Not far from a main park attraction, the Wonderland of Rocks, Hidden Valley campground provides a good home base for rock climbers.
Hidden Valley campground is open year round and has 44 campsites. Each campsite has a parking pad area (dirt), picnic table, fire ring and grill. The campground does not have water, but you will enjoy the comfort of vault/pit toilets. Hidden Valley campground is first-come, first-serve (no reservations).
Outdoor recreation includes camping, hiking, bouldering, rock climbing, star-gazing, biking, wildlife viewing and exploring the many historic sites throughout Joshua Tree National Park. Be sure to hike the short loop leaving from Barker Dam that takes you to a tiny lake.
