Joshua Tree is an American National Park in Southeastern California, in the east of Los Angeles and San Bernardino. It is located in Riverside County & San Bernardino County, California, and is forty miles apart from Palm springs. This National Park was formed in October 1994. It is an extensive & protected area of around 3,200 sq. km. in Southern California with uneven rocky formations and an arid desert landscape. Joshua Tree National Park is named by the Mormon Settlers, who visited the area in the mid-1800s after the bristled & twisted Joshua trees found in the region.
Most of the park's desert ecosystem embraces these slow growing Joshua trees. The National Park Service oversees the management of this park.
Joshua Tree National Park is also famous for camping. There are four campgrounds, namely Black Rock, Cottonwood, Indian Cove, and Jumbo Rocks, that can be booked by reservation. The peak months are from Oct to May. Some regions of the park are for day use only. Tickets are available at the park entrance and visitors centers.
