Joshua Tree is named after the uniquely shaped trees that dot the land, and has been welcoming campers from all walks of life for as long as people can remember. It is characterized not only by the famous Joshua Trees, but the dusty, rocky landscape that encompasses the surrounding areas. It is a truly unique place to visit, one that can be best appreciated by choosing one of the best places to stay during your camping trip. This way, you can sleep in the heart of nature whilst resting up for the days ahead. Catch the best views at Keys View, which gives access to stunning glimpses of the park, and hike through Cottonwood Spring, which looks heavenly as the sun goes down. Follow the trail near Arch Rock to see natural rock formations at their best.
