Sheep Pass Group Campground
Sheep Pass Group Campground is near the center of Joshua Tree National Park. It is the only campground in the park dedicated entirely to groups. All sites are tent-only. Sites 1 and 2 can accommodate up to 50 people each, site 3 holds 20, and the other sites have a maximum of 30. A minimum of 7 people is required for any group camp. As in many of the campgrounds in Joshua Tree National park, there is no water. Towering rock formations and the iconic Joshua Trees are found throughout the area.
Nearby is one of the outstanding hikes within the park, the 1.4-mile climb to the summit of 5,461-foot Ryan Mountain. Spectacular views reward those who reach the top. A connector trail leads from the campground to the Ryan Mountain trail. Also nearby is the California Riding and Hiking Trail.
