Cottonwood Campground Reopens at Joshua Tree National Park
Joshua Tree National Park announced the reopening today of the Cottonwood Campground for camping and visitor use. Cottonwood Campground was closed last September due to flash flooding from an intense rainstorm. The localized flooding damaged Cottonwood Campground as well as many local trails.
