The Covered Wagon Adventure

Experience an adventure into the Palm Springs, Sonoran Desert like our pioneer ancestors did, on a mule-drawn Covered Wagon! Journey into a 30,000 acre pristine, desert oasis wilderness preserve accessible and exclusive only to our Covered Wagon Tours! Our crew at Covered Wagons enjoys interacting with our guests as much as you will enjoy us. Your expert, on-board naturalist guide and Wagon Master will entertain you as you explore the rugged canyon landscapes, natural oases, flora & fauna of this ancient Desert Wilderness and the geology of the San Andreas Fault. Warning: If your are offended by our corny science jokes, it's San Andrea's Fault! Your senses will be captivated as you travel through this land as unchanged as nature created it! Ride through the lush oases. Watch the colorful desert sunset sink over the Mountains as you return to camp where the aroma of a Chuck-Wagon BBQ and the sound of live western music welcomes you back to a time you might have dreamed of. Enjoy the magic of a desert evening listening to live music, dining on slow-cooked BBQ and relaxing under a desert sunset, moon and stars. Covered Wagons is the most enjoyable way to see, taste and experience our amazing desert ecosystem!

They're on the wagon to educate and entertain you with the natural history, geology, Native American and pioneer history as we ride through this unique desert preserve managed by California State Parks and the Center for Natural Lands Managment.
