Artist Andrea Zittel was inspired to create an ‘out of this world’ futuristic campsite after seeing Nasa tests in the Mojave Desert. Andrea mentions, “Everybody has their desert fantasy; my particular fantasy was probably living on an alien landscape.”

The Wagon Station Encampment which is only open in fall and spring, has a sci-fi pioneer aesthetic, and is located in Joshua Tree.

It’s made up of twelve A-Z Wagon Stations, as well as a communal outdoor kitchen, open air showers and composting toilets.

Each little wagon opens up to reveal a space large enough to sleep in, with a bed, shelf, hooks and a small rear door.
