Springtime in the desert is the perfect time to visit.  Our camp is located at the  south end of Joshua Tree National Park at an elevation of 3,000-feet. Unparalleled views of the Colorado Desert with wide, dark and uninterrupted views of the night sky. A variety of nearby hiking and touring activities and cooler temperatures at the higher elevation. The southern section of the park is often overlooked and less visited. It provides a more remote experience and offers a variety of sites to explore.
