We planned a short stay here to visit Joshua Tree National Park - figured it should be a good deal being a military campground. Biggest issue is there is no on-site camp host - registration is done at the lodging office. Staff seems indifferent about the campers concerns or the upkeep of the campground. We came in at sundown and were given a site which wouldn't accommodate us. Had to call back and forth with the office in trying to get a decent site - it took over an hour to finally get the site. On the second day got a phone call at dusk and told we had to move because the electrical at our site didn't meet the fire marshal's standards. Went through a repeat of the previous night in that it took us three spots to finally find a suitable one. Staff just doesn't seem to know what they are doing with regards to taking care of the campground. Several of the empty sites weren't usable because of not being up to electrical codes. Very frustrating. Also, as mentioned there are no on-site facilities. I would not recommend this place, even though it's fairly inexpensive. We camped at Twilight Dunes (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

This military RV Park was once a trailer park that was unsuccessful, so they turned it into a RV Park and it seems to be doing well. Each site has a covered carport and a storage shed. The entire park is dirt. The curbs don't have a grade so getting an RV in place and leaving is very abrupt. There is no camp host, so people don't follow the rules - dogs off leash, campfires, even people coming in for the night and leaving the next morning without paying. Check-in is at the lodging office. To get to the RV Park, there is a new dirt road just before housing so you don't have to drive through housing; however, at the time we were here, there was no sign. The only nearby road is the road to the main gate, but there is an unusually high amount of traffic and it is disruptive. It appears as though they are about to construct houses immediately behind the RV Park. Decent place to stay for a few days to see Joshua Tree National Park. We camped at Twilight Dunes (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

As stated in previous reviews, good for visiting Joshua Tree NP. No amenities at all, inconvenient from park office to RV sites and not clearly stated where to park for the office. Very sandy and dusty and glad we missed some of the dust storms we were told were horrific when they occurred. Oddly set up, all the "amenities" like shed, cement stand and quasi-garage were located on the driver's side vs where one would actually use them. Don't imagine we'd ever want to stay here again - regardless of the nice commissary and new PX/NEX and gyms on base. We camped at Twilight Dunes (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This military park is convenient to Joshua Tree National Park and about 60 mi NE of Palm Springs. Good commissary, PX, service station with diesel (fuel was $0.20 cheaper / gallon in Indio). This is a bare park with few facilities. No rest rooms, showers, laundry (one could shower in the gym). Sites are sandy and would be problematic during rains. Noise from main road into base is bothersome. Most sites are occupied by long-term campers. It's a good place to hang your hat while at nearby National Park. It appears that efforts are underway to improve the park, e.g., with satellite TV and the staff went out of their way to be accommodating, possibly to make up for past deficiencies notes in reviews on other web sites. We camped at Twilight Dunes (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.
