Hicksville Trailer Palace

At the end of May, a funky creative enclave in the Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree National Park opened its doors to artists and wayward travelers who needed a place to stay outside of Los Angeles. Hicksville Trailer Palace is a kitschy, fun place, one where old trailers have been gutted and redesigned by theme. Set around a small saltwater pool, these trailers make up the lodging at Hicksville.

I had the opportunity to visit Hicksville in June on assignment for Matador Trips, and you can read the complete account of my stay here, but I wanted to let the readers of Kaleidoscopic Wandering know what a truly cool retreat it is. Here are a few photos, which provide only a glimpse into the nature of Hicksville Trailer Palace.

    Adorable! I love the idea of a writer’s retreat there -but they should add a swim-up bar to their saltwater pool to really complete the place. 🙂
