Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park 

Joshua Tree National Park, located in southeastern California between San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, features two deserts: the higher Mojave Desert and lower Colorado Desert. The Little San Bernardino Mountains also run through the southwest edge of the park.

Named after the eponymous Joshua Tree native to the park, Joshua Tree National Park is a national destination for outdoor recreation, especially camping, hiking, rock climbing, and star gazing.


With nine established campgrounds located throughout the park, there are plenty of places to pitch your tent or even park your RV. For the truly adventurous, backcountry camping is permitted with a few rules and regulations.


Most hiking trails can be accessed from the nine established campgrounds and offer hikers a safe way to view the park without straying into the wilds of the desert landscape.

Rock Climbing

The park is strewn with natural rock formations that offer challenges to all levels of climbing skill. Rarely more than 230 feet tall, the rock formations are great for practice and adept climbers can climb several rocks in a single day.

Star Gazing

Southern California is known for its light pollution, which prohibits proper star gazing. Joshua Tree National Park is well known for its exceptionally dark night skies, which are a result of its relative isolation, high elevation, and dry desert air.
