Joshua Tree National Park’s Black Rock Canyon Campground has 100 campsites for tents, trailers and RVs set among the hauntingly beautiful Joshua Trees of the high-desert. What’s really different about this campground (compared to other Joshua Tree National Park campgrounds) is that it has drinking water and flush toilets.

Horse owners choose Black Rock because of the horse camp and the California Hiking and Riding Trail that stretches across the park to the north entrance. Others like it for the park’s namesake trees that crop up around the 100 campsites. Reservations accepted, open year round.

Outdoor recreation include camping, hiking, biking, rock climbing, bouldering, star-gazing, wildlife viewing and exploring many of the historic sites in Joshua Tree National Park.

Other Joshua Tree National Park campgrounds to consider include Belle, Jumbo Rocks, Indian Cove, Hidden Valley, Ryan, White Tank, and Cottonwood.

    We had a good experience here despite the fact that it is just 5 miles outside of Yucca Valley. We tented in site #70 and it looked just like your photo. Nicely situated near the water spigot, the bathrooms and just far enough from the visitor center. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. We saw Roadrunners, rabbits, horned toads, birds, bats and chipmunks. No snakes. At night we heard coyotes sing. There were gorgeous sunsets and millions of stars at night. We hiked the High View Nature Trail, an easy to moderate hike depending on your knees. We saw different kinds of desert flowers and majestic Joshua Trees. The panoramic views at the top, especially of snow-capped Mt. Gorgonio, is awesome. The trail was in good shape but could use an upgrade for the markers pointing out the plants. The stone stairs were helpful and there were some beat up benches to rest on. The Visitor Center was good. It’s important to know that there are no portable showers allowed here. Also, it is forbidden to tie anything around a Joshua tree! The Rangers are very committed to this rule. Also, check the weather. We stayed for three days. The first two were calm and peaceful, the third day the wind picked up and was so gusty by late afternoon that we feared our tent and canopy might blow away. They didn’t and we were fine but if you don’t stake out and guideline your stuff you will be chasing it down.
