2. Joshua Tree National Park
Joshua Tree National Park offers a unique camping experience because it’s situated in the middle of two deserts. The low-lying Colorado Desert lies to the east, while to the west you will find the slightly higher, cooler and wetter Mojave Desert. The park also features ten mountain peaks higher than 5,000 feet in elevation. Are you an adrenaline junkie? Joshua Tree is a popular rock-climbing destination. Watch out for the coyotes and ravens while camping out here.
