    We are very lucky to host Desert Daze at an extremely special location in Joshua Tree. The landscape of the campgrounds and adjacent properties are filled with prehistoric plants and native animals. Please be mindful of your surroundings and leave no trace. Do not go beyond the campground. That is not our space.
