When I said there were 8 sites open that was at that moment for that night, the ranger was there and that's what he told me. Now the next night who knows.

The best boondocking is on the southside just outside the park at the Cottonwood entrance off I10. Even better is stay on the same road, cross over I10 into Box Canyon and find a nice cosy place among the rocks
The problem though is its a long drive back to the park attractions. If you come in from Death Valley, go to Barstow and take 247 south. Its a long empty road but used by the locals to avoid the terrible traffic going around. It will take you to Yucca Valley. Once in Yucca, turn east to the small town of Joshua Tree. Stop at the visitors center and talk to the rangers about camping. If inside the park is filled, ask about Indian Cove. Its huge. Also tell them how much time you have and ask about what to see and times of tours etc.

Google maps wants me to go down 127, where we are right now, through Baker and Kelso, then through the middle of the park. Will this be difficult while dragging a fifth wheel? It shows your route as an alternative. Thanks.

On edit, I like the look of your route. Looks like it would be easier.

No and Kelso is a cool little place to visit. Has a restored train depot and a tiny museum but that is all. A lot of ruins. Its nearly a ghost town.
I was going to suggest going that way also but I'm not sure it is shorter and its a lot of empty road drivin
