Desert Camping Israel is a family run ecological hostel located in the heart of the Judean Desert. We are situated only 15 minutes from Jerusalem, and 30 minutes from the Dead Sea, making our camp a convenient stop for travelers, and the perfect retreat for anyone wishing to explore the Desert.

We're an ecologically friendly camp, with a warm and hospitable atmosphere. We offer travelers a simple and comfortable camping experience, as well as desert tours and outdoor cooking workshops. 


David and Neta, together with the 4 kids (and 2 dogs!) love nothing more than to open their doors to new friends, and connect with travelers from around the world. They started the camp back in 2005, building it from the ground up, as a place for their friends and family to come and relax and enjoy the wilderness.
