Hidden Valley Campground (HVCG) is the heart and soul of Joshua Tree and conveniently offers a large number of high-quality boulder problems with little to no approach. Some problems are handily located within a campsite, so please ask the occupants for permission before climbing those problems.
Hidden Valley Campground is located 8.9 miles from the west entrance and 1.7 miles from the Cap Rock turnoff. Day use parking is available in the large lot situated along the east side of Intersection Rock as well as within the Campground itself near the bulletin board. Those lucky enough to secure a campsite will be able to access all of the problems in this area without driving.
