Description

iOverlander cannot verify if wild camping is permitted at this location. It is your responsibility to verify local laws or obtain consent before staying the night.

a peaceful secluded piece of BLM land accessable by 2-WD (keep momentum through sandy sections). an unpaved road that leads to many informal camping spots. at the base of a few hills located within 10 miles of a main road. occasionally can hear cars driving in the distance. this spot looks heavily visited due to a section against the hill scattered with "art" and casings. highly recommend as a camping option when the joshua tree national park is full. it is March 8, 2020 and I arrived in the middle of the night. watched the sunrise made coffee now playing guitar. not a soul in sight. please remember to "leave no trace" we can all do our part.

Quiet Wednesday night, rolled in after sunset. You can go farther down gold park road if u have 4x4. Saw a few cars parked on the way in :) Enjoy!

Report Check-In

Spent one quiet night. The road was sandy and camp sites in the wash are certainly not recommended w/o 4x4. Target practice ended late and started early.

Report Check-In

BE CAREFUL! We pulled off into a wash and got stuck in the sand. Had to get a tow out of there. The tow truck guy told us that he pulled someone out 50ft from us the day before, so just be careful where you park up. We’re driving a 2WD Ford E250. Better if you have 4WD!

Report Check-In

While driving through looking for a spot came across someone in a Ford Transit stuck in the sand in one of the pullouts. It looked okay to drive on, but was obviously deceiving! Be extremely careful out there! Three of us worked to try to get the van out, but she finally had to call for a tow. It was dark by the time her van was pulled out, so we opted to leave and find something else rather than risk the same fate.

Report Check-In

This one might be better for a 4-wheel drive. The road is very sandy, and the pull-offs even more. I got stuck a couple of times. Once, I needed help from a passing traveler to pull me out.

Report Check-In

Beautiful BLM land almost in Joshua Tree National park. It is a dirt road a few miles away from the visitors center coming from Twenty nine palms. Lots of places to camp and it is quiet with a gorgeous view of the stars!! It is a bit sandy, but accessible with 2 wheel drive.

Report Check-In

Went a little further down Gold Park Rd and found a spot that tucked away nice with a campfire rock ring. As previous reviews state, great place to camp in BLM land if Joshua Tree campsites are full
