    Jumbo Rocks


    Jumbo Rocks Campground is located in the Mojave Desert section of Joshua Tree NP at an elevation of 4400'. As you'll see from the pictures, it's amidst a major area of large rocks of all descriptions. The CG is first-come, first-served.


    We arrived late one morning, and plenty of sites to choose from. As we were looking for a site, we passed another Lazy Daze, with Alabama plates. So we decided to take the site in front of it, #41. A few minutes later, the AL folks came back to their rig....it turned out we had met them earlier this year in Florida!

    Date of visit: Mar 2008

    Sites for RV's are generally quite small and are mostly pull-offs along the camp road. It's obvious that this is primarily a tenter's campground.

    Everywhere you look...rocks.

    ...and more rocks.

    This was one of my favorite sites, although not suitable for even a small RV.

    Scattered through the campground are these small vault toilets. No showers.

    This was one of our favorite rock formations in the campground.

    A young girl was learning some rock-climbing techniques.

    A half-mile hike will take you to Skull Rock.
