Joshua Tree National Park Reviews & Ratings
Interesting that there are no Joshua trees at the main part of this park, and never have been (it's the wrong climate). We didn't do much here except get our passport stamped; it was too hot. It would probably be a great place to visit in 6 months...
Truly a neat geological area! The national parks truly make you realize how special, and amazing nature is, and how fragile and small the areas truly are. There is no other place on Earth like it, and the area is so small, a very humbling experience and treat to be able to enjoy it!
Always worth the drive. You will never regret the trip. The hiking and camping is easy and inexpensive. You need to bring water and a portable shower if your staying longer than few days. The milky way is amazing with a new moon. A trio you will never forget.
I took two little ones and they loved it. On my second trip my daughter and I were confronted by a very rude park ranger as we getting ready to leave our campsite. With a raised voice he said "get out of my park"! He startled my 10 yr old daughter. This happened as pulled up to our camp site that I paid for and after I greater him "good morning". We left. I looked into this and apparently many other visitors have experienced the same thing. The parks belong to everyone. I'm not white like the ranger and hate to think it had to do with my race. We live in southern California where we have a wide range of ethnicities. Every year for the past 15 yrs I've taken my family to Yosemite, Zion, the Grand Canyon and countless state parks. Joshua Tree I will never go back to nor recommend to anyone.
Big park with some really pretty spots. Definitely bring extra extra water as walking around for a minute will dry you up. It is after all a desert.. some of the trees are really big and pretty. Some cool rock formations. Skull rock was interesting. Definitely go as early in the day as possible.
