Good experience overall. Pros: quite, night sky, clean, cheap. Cons: No cell service, none of the sites are level, very tight spaces for trailers/rvs. One emergency phone down by Ranger station. Overall, I think I would just stay on free BLM land 6 miles south that has cell service and level sites. Its more secluded than NP campground and level. Especially with no hook ups at either, free is always better.

Great NP
Love the park, close second to my favorite Big Bend. The sites in Cottonwood are small and barely adequate (possibly inadequate for medium to large set ups). I got a "pull thru" and JUST fit my 30' trailer and pickup. Beautiful campground otherwise.

Tonight - Too Windy
The wind was blowing 35-45 mph at 11pm. We didn’t know if it was going to stop. We decided to leave and hit the Wal-Mart in Coachella. We wish we could have stayed at Joshua Tree. But the clouds covered the stars and we thought our 31ft coach was going to fly away. :-/

Great Spot
Amazing night views despite the approaching full moon. Be sure to hike BEFORE noon and carry lots of water.

Great campground out of the hustle and bustle of the main park, much quieter with awesome night sky’s. It’s at least 20 min to the rest of the park, so plan accordingly

This is the last campground to fill during busy weekends, spring break and holidays. It lacks the Joshua Tree, and Big boulders in the campground like those in the north part of the park. At 3,000', it is the warmest campground along with Indian Cove Campground. Cottonwood is not reservable except for group sites. It has water and a dump station like Black Rock Campground, and this is as fancy as any of the park campground get. It's $20 per night, and self pay at campground entrance by cash. It has the darkest night skies!
