Black Rock Campground is in incredible Joshua Tree National Park and offers amazing views and lots of activity options.

Black Rock Campground is in the northern perimeter of Joshua Tree National Park and is a popular location for hikers, horseback riders, rock climbers, and RV campers. Black Rock Campground is partially shaded with Joshua Trees, and is typically busiest from October through May. Black Rock is one of the only campgrounds in the park that provides potable drinking water. The campground provides bathrooms, picnic tables, grills, and easy parking. 

Keep your eyes peeled for the rare desert tortoise, along with lizards, rattlesnakes, coyotes, and bobcats! Reserve your campsite in advance here.
