    The National Park Shop & Information Point: Shopping in the Park

    by ranger49 Written Feb 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the kind of shop so often found at places like National Parks.
    But this was a particularly attractive and well stocked one, with really friendly and helpful staff.
    We bought sun hats, post cards and books about the Park and for our grandchildren Joshua Tree T-shirts.
    The latter were the most long-lasting of any such take-home presents.
    One of my grandsons refused to wear any other because he thought being a Park Ranger was so cool, and the subtle khaki green colours were obviously the ones to be seen in.

    Well made, good quality and totally lacking in tackiness!

    Any in Twenty Nine Palms: The store has it all

    Buy as much as you can outside of the park in its neighboring towns. We hit up Twenty Nine Palms and it didn't seem to expensive. Plus your supporting the smaller towns around the park. You'd hate to not be able to make a beer or smores run.

  • Oasis Visitor Center: National Park shop

    by RblWthACoz Updated Apr 4, 2011

    At each of the entrances to the park there are shops. The best I felt was at the northern entrance in 29 Palms. The Oasis Visitor Center has the nicest displays and best (yet small) selection of items to purchase of all the shops. The Cottonwood Visitor Center has many of the same things but is much smaller and the displays are not as well done and intricate. On the western side, there are many shops people have set up to sell things. They looked too touristy for my taste, so I just passed them by and went right into the park.

    What to buy: books, art, souvenirs

    What to pay: standard prices

    Goyote Corner: Coyote Corner

    Just outside the park entrance, Goyote Corner is a neat mix between a head shop and climbing outfitter. They have a great selection of books on desert life.
