We spent New Year's Eve in Joshua Tree a year ago in our Airstream. Enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the 29 Palms Inn...food was outstanding, service terrific and the place itself is a flashback to the 60's. Don't imbibe too heavily as there is a swimming pool just steps from the restaurant's entrance. Also had a ranger-led tour of the Bill Key's homestead, a family that lived off the grid. Tour is worth your while. Enjoy!

Joshua Tree National Park has lots of interesting camping spots and walking/hiking areas. We've stayed there several times and use it as a shortcut/scenic drive from I-10 to Victorville/high desert area (Phoenix to San Francisco route) to avoid LA. No full-hookup sites, but two campgrounds have dump stations. See details below:

We were just there at the Black Rock CG over Thanksgiving. Good place to hang out, not crowded and very scenic!

We got married in Joshua Tree! It's a beautiful spot Cottonwood campground is going to be the warmest-that's down in the south end of the park. Hidden Valley and Jumbo Rocks are beautiful. I agree with the 29 Palms Inn. Great spot for food and hanging out. Our favorite spot to eat in Palm Springs is Native Foods by FAR!

Have fun

Ditto Mojave on the temps. Just came down from Yucca Valley at 26 degrees. Last year in JT it was 32 degrees during the holidays during the middle of the day. No hookups at any of the campgrounds, so be prepared.

Take in the Palm Springs Follies.

It's fantastic and "ALL" the performers are senior citizens.

Riff Markowitz, the MC, will have you laughing out of your seat, guaranteed.
