Upon entering I asked the informative women for a map she said she had plenty .What region she asked.I told her I wanted to camp in the park.She said good luck.I told her I stayed at the best western the night before and she said I would probably be staying there again. And she was right.

If you are new to the area, vacationing or just passing through a quick stop at The California Welcome Center is a "must" - they have tons of information and maps available and the volunteer staff are knowledgeable and courteous. Additionally, the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce is located here and the Basin Wide Foundation has an office here.

The California Welcome Center in Yucca Valley is always a good stop for information about the desert and local information. Very well put together and displayed, helpful staff, vast information about the local area. Nice stop for maps and where to stay, eat etc. Just a nice place to stretch your legs and be welcomed to the desert experience.

Fortunately I was the only one who ran into the center to pick up a California road map. I walked out with a stack of brochures, and dutifully ignored the glass cases of souvenirs. While I was there, one of the staff was helpfully giving suggestions for the areas - I was impressed with the time and attention she gave... More
