Joshua Tree National Park is best known for its otherworldly landscapes, towering boulders, clear night skies, and eclectic lodging options. Given that there is no formal lodging inside the park aside from nine (highly sought-after) campgrounds, most visitors base themselves in a nearby Airbnb, airstream, or glamping tent. Glamping in Joshua Tree offers the best of both worlds, blending modern amenities with easy access to nature.
Although there are no glamping sites inside the national park itself, there are an incredible number of options within minutes of the park and easy reach of the area’s top attractions. With so many options to choose from, we’ve scoured the internet and narrowed the list down to the 13 best Joshua Tree glamping sites near the park.

Best Time for Glamping in Joshua Tree?
The best time to glamp in Joshua Tree (or visit generally) is Spring and Fall. Summers are brutally hot, and winters are chilly, though most of the glamping options included in this guide remain open year-round and are well equipped with both a/c and heating. If you’re planning a summer visit, start your days early to beat the heat and then spend the afternoons lounging by the pool or relaxing indoors with the A/C on blast. For winter visits, pack plenty of warm clothes and layers. Winter is a lovely time to see the park for those wanting clear night skies for stargazing.

Magical Airstream Adventure!
Rated 4.98 out of 5 on Airbnb

The same goes for this 2018 Flying Cloud Airstream. With three beds available, up to 4 guests can claim this spot as their adventure HQ and be a short trip away from the park at all times.

JTHAVN Desert Bubble Dome
Rated 6.8 out of 10 on Booking.com
When it comes to Joshua Tree glamping options, you’ll find plenty of locations with skylights for stargazing.

Just beware that some reviews seem to indicate that basic amenities (like water and electricity) are unreliable at the property. Considering the hefty price tag, we advise you to book with caution.
Rates average $1,000 per night for the dome. Check availability on Booking.com.
Fine Print: No minimum stay requirement. Free cancellation up until a specified date. Property is not suitable for children. Pet-friendly free of charge.
