Your Blacksford representative will guide you through a comprehensive vehicle orientation, after which you’ll set out on the 4-hour drive to Joshua Tree, CA. Enjoy your Full RV Hookup site at Joshua Tree Lake & RV Park and rest up before starting your big adventure.  

Day 2: Customized Private Tour, Joshua Tree National Park

Your first day exploring the park kicks off with an exciting private tour, led by your expert Good Trip Adventures guide, along Park Boulevard and through the heart of Joshua Tree National Park. Your medically-trained, naturalist guide is more than just an expert; they’re an enthusiast. Their passion for Joshua Tree’s wonders shines through as they delve into topics like geology, wildlife, history, and hiking trails. Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the park’s intricacies under their expert guidance.

Joshua Tree is home to some of the most unusual plant life in the country, and the park spans the intersection of the Mojave and Colorado deserts, creating a unique combination of climate conditions that are the cause of its ecological wonders. Your guide will take you to viewpoints, stunning vistas, and paths that wind their way among the famed Joshua Trees and cholla cactus that call the region home. Plus, enjoy a catered, gourmet picnic lunch amidst a backdrop of jaw-dropping scenery.

What makes this tour truly exceptional is its flexibility, catered completely to your interests and abilities. Whether it’s botany lessons or hiking adventures, your seasoned guide will tailor the day perfectly to your liking.

Day 3: Private Rock Climbing and Stargazing 

Lace up your climbing shoes, you’re going rock climbing! Joshua Tree’s unique geology makes it a climber’s dream, and you’ll be spending the morning with a certified rock climbing guide who will teach you the ropes–and yes, this activity is kid-friendly! Your rock guide will tailor the experience to your family’s needs and abilities, taking extra time to make sure everyone feels confident and at ease as they scale the walls.

Recharge in the afternoon back at your RV site before joining your guide for a stargazing tour. You’ll start with a stunning sunset hike as the park transitions into dusk and constellations begin to reveal themselves as night falls. Your guide will provide comfortable seating, dinner, a large telescope, and binoculars for viewing the night sky. It’s an experience you won’t soon forget! 

Day 4: Guided Tour in Joshua Tree National Park

Rejoin your Good Trip Adventures guide for another day in the park to see the myriad things that you didn’t have time for the day before! Head out to the famed Keys View, one of the best viewpoints in the entire Park, for a full view of the surrounding mountains and San Andreas Fault. 

Your guide will tailor the day to you, whether you want to take shorter nature walks to see cacti, hike to the summit of a rocky mountain for breath-taking views, visit a desert oasis, or explore an old ranch and learn about the area’s complex human history. There are so many trails to choose from, but your guide knows this park like the back of their hand and will prioritize the most magical trails on the map. Enjoy another gourmet picnic lunch full of your favorite foods and snacks. 

In the evening, you’ll head back to Joshua Tree Lake & RV park for a relaxing evening. Enjoy sunset by the water, or try your hand at fishing in the catch and release lake.

Day 5: Until Next Time!

Today your time in Joshua Tree draws to an end as you head back on the approximately four hour drive back to Las Vegas. Here you’ll say farewell to your home away from home at Blacksford RV Rentals and continue on your journey. While your amazing desert adventure may be concluding, the memories you’ve created and the natural wonders you’ve witnessed will remain with you for a lifetime.
