    I always go to White Tank Campground whenever I visit Joshua Tree NP. White Tank and Belle campground are usually closed from June through September, and there is a fee. $10 per night. This is one of my favorite campground. Quiet, great place for stargazing and easy access to other parts of the park. Always bring more than enough water because you won’t find any place for water in the park.
