October through May is the most popular time to visit, and it’s important to arrive early if you’re hoping to snag a first-come, first-served spot during this time.

Palm Spring to Joshua Tree

Palm Spring to Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree is located just an hour’s drive from Palm Springs, and many visitors opt to stay in Palm Springs and visit the National Park as part of a day trip rather than overnighting in the park itself. Visiting independently or via a guided tour, it’s still possible to see many of the park’s highlights, though you’ll miss out on some of the longer trails, as well as the clear night skies.

How to Get From Palm Springs to Joshua Tree

When driving from Palm Springs to Joshua Tree, we recommend entering the park via the West Entrance near Joshua Tree Visitor Center. To get here from Palm Springs, follow the CA-62 East to Yucca Valley, keeping right on Yucca Trail Rd and then right again on Quail Springs Rd until reaching Park Blvd. At the end of the day, exit via the South Entrance near Cottonwood Visitor Center and follow the I-10 West back to Palm Springs. This way, you’ll be able to experience both the northern Mojave Desert and the southern Colorado Desert in one trip.

Joshua Tree Lodging FAQs

Joshua Trees near Joshua Tree National Park, CA

When is the Best Time to Visit Joshua Tree?

The best time to visit Joshua Tree tends to be Spring and Fall. Summers are hot (with daytime temps averaging 91°F), and winters are chilly, though the park is popular year-round. If you’re visiting in summer, start early to beat the heat and spend afternoons by the pool or lounging indoors with the A/C on. For winter trips, pack warm clothes and layers. Winter is a stunning time to visit the park for those wanting clear night skies for stargazing.

What is the Best Area to Stay Near Joshua Tree?

The most popular area to stay near Joshua Tree National Park is the town of Joshua Tree itself. This is where you’ll find the most lodging and Airbnb options, and the town has many restaurants, grocery stores, local boutiques, and spas. That being said, there are also ample accommodation options in nearby Twentynine Palms, and many choose to visit Joshua Tree as a day trip from Palm Springs, which is just an hour’s drive away.

Are Airbnbs Allowed in Joshua Tree?

Yes. As per the current ordinance, short-term rentals are allowed for 30 days or less at a time. Owners are, however, required to obtain an operating permit.

Does Joshua Tree Allow Dogs?

Joshua Tree National Park allows (leashed) dogs, but they are very limited in where they can go in the park. Dogs are not permitted on any hiking trails and must stay within 100 feet of roads (both paved and unpaved), picnic areas, and campgrounds.
