Don't look if you're not going to book.
Because these camping pods — and the community they create, all designed by artist and designer Andrea Zittel — are irresistible.
They're part of the Wagon Station Encampment at Joshua Tree, a privately run quasi-residency open to creative-minded souls during the temperate seasons (fall and spring). Hiking, reading, journaling, coffee making — all are on the docket, as seen in the video below.
There are 12 pods, which each sleep one; non-sleeping, communal services are available in a shared dining space. Other needs are addressed with open air showers and composting toilets.
The price? It's recently gone up — from 0 to $100 a week. Entry is by application only; it's too late to apply for the fall session, but keep an eye out for the opening of applications for the spring.
