Winter Camping in California

Joshua Tree National Park, California.

When the winter blues set in and you are stuck inside, sometimes you have to dream and plan for an escape into nature that isn’t snowy or cold. If you live in Arizona, Nevada, or California, you have outdoor options in the winter months. If you don’t live in those states, and you’d like to plan an escape that doesn’t include an airline trip to some tropical region, the camping opportunities in the southern deserts of California may be just the thing.

If you are a wildflower enthusiast, it would be best to plan your trip to these areas in February, but be aware that everyone else also knows how beautiful the blooming desert is, so plan ahead for a February visit.

Environmental blogger Chris Clarke has gathered up a list of the nine best desert camping spots in southern California for the KCET website. His list includes camping in Mojave National Preserve, Death Valley National Park, Anza Borrego Desert State Park, California BLM land, and areas adjacent to Joshua Tree National Park, one of my favorite places.
