    This is a must. It gives beautiful explanation to the whole formation of the stones in the park. Worth having a good car for it. But the views from point 16. Are stunning.  more »

    It was a nice ride. A little hard to find the numbered posts that corresponded to the map. We went later in the day in a 4x4 jeep. I would say this as a word of caution, just because you have AWD does...  more »

Where to stay in Joshua Tree National Park

If you want to spend the night in Joshua Tree National Park, grab a tent and head for one of the numerous campgrounds scattered throughout the park. Some campgrounds feature a reservation system while others operate on a first-come, first-served basis. A couple also provide potable water, but most do not. To sleep on a mattress and pillow with a roof over your head, stay in one of the towns surrounding the park. The towns of Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms offer a number of inns and motels in a tranquil desert setting. West of the park, the options expand into the resort area of Palm Springs. Here you'll find everything from high-end spas and resorts to chain hotels, small inns, and bed and breakfasts. The park is situated about two hours from Los Angeles (if there's no traffic), making a day trip from the city another possibility.
