Sheep Pass Group Campground is centrally located within Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California and is easily accessible to hiking trails and rock climbing routes. It is one of three group campgrounds in the park. Towering rock formations and uniquely-shaped Joshua trees surround the facility. Travelers who enjoy warm, dry winters flock to Joshua Tree from October through May, when temperatures hover in the 70 to 90-degree range during the day and drop to a 40 to 60-degree range at night. Summer is the park’s off-season due to the uncomfortably-high desert heat. Sheep Pass is at an elevation of 4,500 feet and has a mix of both sun and shade. There are no electric, water or sewer hook-ups available at individual campsites; nor is free dump station located nearby. This facility is limited to tent camping only; recreational vehicles and habitable trailers are prohibited. You are responsible for reading the site alerts and booking a site that will accommodate your equipment and size of your group.
