we stayed at Jumbo Rocks in November. There are not a lot of sites for long rigs but there are some. Our 31 Classic and truck wth a Henslut is 53.5 feet long, bumper to bumper as I had to measure it for a Ferry, and we fit in a great spot. Try to get there in the first part of the week. It fills up by Thursday night for the weekend. An awesome spot to stay!

Congratulations on finding such a spot at Jumbo! Had no idea. Would you mind sharing the campsite #?

Jubbo Rocks site 82

We were on site #82 which was a 'pull off' along the side of the road. A little busy with limited traffic but just a wonderful place to stay.
Go for it!

We stayed at Jumbo Rocks last year with our '28 International. No problem finding a spot to accommodate it. Most sites are "pull-offs", not my preference but it worked out fine.

i know I missed your trip but wanted to comment for future trips. We have a 19 foot International and I highly recommend Belle Campground. It's boon docking and well worth it. It only has 18 sites and most are easy to pull into (see #8). Some don't require backing in. Because its more off the beaten path we didn't see large groups. Mainly couples. Super quiet and the rocks break the wind. Fewer neighbors means more breathing in the sound of the desert -like coyotes. There was a 25+ foot AS also at the site. Also didn't need to back in. We went mid week in mid February and here is the trick to getting a site. Don't worry what the park rangers say, when they say it's full. If starting at the north west end; Start at Black Rock and fill with water, if you haven't already. Go at 11 am. Drive to the site and look for people who are packing up and ask them if you can wait for their spot. Check out time is 12 so if you arrive after that, you might have more difficulty finding the best sites.
Jumbo rocks is very crowded. If you want neighbors, fine. We didn't. Black Rock is OK. Indian Cove is pretty nice and mainly for rock climbers. More space between sites there. we had an amazing 3 days and left via the south route so we could dump at Cottonwood. Easy and we got a change to see the ocotillos in bloom. Cholla garden is amazing when the sun is shining.

Joshua Tree question

We have a spot at Indian Cove, looks like we can get water at the Indian Cove Ranger station, where is the closest place to dump?
Thanks, we'll arrive there 1-17

We've reserved Black Rock Canyon Campground at the end of January and will be there 7 days. We didn't want a chance of not getting a site. The other campsite that has reservations is Indian Cove. Black Rock has a dump station.

We've camped at Black Rock. Very nice. They have both fresh water and a dump station there.

We stayed at Indian Cove. When we go back, we’ll stay there again. Most sites are secluded and well maintained and I liked being able to make a reservation. The other campgrounds looked nice as well, you probably won’t go wrong wherever you camp! Mike

Good to read your recommendation. Coincidently, last year we made reservations at Indian Cove twice, once at site 21 and then again at site 22, and ultimately ended up having to cancel both times. We chose the sites because the pics on the booking web site looked nice but we haven't actually visited yet. Anyway, we've now booked again for 2/25-28 at site 21. Going to make it this time!

I've stayed at Jumbo with my pop up, having travelled so far at spring break was nervous about getting a spot, so booked a campsite at the camp ground on the outskirts just in case. We were in the park by 9:00am and found a killer site, one of the happiest of my camping trips when my kids were little. I'd get in as early as possible and look for signs of people packing up to leave. Can't imagine all that tough in Jan.

Joshua Tree advice

[ATTACH]305836 Greater Los Angeles Airstream Club camped at Jumbo Rocks in January. Rigs from 19’ Bambi to 30’ Classic were accommodated. The key is to go mid-week and arrive early. We heard from a ranger that Joshua Tree NP will be on reservamerica, possibly it already is. Of course, that means planning 6 months in advance. Would love to know what sites people had, and their AS length. I’ll start: our 25’ fit nicely into site #43.
