Following our Arizona boondocking stay in January, we headed west into California to visit Joshua Tree National Park. Joshua Tree NP is known for its concentration of iconic Joshua Trees and is loved by rock climbers for its concentration of fascinating formations and, due to its proximity to Los Angeles, it’s often packed on weekends. Which of course is when we arrived, without a reservation for the campground.
Thank goodness for Campendium.com, where we found BLM camping at Chiriaco Summit, also known as Joshua Tree South. We found a nice spot (Karma approved) literally a stones’ throw from the south entrance of Joshua Tree, and settled in for the next 2 weeks.
Nearly all of the Joshua Trees, nifty rock piles and hiking trails are in the northwest corner of the Park. We drove up for a day and hiked to Barker Dam and checked out the sights in general.
