AutoCamp Joshua Tree Summit Club & Explorer FAQ

Everything you need to know about AutoCamp Joshua Tree and everything that comes along your Summit Club or Explorer package.


How does this all work?

Explorer or Summit Club are packages with exclusive perks that can be redeemed for a room’s stay at AutoCamp Joshua Tree. By purchasing one of these packages, you get access to our online booking calendar where you can book your room at AutoCamp Joshua Tree before we open up booking to the general public. Summit Club packages get first access, followed by Explorer packages. All of this happens before AutoCamp Joshua Tree begins taking bookings from the general public.
