Joshua Tree National Park is located in southeastern California. Declared a U.S. National Park in 1994. It is named for the Joshua trees (Yucca brevifolia) native to the park.
Nine established campgrounds exist in the park, three of which provide water and flush toilets. A fee is charged per night for each camping spot. Reservations are accepted at Black Rock Campground and Indian Cove Campground for October through May, while the other campgrounds are first-come first-serve. Backcountry camping, for those who wish to backpack, is permitted with a few regulations.
There are several hiking trails within the park, many of which can be accessed from a campground.
