The space
Looking for a unique camping experience away from the crowds of Joshua Tree National Park? Dirtbag Campground is for you! We provide facilities for glamorous camping (glamping!) comfortably and safely on public land. We now also provide a mister and a quiet-generator powered air conditioner! Visit Joshua Tree in the summer to avoid the crowds! Our X site is typically located at least 20 to 100 yards away from other camping neighbors.

Our X site provides you with a fully set up Yurt tent and camp site. Have you own little world in nature!

Our X site includes: a fully set up yurt tent with a queen bed air mattress, a quiet generator, an air conditioner, a mister and fan, ground rolls, clean sheets, pillows and blankets, side tables, battery powered twinkle lights, flame-less candles, a battery powered tent light, flashlights, a personal propane grill, a propane fire pit grill, cooking and eating gear, a cooler with cold packs, a full 20lb tank of propane, a Bluetooth portable speaker, a picnic table, 2 folding chairs, a full water jug for cooling off or washing in a provided basin filled daily as required, and access to a shared porta-potty with a sink, cleaned daily. 2 People Per yurt. You may have up to 6 people in your X site however it is necessary that you pay an additional $25 per night per person with extra ground rolls and sleeping bags provided. An additional 2-person tent is also available for groups larger than two. Larger parties are welcome - just please drop us a line prior to booking. Please, no more than 6 people may camp in one X site without prior arrangement. We have this limitation so that our facilities do not get overused in the course of an evening. Included in your X site is a common area with: an additional water basin for washing, a full-size propane BBQ grill, an additional lantern, a large propane fire pit, a table and chairs, yard games - frisbee, boccie ball and corn-hole, and a seasonal shade area. The common area can be a great way to meet new people, particularly on busy weekends and holidays!

We named our camping rental service Dirtbag Campground because the term dirtbag has come to mean people leading simple lives closely connected to nature, often connected to climbing or other dirt sports. Pets are welcome for no additional fee - just please be sure to let us know before hand! If you have any questions, please let us know! We are available 24/7 while guests are on site.

Other things to note
Weather in the desert can be a real hazard. When it is hot please expect to need 2 gallons of water per person per day minimum if you plan on moving at all, it is recommended to consume a gallon per day per person if you are sedentary in that kind of heat. Daytime temps in the summer climb over the 110 degree mark. In the winter it can be quite cold at night, sometimes freezing for a week at a time. Winter storms and Summer monsoons are also something to consider when planning to travel to the high desert. Flash flooding can get you stranded and the wet desert floor can be difficult to camp on. The National Weather Service is our weather resource, you may use this to gauge your camping weather.
