs here all year (parked in storage) and return by car every year. Most of the RV'ers we saw this winter were from Canada and returned to the area because they loved golf or the local casinos, or just the desert, which was lovely. I also liked that there were walking paths out into the desert behind the park, accessible through the side gate, and the scenery here was real, not landscaped. The park pool is large and the spa big enough for 20 or so people. The clubhouse is nice, too, with a kitchen and room for the nightly card games our group held. It has a pool table and room to read, with books to take out and leave some if you want. A nice, friendly place. Management was not really very friendly, but the people at the park made up for it. It's a short walk to a shopping center with a Vons, K-Mart, and Starbucks, so you don't have to drive everywhere. - dhsbrenda

Access to the park is not so good. The tail of our coach scraped going in (as have many others from the scars left behind). There is a rear access...it is worse. The office was open but no one around. There was not a bell or any means of attracting the attention of the management. Finally, a young man emerged. He was pleasant and informative. He apologized for the poor internet that was available. He suggested that we keep an eye out for coyotes if we were to walk our dog outside of the park. There is no other place to walk them. We did not receive a hard copy receipt. We had a choice of e-mail or text if we wanted a record.
Our site #1 was small and very unlevel but we were able to make it work. Hookups were to the left and in good condition W, P & S but no cable connection. (It is advertised). When asked about cable TV we were told we were welcome to watch the office TV. It has cable. The grounds we neat and tidy. There is only concrete and dirt though and that's okay, it is in the desert. If there was a pool we did not see one nor was one mentioned at check in. The clientele are mostly permanents but their sites were tidy. The internet was non existent. We could not log on and we were right across from the office.
Had we not been on the road all day, we would have asked for our money back and stayed at a Walmart. This is a $20.00 per night park at best. All it has going for it is the power, water and sewer.
Not located in the nicest part of town. We paid $56.74 ($49.99 + $5.75 tax) and we will never be back. - Rollin Ollens

This is a tiny park and with few amenities. Space they had reserved for my trailer was not big enough, although they insisted it was, and we could not stay there. Some spaces looked to be reasonable size; all were back-in; and most looked to be seasonal. The space reserved for us was in front of the admin/laundry/meeting building and our hitch would have stuck out into the lane; and no room for the truck. They charged me 2 nights anyway per their policy. Beware if you make a reservation! From what I saw, the place looked relatively clean. Pool was tiny. - AL Sojourner

Have been staying here once a month for my husband's Dr. Appts. the Asst. Mgr. is the best very friendly and helpful, but the owner's son is hard to deal, he has taken over business and intimidates and makes you very uncomfortable. He has let things go around the grounds. It now has lots of weeds and stickers, showers need a good cleaning, animal droppings not picked up on the grounds, and he doesn't give the discounts advertised. - Cherishedgirls

This aa older park that CalAm is trying to make work for newer and larger rigs. The lots very sub standard. Had to use a lot of blocks because of the lots being so unlevel. Mostly soft sand and not much rock which made the inside of our mh a mess to keep clean. Wind ,wind , and more high wind. Had our slides pulled in a lot of days. If you drive 8 miles to Palm City or Desert Palms, very little wind while it was horrible in Desert Hot Springs. Locals told us this side of the valley is always very windy. Proof being the windmills by the hundreds in the area . Very scary crime area! A lot of older park models. One big thing, streets and lots are very narrow. Watch everyone struggle to back their rigs in. Two people caused damage trying to get in or out. Definitely not a enjoyable place to be in a larger rig. Will not be back. Booked a month here and left early . - Kent and cindy

This is an older park, mostly geared towards snowbirds who come and stay for the winter. It's a mix of park models and RV sites. The farthest loop, which is where they usually put short term guests, has smallish sites with an odd location for the utilities. The water, electric, and sewer are all located at the back of the site, not in the middle of the site. You can put your rig on the right side of the site to line up with the utilities, but then your door opens onto bushes that border each site. The other option is to park your rig on the concrete pad (half on, half off) and run all your lines under your rig. The park is a bit hilly and you may need to drive up on blocks to get level. The park has very nice pickleball courts and bocce ball courts. We had several windy days there, windy enough to bring one of our slides in. - Steve Vogel

