If you want to camp out as close as possible to the campground, then it is the place to do it… In the Juniper Flats area of Southern California, where the San Bernardino Mountains meet the Mojave Desert, the 160-acre homestead property is 35 minutes’ drive outside of Hesperia.

The lithium hot spring pools naturally carved out of the canyon’s cliff rocks sit alongside a cool flowing creek less than two miles from the site.
People have been making camp here for nearly a century so they can take a hike before soaking in the hot springs – stay overnight and you can be first to take a dip when access to the canyon (email hidden)Once you've taken in the spectacular views of mountain and desert landscapes all around, head out to explore the many miles of trails criss-crossing thousands of acres of wildlife-rich land. It's all been managed to maintain the unique mix of plants and animals including the iconic Joshua trees, red-tailed hawks, golden eagles, coyotes and mountain lions.

Sitting 4500 ft up in the mountains of the Mojave Desert, 13 miles from the nearest town and convenience stores, this is a place to escape the everyday. There’s cell phone service on the property, but it drops out along most of the six-mile dirt road that leads here, so check directions before you set off.

Essential facilities available on site include bathrooms, showers, potable water and wifi. Dogs are welcome and there are picnic tables and barbecue/fire rings to use when you’re back at base after a hard day’s exploring.
