On this very unique tour of Joshua Tree National Park, we explore the area on a series of hikes by day and enjoy fantastically unique lodging in the evenings. Joshua Tree Autocamp is a luxury lodge with chic, modernized, individual Airstream trailers for each party. You will enjoy the highlights of Joshua Tree along with a very comfortable, modern hotel experience that combines the best of camping and lodging in one experience (campfires, star-lit skies, showers, real beds, and privacy all in one!)
By visiting Joshua Tree in the wonderful winter months, we’ll enjoy relative seclusion and calm in what is quickly becoming one of America’s top national parks. We’ll maximize our time with fulfilling hikes by day to a variety of Joshua Tree must-see features like desert oases and soaring desert summits. Billion-year-old monzogranite intrusions bloom above the surrounding desert, and expansive Joshua Tree “forests” blanket broad valleys. In the mornings and evenings, it feels more like a savannah than a desert, with the bizarre looking Joshua Trees (a member of the Yucca family) framing the horizon at the very edge of the Mojave desert.
