Jumbo Rocks Corridor

JUMBO ROCKS CAMPGROUND has it all: extensive camping area and facilities, quiet spots where you can commune with your inner self, and scenery that bankrupts the vocabulary. You will find clean restrooms, the works. There is even space for large motorhomes, but arrive early and be prepared to pay for multiple sites if you need them.

Best of all, there are good hiking trails within and near the campground rocks—a veritable maze!—with many as easy as pie, others more difficult and lengthy allowing you to just take off through the desert from your camp site. If you find yourself disoriented, simply climb the nearest rise and look around. You will quickly regain your bearings.

This is also one of the best campgrounds for children, who will have the time of their lives scampering over the rocks and playing hide-and-seek in the juniper bush dotted gullies. There are hills to climb, rock climbers to stare at while they perform their gravity-defying acrobatics, and a 1.7 mile Nature Trail that traverses the campground area and crosses Park Boulevard to take in the rolling countryside on the north where Conan’s Corridor and The Wedge dominate the truly jumbo-sized granite formations.

Inspiring Spire

Right in the heart of Joshua Tree National Park’s Jumbo Rocks campground, above Campsite 18, can be found this beautiful rock formation and its companion juniper bush. A conical-shaped granite spire. The perfect spot to enjoy with your family and friends the Golden Hour evening colors. Watch them slowly creep across the campground as the sun sets (the evening colors, not your family and friends).
