AutoCamp is definitely unique. You are, unsurprisingly, usually staying in a converted Airstream camper, in a park-like setting. This Project is pretty new. If you’re doing Joshua Tree, your options are typical motels (usually run-down) or budget “chains”. Otherwise, you’re making the trek to Palm Springs, which is opposite-land to JT. I loved it here. It’s quirky, but super fun and relaxing. You can make friends and chill at the main building, or totally do your thing. I had one of the large Airstreams and it was awesome; the AC totally will be pumping and it’s a sanctuary from the desert. Further, the trailers are just really well done/thought out. This is pretty close to Park entrances, so you can also go back and forth as you want to, and you’ll want to especially for nightly stargazing and hiking. You can go into town (i.e. main drag is close) or even cook by your trailer. It’s fun stuff.

Check-In: Painless and quick. But to move your luggage, you’ll have to load it on a wagon and roll it to your airstream, which may or may not be close to the parking lot. Room: The airstreams are very nice. We reserved a premium suite, which by looking at it I couldn’t tell what the difference was between the classic and premium. Our airstream was not close the parking at all. HVAC worked great except they don’t want you to turn up the thermostat higher than 72. Which during the night in the desert is pretty cold. Restroom is large and clean. Dining: The general store is well stocked with snacks, drinks, charcoal, and firewood. The suite has the grill with tables and chairs. The square canopy structure has no covering, so you’re just sitting out in the sun. I saw pictures around the Autocamp where the canopy had a cover, so it probably did at one point but got removed for some reason. Good to know: We went during spring break and it was starting to get hot. Middle of summer? Good luck. But there is a small pool. Will we go again?: Likely, but will definitely try other Autocamp locations. Glamping is the way to go.

A desert dream!!

This was the trip of my dreams! Truly can't imagine a more perfect Joshua Tree experience. The property is so close to the entrance of the park, the pool was pristine, and the attention to detail was incredible. I was surprised at how much bigger our lodging felt in-person and how comfortable the beds were. We opted into one of the experiences and were blown away by the sunrise hike, it was so beautiful I'm still thinking about it a few weeks later! I can't wait to check out the other autocamp properties soon.

A lovely unique adventure , with comforts.

The excellent staff at Auto Camp added to our enjoyment. We spent two nights and two days exploring Joshua Tree National Park with our son,, and two granddaughters. Auto Camp is located very close to a park entrance. It is only a year old, and the units are fresh, new, and delightfully equipped with anything guests would need. Bed and futon were very comfortable .!Staff were excellent when I called with questions a few days prior to our stay and were very helpful and extremely pleasant throughout our stay. We were given expert help by one of the staff with starting our fire pit fire for our outdoor s’mores dessert. I definitely recommend Auto Camp Jos

Incredible experience with gorgeous desert vibes

One of the best and most unique lodging experiences Ive had! I loved staying at Autocamp. The airstreams themselves are comfortable and tasteful and I love the modern feel. It had all the best amenities while also lending itself an outdoorsy feel. Definitely the best of both worlds :) Everyone who works there was super friendly and gave us great recommendations for what to do around town. I will definitely be staying here next time I'm in Joshua Tree!
