Discover Joshua Tree, CA


Caught somewhere between the rustic sixties and the 21st century, Joshua Tree is a unique town set in the heart of the High Desert of California. Joshua Tree owes its charm to its local residents who proudly run their own community businesses and keep large corporations at bay. The town hosts a collection of handicraft stores, health food shops, and museums but what really draws tourist’s attention to this rural town is its proximity to one of the best national parks in the USA, Joshua Tree National Park. It’s certainly worth picking up a motorhome rental in Joshua Tree to explore the rugged wilderness and fascinating geological formations that the park has to offer.

When you book an RV in San Bernardino County, you’ll be in close proximity to the San Bernardino National Forest, Sheephole Valley Wilderness, and Angeles National Forests. You’ll even be within a pleasant drive of California’s beautiful coastline as well as major cities such as Los Angeles and San Diego.

The Great Outdoors

Right on the doorstep of Joshua Tree is the Joshua Tree National Park. A haven for a variety of wildlife and bird species and a well-known getaway for adrenaline seekers. Widely known as the place where two deserts meet, this national park offers a wide range of recreational activities and the opportunity to explore both the Mojave and the Colorado Desert. You can begin your visit with an easy day hike in Cotton Wood Spring. It was once inhabited by Cahuilla Indians and became an important water stop for miners during the Gold Rush. See the highlights on a three-mile loop via Winona Mill Site and Mastodon Peak. A more challenging eight-mile hike takes visitors to the Lost Palms Oasis, the park’s biggest concentration of California Fan Palms. Joshua Tree also offers world-class rock climbing and bouldering. Plus, there are a number of scenic back country roads which are suitable for 4x4 driving.

With a travel trailer rental in Joshua Tree, you can drive your vehicle to Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains. This quaint lake is located 7,000 feet above sea level and surrounded by pine forest. During the California summertime, it offers a cool escape for hiking and mountain biking. The lake offers 22 miles of shoreline for fishing and over 100 miles of forestry trails. It’s also possible to rent a canoe or kayak and discover the hidden beauties of Big Bear Lake. During the winter skiers and snowboarders can park a Joshua Tree RV rental in the small city of Big Bear and ride the scenic ski lift to the alpine resorts on Snow Summit and Bear Mountain.

RV Parks

When you rent a motorhome in Joshua Tree, you’ll need to find a place to park it overnight. Fortunately, there is a good selection of RV and motorhome parks just a stone’s throw from town. The area is well connected via the Twentynine Palms Highway which joins Twentynine Palms to Yucca Valley. Along this road, there are gas stations and Walmarts where you can fill up on camping supplies.

Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground is located in town, on the edge of the Mojave Desert. The park is easily accessible via Sunfair Road but still offers a tranquil lakeside campground. The site has RV campsites with hookups, as well as hot showers, toilets, and Wi-Fi. When you park your Joshua Tree, CA RV rental here, you’re extremely close to Joshua Tree National Park and also near Morongo Valley.

Black Rock Canyon, within Joshua Tree National Park, is just south Joshua Tree, in Yucca Valley. The family-friendly site offers basic tent and RV camping with an onsite dump station and day-use picnic area. If you’re after a more primitive camping experience then you should consider a few days here.

In about 30 minutes in your Joshua Tree camper rental, you can be in Desert Hot Springs at the Palm Springs/Joshua Tree KOA. This RV park boasts many activities for the whole family like a natural hot springs spa, a pool, and mini-golf. The sites are full hookup with laundry and bathroom facilities as well. Staying here means you’ll be close to attractions including the hiking trails of Palm Springs and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.

Explore the City

There’s certainly no shortage of attractions for art lovers. The Joshua Tree Art Gallery is located on Palms Highway in the city center. This is a Fine Arts Gallery which is open from September to June and hosts the work of Co-operative members. Browsing the gallery visitors can see collections of photography as well as paintings and sculptures. Nearby is the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum. This 10-acre open-air sculpture park was created by Alabama born Noah Purifoy during the last 15 years of his life. His sculptures were built right in Joshua Tree and constructed entirely from junk materials.

If you’re into uncommon attractions then the World Famous Crochet Museum is also worth a visit. This one of a kind museum is fitted inside a drive-through photo booth and jam-packed with crochet animals. Also, on the outskirts of town is the Joshua Tree Southern Railroad Museum which is a dream come true for train enthusiasts. The museum houses a collection of steam models in memory of Francis Mosely, plus a number of life-size train cars.
