So close, but yet, so far! About three hours from urban LA, you'll find a place like no other. Joshua Tree NP offers something for everyone. Full of unusual rock formations, this is where beginner and advanced rock climbers test their strength and agility. Not into climbing? No problem, just take a hike and enjoy the desert scenery and note the variety of cacti...they are everywhere high and low so watch your step!
With scouts, stayed in the large group campsites with available pit toilets and recycle bins. BYOWater as you will need plenty for drinking, cooking, and cleaning....dishes and yourself!
Weather changeable, but usually nice and sunny. Also camped in rain and very windy conditions so make sure tents, awnings and supplies are secured....or else! And when it's pitch dark, be on the look out for the Milky Way and shooting stars... an awesome sight! Sound amplified among rocks so for light sleepers, recommend earplugs. But then again, you'll miss the sound of the howling coyotes...now that's nature!
