  • We only drove through but amazed at the vastness of the preserve. There are more Joshua trees here than in the national park. It is amazing to be in an area where you have no cell coverage and can...  more »
  • This desert is surprisingly versatile with a dune, joshua tree fields, old train station and overall desert elements. The roads are not always great so be prepared to spend more time driving at...  more »
  • We only had a couple of hours to explore the Mojave National Preserve. We entered the Mojave National Preserve on Kelbaker Road and first viewed the cinder cones, not knowing that volcanoes erupted.....  more »

  • There's nothing like exploring the desert and camping in the wilderness. I recommend using a vehicle with some good ground clearance but you can make it in a two wheel drive vehicle if you choose your line carefully. Lots to see and explore. Cell phone reception is sketchy at times so be prepared.
  • Iconic and uniquely scenic Southwest American Desert. Just beautiful to visit year round. National Park Service does a great job keeping this area available to the public. Warning: phone reception and GPS can be spotty, always check the weather forecast, be very cautious if you go off the main roads.
  • Beautiful gem in the desert. There is an equestrian center, large cranes and a multitude or birds for bird watchers, an amazing bike/wheelchair/walking path, fishing, camping and several other activities. Great place to enjoy nature and relax with family. Entry is inexpensive also.
  • Breath taking. Its beyond words. If you love the desert. Check it out in spring or fall after a good solid rain. You'll be amazed by the amount of life that was just waiting to be seen
  • It's so beautiful and well kept. I love getting out in nature when it cools off in the evening. I also bring my daughters and I tell them some of the cool things I learn from reading the plaques along the way. From reading them I've learned so much Lancaster history and i can name several of the plants. Did you know our tumble weeds originated in Russia??
