BLM land south of Joshua Tree NP

Has anyone parked a big rig (40ft) on BLM land south of the park? We want to visit the park late Feb and were told no camp sites in park for rig bigger than 35 feet. Thanks in advance.

If you have a Toad there is a small R.V. park by the Golf Course on Amboy road that is only about 5 miles from Park. If you stay there make sure you check the electric with a surge protector before hooking up. Very nice 9 hole golf course at location and inexpensive if you like to Golf.

BLM land south of the park entrance sign is big-rig accessible. We have not been there this year, but were there last February. There are two roads parallel to each other running west. The first road , which seems like a lesser road, has more options for pull-outs. The second road, a very short distance north, is graded and has berms along much of its length. I would take the first road going west. You should see RVs there to give you an idea of where to turn.

Just an update: we stayed a week on the BLM land outside the south entrance to JTNP. Due to damage from a major flash flood in fall 2011, the first dirt road (on the left) was very soft sand in spots and not advisable for big rigs. The second dirt road north is in much better shape. this one was repaired with rock and you can travel much further to find just the right spot. Park south of this dirt road as the area just north (before the big berm) is over the underground water pipe to LA and you will be asked to move.
