New Out Door Hospitality Experience for Joshua Tree Visitors
Joshua tree National Park – Winter 2021 Edition – AutoCamp will open a new Joshua Tree location on Dec. 16, offering the unique outdoor hospitality experience amongst the famed Joshua Trees and subtle rock formations.
The 25-acre property located adjacent to Joshua Tree National Park will offer 47 custom-built Airstreams, four accessible suites and four “X Suites,” all equipped with updated HVAC systems for all-season weather, as well as unique outdoor showers available in some premium units.
The property will be the first among the AutoCamp brand to offer an outdoor bar with a full beverage program, as well as a hybrid hot tub and plunge pool. A focal point for all AutoCamp destinations, the Clubhouse at Joshua Tree is a modern take on traditional Quonset Huts.
Overseen by HKS, the architecture of 768 square foot space nods to the eclectic nature of the town in which it resides, supplemented with clean mid-century modern details. The intentional use of raw and natural materials will weather in place and improve with age as they blend into the natural landscape.
In keeping with the natural spirit of this place, AutoCamp Joshua Tree was designed for minimal impact on the environment, incorporating low water use, native plantings, xeriscaping to avoid irrigation, on-site water treatment, a heavy reliance on solar power, and dark sky-compliant lighting to preserve the clear view of stars.
Each AutoCamp property is a singular experience—some of the exciting new amenities at Joshua Tree include custom textiles in each of our 55 units, as well as some units featuring outdoor showers, and design elements by creative partners like Alexis Moran, Fong Brothers Co., Galanter & Jones, and All Roads Studio (another one of our neighbors!), among others, along with the poolside bar.
From special dinner series by partner chefs cooked in our mobile kitchen to movie nights under the stars, yoga and sound healing sessions outdoors, and fireside chats, we’re planning a slate of programming that’s designed to create a sense of community and newness that you can access now. Plus, there’s an almost endless list of possibilities designed to make the most of your experience in the park, from mountain biking to rock climbing—or maybe a local brewery tour if you’re looking to take things a little slower.
AutoCamp now has three locations in California to enjoy: Yosemite, the Russian river, Joshua Tree. Plus locations in Zion, the Catskills and Cape Cod.