Stayed here in 2015 had no problems Came back in 2018 and what a difference. Was taken over by Calam Properties. Had cable before but no cable now. Internet is so slow as to be nonexistent. Relocated some of the amenities we enjoyed before to a neighboring property they own (Pool tables, shuffle board). The roads are narrow so it is difficult backing in if you have a larger rig. Actually "difficult " is an understatement. The customer service is what you would expect from a corporation for example, I went to the golf driving range twice in two weeks to hit golf balls only to find out they had closed an hour early. The second time I asked to talk to the manager. I was told he was not there. This was at 3:00 pm on a Tuesday. There was no attempt on anyone's part to explain why they shut down early. While it is clean this is more due to the people staying here then to the CalAm company. I cannot in all good conscience recommend this park. I for one will not be staying here in the future. There are a lot of parks here and we can do better. - Silverbackalso

I stayed here for 1 month and left ASAP! This is a disgusting place. Fully equipped with corrupt sleazy management and all the white trash, drug trafficking you can handle. Do yourself and others and don't experience this place. - daveer

This campground is just inside the park boundary, but does not have vehicle access to the rest of the park. There are numerous hiking trails and it is close to services in the town of Yucca Valley. The campground is on a slope. There is water available and in the bathrooms. The nature center has some books/gifts available and there is a ranger present. The interior roads are in rough shape but navigable. - Dan C

This campground is just outside Natl. Park and has several trails starting right in the campground. Visitor Center staff is very nice and helpful. No showers, and bathrooms are messy with no soap or a way to dry hands. Just after staff cleans bathrooms, they are fine but seem to be messed up within an hour. Mostly tent campers here, so weekends were noisy til quiet hours at 10 pm. During the week was much quieter. It was uncommonly cold and windy the middle two weeks of February (lows in the 20s at night) so lots of folks cancelled and we had the park pretty much to ourselves during the week. Loved the WiFi at the Visitor Center and the extremely helpful and friendly staff. The park is old with terrible roads and uneven sites. But the Mountain Views and the gorgeous Joshua Trees made up for that. You can stay in this campground for a week, hiking every day and never enter the park, but I recommend that you do enter the park and see the rock formations and other dramatic landscape. It's a national park like no other. - Odysseer

Black Rock campground is on the northwest corner of Joshua Tree National Park. The campground is inside the park, and there are some very nice hiking trails nearby, but to get to the main part of the park, you'll drive about 15 miles east through the town, to get to the actual park entrance. The advantage of being on the edge of the park and next to the town is that cell service is excellent. The disadvantage is that it doesn't feel like "Joshua Tree." You're not in the rocks like at most of the other Joshua Tree campgrounds. The campground itself is okay. Not fancy, no amenities. The interior roads are in terrible shape. A crew was filling potholes the entire time we were there, but I think it was a battle they were not going to win. Our site was fine, but some sites are not level. There is a dump station for an extra $5. - AnnP

This is great little park - out of the way - a really good place to lay low and do lots of nothing. The place changed hands and the promise of renovations and upgrade. Truth be told it does need some work. Some of the roads are really beaten. The spa/pool was nice but the bathroom could use some upgrading. I had a corner site so almost a private parking spot for my truck. Mgmt was great - hard working guy who was very friendly and helpful. Will keep it in mind when going back . - D Ward

A good location to stay a few nights - close to town and also to Palm Springs. No remarkable amenities but they have a club house and a 24-hour hot springs pool. The spaces are a bit cramped and we had to park a ways from our spot. Lots of permanent residents here, too. The staff and neighbors were friendly and helpful. The "pull-through" spot was situated where we could pull IN but not OUT - we had to back out but there was plenty of room for that. A pretty simple place for a base camp which was what we needed. - Mikey Aye

Hard park for me to rate. Many people seem very happy here--not us. Assuming people love the spring-fed pool and hot tub. Both looked too grunge for me to use. We had planned on staying a month--moved to Palm Springs after a week--preferred the new park and the surrounding area by far. Roads through park were paved--paved years ago--pavement also non existent in places. Many junky permanent rigs dominate the park. Manager very friendly and accommodating, but can't make up for the fact that he's trying to operate on a shoestring budget. He needed to trim the hedge next to our rig so we could extend our one slide. The bathrooms and laundry room are old and tired. Located 4 or 5 miles from Desert Hot Springs. Just felt like there was nothing happening here. So glad we left early. - RagTopDay
