Anyone entering the park from the south will get to Cottonwood first. Flush toilets and running water make it a hit among half-hearted participants. The draw for the rest of us is cactus, lots of it. You can hike the one-mile nature trail to find out what the various prickly plants are called, then try the 8-mile trail to a fan-palm oasis when you've had your fill of arid desolation. Reservations accepted, open year round.Please enjoy the campsite photos of Cottonwood campground in Joshua Tree National Park.  We will continue to add more campsite photos of the campground if some are not available.
