"Experience the healing magic of Joshua Tree California for yourself."

This gorgeous Joshua Tree Highlands location is ideal to really experience the healing magic of Joshua Tree for yourself. The desert can be a fresh start, a space to integrate, to unwind, to dive deep into your ideas, to laugh and play, to feel and to heal.

This is a truly magical and restoring hideaway available for camping. 

The owner Henry Pratt and Momma Dee are two of the most down to earth and wonderful people you'll ever meet.  

You'll be refreshed and grounded by the overwhelming beauty, seasonal fauna, and extraordinary views.  The experience will be one you'll remember for a lifetime! 

This enchanted desert high land camping area offers seclusion, meditation, and fun and yet is still close enough to the Village to easily access the Cafes, shoppes, local music, farmers market, weekly art festivals and amenities that Joshua Tree has to offer. 

A must see and experience!

Joshua Tree Love!

Motion is an amazing campsite!! The views are incredible and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into the layout of the site and the communal area. There are so many little touches that turn this desert campground into a home from home place to stay. Mike was so friendly and relaxed, his directions were perfect and we felt very comfortable during our stay. The stars were incredible at night and views for sunset and sunrise were well worth staying awake/waking up for! Our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer!

The camp site is really cool and has so much character! It is located right outside the national park, but still close to amenities and facilities.

Michael was so responsive via text before we got to the site and then came by to introduce himself and offer advice on best nearby routes to explore (and where to hike to find wild pinon!) once we'd arrived. The camp was super cute with all the amenities we needed, to include olive oil to cook with! We had such a great time and would definitely return on our next trip to JT. Thanks so much, Michael!

The kitchen area is a real bonus. The sitting area is cute and has nice views. Getting to the campsite you have to drive on a VERY bumpy dirt road. Be prepared because I doubt all vehicles could make it. There is absolutely no shade here, which makes sense with it being the desert. But just a warning.

Relaxing desert paradise!

We had an amazing stay at Motion Recalibration Station. The kitchen area was great for cooking and everything was well-kept. We loved eating our meals at the tables overlooking the valley. It's a little bit more expensive than camping inside the park but the amenities make it worth it (plus, it's only a 10-minute drive from the park entrance). Michael was super nice and welcoming. We will definitely be staying here again if we go back to Joshua Tree!

Such a great place to go camping. My boyfriend and I camped for the night recently and I wish we would have stayed for a 2nd night. We liked it so much.

The set up was great; very much like the description. There are a lot of areas where you can set up your tent throughout the property. The shared kitchen area and communal space were fully stocked with cookware, utensils, etc. We didn't even need to pack our own.

Communication and directions were spot on. We didn't have any issues finding the place. And connecting with Michael was super easy and clear.

I'll definitely be back!
