Enjoy the silence of the desert on the edge of 5 acres in a vintage Scamp caravan. Experience star gazing under the night sky and be only 8 minutes from the village and less than 15 minutes from the west gate of Joshua Tree National Park

Come gather around the campfire! If you want to camp in the desert, but need basic necessities like water, electric, and wireless internet, this vintage 16' Scamp camper has what you need to simplify your visit to Joshua Tree. You will be able to take a hot shower outdoors under the stars, use an indoor flush toilet and sleep inside, while still feeling very connected to the desert sky. Sit under the shade-sail, watch the sunset and rise, and enjoy a campfire under the stars at night. The Scamp can sleep two people very comfortably and we have fit four snugly. If you want to expand beyond the Scamp, use the 2 person tent and sleeping mat found in the closet

Guest access
SUPPLY: The Camping Cubbyhole is equipped with an electric hot plate, pots and pans, French press and coffee, cups, plates, utensils, dish soap, mini fridge, kitchen sink, AC unit for the summer and an electric space heater for the winters so warm you will want to sleep naked! The couch cushions are used to convert into a king sized bed which are two (2) IKEA twin sized mattresses. We supply towels, bedsheets, and pillow cases (upon request). Outside you will find a Weber grill for outdoor grilling and there is an outdoor table and chairs for preparing/ eating your food while your partner lounges in the hammock ;)!

BRING WITH YOU: charcoal briquets or other cooking fuel, aluminum foil, fire starter, paper towels (we supply toilet paper), flip-flops for the outdoor shower.

Other things to note
**IMPORTANT: IF the weather will be below 32 degrees, (which it can get cold in the HI-DES at night) the water will be disconnected. Please bring water with you. The water can be run through the drains but the main water supply feeding the camper CAN NOT be hooked up. It will freeze the pipes in the camper.

Location

Joshua Tree, California, United States

Joshua Tree is full of artists and musicians, free-thinkers, mixed with Marines from the military base in neighboring 29 Palms and not to forget desert rat characters who grew up in the desert or have been in the desert long enough to add plenty of character to the Joshua Tree mix. It makes for a good variety of personalities! In the village you can find locally owned cafe's, boutiques, thrift stores, plenty of antique stores and art galleries.

The views are amazing on the edge of this 5 acre plot of land. It is only 8 minutes from the village of Joshua Tree and less than 15 minutes from the west entrance gate of Joshua Tree National Park. NO light pollution at night so the stars are incredible at night!

This is a great location, 0.75 mile off the paved road, any car can easily get to. It is only 1.5 miles from Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum, The Integritron and Giant Rock is 13 miles away, 12 minutes to Joshua Tree National Park, Pioneertown and Pappy and Harriets is 20 miles, Joshua Tree Retreat Center 10 miles and the Dhamma Vaddhana S. Cal Vipassana Center is 15 miles away. There is much more to do, just ask and we would love to help you find these places and more.

We are a couple of nomads seeking out new adventures. Coloradans at heart via NYC to the desert of Joshua Tree, a place that can be as unique as NYC in different ways. In love with the desert and the history of the homestead cabins peppering the Joshua Tree landscape, we gratefully acquired ours and are honored to share it with our guests. We are local and LOVE giving tips and suggestions...ask away!
