Joshua Tree Camp Weekend!
Save the Date!!

We’ve got reservations at Joshua Tree National Park, Cottonwood Group Site. Details as we get closer to the date!
A note from Herley Jim Bowling:
We’ve been camping at Joshua Tree NP since it was a National Monument well before it was designated a National Park. That designation brought fame and fortune to the Park and bigger crowds. For several decades we camped every year at Sheep Pass Group Campground near the center of the Park but now it’s very difficult to get reservations there because of all the climbing groups that love that area as much as we do and make reservations during the week and over the weekend. Can’t compete with that, so we’ve been going most years recently to Cottonwood Group in the other desert, the lower Colorado Desert. I love both areas, all of the regions of the Park actually.
Another footnote: The first year we couldn’t get into Sheep Pass we got several adjacent family sites in Indian Cove when Rev. Sandie Richards was pregnant with Woody who will be 21 next month!
