  • The park has a wide variety of things to see including rock formations and the unique Joshua tree. Great place to see stars at night when the skies are clear
  • Very nice visitors center, Rangers were helpful. Nice spot to picnic with shade.
  • Summary based on several visits: --water point and clean toilets --helpful advice, as at many parks --labeled plants helpful in identifying when seen in the wild --great starting point for Oasis of Mara walk on paved "trail" --better store than many parks with some unique, low cost items Highly recommended.
  • Very informative and enthusiastic staff. Large variety of memorabilia to purchase.
  • One if the most unique places on the planet!
