On the North East end of Morongo Valley, just about a half mile in on a dirt road, this desert oasis is a truly special property with amazing views and abundant desert wildlife and flora.  

The property is tucked into a canyon in the far corner of the valley and boasts 100 year old cottonwood trees.  You know you're in a special place in the desert when you find cottonwood trees!  

It's a quiet and peaceful escape from city life.  Ideally situated between Joshua Tree and Palm Springs, this is the perfect home base location for visiting the surrounding area. 

Come stay for Coachella Valley Music Festival, Stage Coach, Palm Springs, Modernism Week, the Hwy 62 Art Tours, Joshua Tree Music Festival or any of the many events happening in the area year long.   Or make it a stargazing trip.  Check Google for 'moon phases'.  For the best view of the stars, you'll want to visit when the moon is NOT in the night sky, although your surroundings will be just as magical if it is!  

With only 25 minutes from Palm Springs and 35 minutes to Joshua Tree National Park, you've hit the tri-fecta when staying in this magical valley.  And Pioneer Town and Pappy & Harriet's are just a wonderfully scenic 20 minute drive away.  Pioneer Town is full of fantastic history and photo ops for an early evening stroll before entering the rustic and friendly 'Pappy's' for some of the best food and live music in the Morongo Basin.  An intimate environment in a creative rustic space where Paul McCartney played for a crowded house in 2016 to 300 locals and visitors alike at an impromptu mid-week concert.  There are great memories to be had in the desert!  Let's make some!!!

Nearby you will also find great hiking, horseback riding, hot springs, bird watching, Big Morongo Canyon Preserve and much more. Come see for yourself!

Desert Rose is the appropriate choice to name this place. A total pleasant surprise to find. From its funky collection of articles that catch your eye to the well stocked common areas. A very comfortable place. Rose Marie is a wonderful host and is busy making the place more interesting..we will be looking forward to returning.

Welcoming people and landing spot. Rosemarie is an intuitive and thoughtful host.

Enjoy gathering spaces and fire pit or set up your own camp on open land.

Great spot. The property has a outdoor communal eating area with a full kitchen. The camp layout is great- you can choose between being social or reclusive. I needed a quiet site, and the host chose me a spot so I could sleep soundly and not wake others when I headed out at 6 am for hike. The other campers were welcoming and all offered me a beer plus showed me around kitchen. I was a female solo traveler and felt safe and welcomed. Thanks for a easy set up.

Amazing experience! This place is a beautiful oasis filled with friendly people. The amenities were plentiful, lots of open areas to hike around and explore, and the hospitality was top notch. We are already planning our next visit to the Desert Rose!

One of the most pleasant camping experiences we have had in a while, just far enough from the main road to have peace and quiet yet far enough away to have the silence we look for heading out to the desert. Our host was so nice and friendly, we will definitely be coming back and will bring friends next time!
