Once again, the California desert does not disappoint. This is where artists, bands, groups of hipster friends from the City and those who just love to get away from the mundane come to relax for the weekend. Secreted away just a few miles outside of Joshua Tree, this surreal vintage "trailer palace" features old Airstreams and tricked out theme trailers of various sizes (think glam beauty shop or alien themed) as well as a full-fledged rehearsal space and recording studio, a teepee with a firepit, horseshoes, saltwater pool, ping pong, and all the other amenities you might need for your good times over a weekend at desert summer camp. Go to it!Recommended for:

The owner of this business is extremely unprofessional and I caution anyone against doing business with him. Two friends bought my wife and I a weekend stay at Hicksville as a wedding present. After having a last minute work emergency, our friends needed to change the reservation and asked if we could move the dates or move the reservation to another friend's name. Morgan, the owner of Hicksville, was very resistant to this as it was against his "policies". Morgan was unwilling to work with us when we offered up several very reasonable solutions. Morgan then emailed the following:
"What I am going to do now is cancel both reservations and refund 100%
of her money. In addition to this the following four people will not
be allowed at Hicksville Trailer Palace. Ever."
I should note at this point that we weren't asking for a refund. Because we asked for a small change in services that any other hospitable business would easily accomodate, Morgan BANNED everyone involved in the trip from ever returning (or going as two of the members of the group were going for the first time) to Hicksville.
Morgan then followed up by harassing our friend via phone and email. My wife (who is a lawyer) stepped in and professionally asked Morgan to stop harassing our friend. Morgan's response to this was the following email (verbatim except removal of our friend's name):
Shut the fuck up. We're trying to get her her money and needed a new card because hers didn't work. I'm not going email you for that. Just because your daddy's money bought you a law degree doesn't mean you can continue to bother me with this crap.
I will no longer be replying to you. Only XXXX on HER refund so you can now fuck off you stupid cunt.
Hope that's clear enough for you.
My wife and I were returning customers, by the way. This was the way we were treated. Again, I STRONGLY caution against doing business with a sexist unprofessional who would treat his customers in such a manor and become so hostile so quickly.

Great place to hang with family and friends. We went with a group of 8 who stayed in various themed trailers (I stayed in the Pony). We played along with the kitch environment and dressed up in flannels. The place was great for playing. They had BB guns, bows, bean bad game (I was exceptional), a mini pool, a jacuzzi, BBQ, mini trampoline. The bathrooms and shower were clean and everything was well maintained. There are about 9 trailers total varying in size. We met some really cool people staying as you r all kind of confined in one giant circular fence. I would definitely go back. This is my kind of "camping".Recommended for:

Hicksville is a one-of-a-kind "trailer palace" in a remote part of Joshua Tree. The property has retrofitted trailers for 1-2 people decorated in different themes (Haunted Tiki! 70's lovepad! Space aliens!) and a few larger options for bigger groups. The property has every kind of activity and game one could want in the desert. Archery? Sure. Salt water pool? You got it! Jacuzzi on the roof? Why the heck not!? And let's not forget about the full sized functioning teepee or mobile recording studio. As if that wasn't enough, the owners are very friendly and accommodating and ensure that your stay is as comfortable as can be. This is a seriously fun place.
