Description
Indian Cove Campground is located in Joshua Tree National Park in California. Indian Cove is one of the coolest and most unique places to camp in the United States, according to many visitors. The national park is known for its massive rock formations that are steep and huge in size, and these campsites sit right in the middle of it all. Since the park has loads of rock climbing opportunities, this is one of the most popular places to camp for climbers. There are only two campgrounds in this park, so it can become rather crowded, especially during peak season from September to May. 

In the area, you have direct access to some of the neatest places in the country - and in this national park. The large rock formations are generally the main attraction, so you can climb the rocks or just simply enjoy their beauty safely from the ground. There are also numerous hiking trails that you can jump on right from the campground, but just know your dog is not allowed to come hiking with you on the trails and is only allowed in developed areas of the park and campsite. People also love to stargaze at night because the desert is free of light pollution and is clear most of the time. 

The campsites sit on a flat sandy surface and there is no shade in the area since it is in the desert. With 91 campsites, it is large and spacious, but there are no hookups or drinking water provided at the site. However, you will have access to water about two miles away. The sites have campfire rings, picnic tables, and a parking area. You will also find a picnic area, visitor's center, vault toilets, and trash collection at the campground. 

Overall, Indian Cove Campground sits in one of the most unique places in the US and makes for an ideal camping retreat for rock climbers and people who love being around cool nature and rock formations! Although dogs are allowed to camp with you, just remember they are not allowed to explore most nature areas of the park.
