Our original plan was to spend 2 or 3 days touring Joshua Tree National Park. |
But after 5 days of hiking and sightseeing we still did not want to leave.
We signed up for 3 nights at 29 Palms RV resort before we checked out the NP campgrounds. The resort was nice and had a large indoor pool which we enjoyed after hiking in the NP.
But after we saw the Belle Campground in the National Park we could not resist staying there for two nights. It was dry camping (no hook-ups), remote and quiet. Most campgrounds in the NP have very small sites and would not accommodate our size motorhome. The Belle CG only has 18 sites and we ended up in site 18.
Joshua Tree NP is in the "High Desert" region and the park has valleys at different altitudes. The plant and tree growth in the park varies as you change altitude.
