We finally made it back to Joshua Tree National Park after nearly 3 years! Thanks to our Airstream Club, we stayed in Jumbo Rocks campground where it’s almost impossible to snag a campsite. In reality, these days it’s almost impossible to get a campsite at any Joshua Tree campground. A park ranger told us it was not all that busy when it was a National Monument, but became very popular after it became a National Park.
Joshua Tree is a beautiful park with lots to offer. Some things to see and do include great hiking trails, historic sites, rock climbing, geological sites, birding, horseback riding, biking and star gazing programs. The downside is that the park is crowed 7 days a week, except maybe during the summer when it is real hot. As a side note I’d have to say that rock climbing has to weed out the gene pool a little bit. It was crazy watching folks climb up the face of 100 plus foot sheer rock walls.
