Best Time for Glamping in Joshua Tree?

The optimal time to embark on a glamping adventure in Joshua Tree is during spring or fall. Summers can be scorching hot, while winters can get chilly. However, most glamping sites mentioned in this guide are open year-round and equipped with air conditioning and heating. If you’re planning a summer visit, we recommend starting your days early to beat the heat and then taking advantage of the pool or enjoying the cool indoors. For winter visits, pack warm clothes and layers, as it’s the perfect season for stargazing under the clear night sky.
