Yucca brevifolia, an enduring symbol of the Mojave Desert in Southern California, may be the namesake of this national park east of Los Angeles, but it’s far from the only thing to see at Joshua Tree. The stony terrain makes it one of America’s rock-climbing meccas, with dozens of trails open for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. The arrival of spring heralds a carpet of wildflowers. Thanks to the crystal-clear desert night sky, the park is also a haven for stargazing. This is why Yurts in Joshua Tree is a popular Joshua Tree Glamping accommodation type.

As it descends from the peaks into the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs, the park encompasses parts of two distinct deserts: The Mojave and the Sonoran. These two desert systems separate California’s southernmost national park into two arid ecologies with vastly different appearances. The difference between them comes down to one thing: elevation. Staying in a Joshua Tree Yurt provides comfort and solitude with nature.

Visitors can only enter the park through three points: Yucca Valley in the west, Twenty-nine Palms in the north, and Cottonwood Springs in the south. The main Visitor Center is located outside the park in Joshua Tree, a nearby town. Park Boulevard runs from the visitor center to Lost Horse Valley in the park’s heart. Three short interpretive trails (Hidden Valley, Barker Dam, and Cap Rock) provide an excellent introduction to the park’s natural and human history. Check out one of these amazing Yurts in Joshua Tree and explore this awesome landscape.

Purty Yurty and Mini-Me are two yurts in Joshua Tree desert designed to provide the ultimate glamping experience for up to four guests.

This is a truly unique and magical experience if you’re looking to relax and connect with loved ones (or enjoy some alone time) in comfort and nature.

Do you need to get away from it all and unwind in the great outdoors? Stay here if space is available; reservations can be made up until midnight on check-in. If you want to rage and party in the desert, this is not the place to go. Watch stunning sunrises and sunsets, stargaze, and enjoy some peace if you need a break from the stresses of daily life.

They only accept bookings with verified government ID, so if you don’t have it already, please do so, and you’ll be able to book right away. You can go to the yurt(s) and check in whenever you want, as it is a self-check-in space. Read your confirmation email from Airbnb or look at the itinerary within the Airbnb app, which will include the house manual and self-check-in information.
