Joshua Tree National Park – Camping and Climbing

Jake has been dreaming about Joshua Tree National Park, and the feeling of the sun on his back as he climbs past the “Dr. Seuss trees” up to the top of a boulder formation.

We had such an amazing camping trip there a few years back. I was looking through the pictures and remembering how incredible it was.

It is relatively easy to get to. If you aren’t local, you can fly into Palm Springs, LAX, Santa Ana (Orange County) or  San Diego.  Then get there by renting a car.  You can also rent camping gear at Joshua Tree Outfitters — anything from tents & sleeping bags to a Coleman camping stove!

When we went, we stayed at the Jumbo Rocks Campsite, it’s the biggest with 124 sites. They have a fee of $10 per site. It was also the closest to the Skull Rock Trail. For reservation information and more about the park you can click HERE.

There are some really cool Airbnbs there too!!

This is probably one of my husband’s favorite places. For him, Joshua Tree is all about rocks, he loves to climb and be outside. The weather is rarely bad, unless it’s the dead of summer, then you might have some serious heat issues. It’s a great place for every level of hiking and climbing. Also, perfect for groups!

Happy Adventures,

Erika
