Riverside County, California

based on 1 reviews


Added by Jake Young

Enjoy beautiful desert camping in a Joshua Tree National Park. This campground is the perfect staging area for climbing and exploring with climbing routes within the campground.

The Ryan Campground is but one of many beautiful campgrounds in Joshua Tree National Park. It is located just south of the Hidden Valley use area. There are 31 sites as well as a horse camp. This campground does not have water, but does have pit toilets.

For weekend trips into Joshua Tree, it is often recommended to check this site first because it is not as popular as the other campgrounds. Keep in mind that this most campgrounds, including this one, are first come, first served.
