Help me plan a trip to Joshua Tree, CA

Help me plan a 3-day trip to Joshua Tree (CA). Or alternatively, suggest another really cool natural area to check out in Southern California in late January. I am in my cousin's wedding in the L.A. area and am coming with my girlfriend. We decided to take a few extra days--she's never been to California and I've only ever kept my visits to family time, usually in the OC area. We're renting a car, so we'll have transportation. Is late January a good time to go? Do you have any recommendations for gear rental (doubt I'll be able to climb, unfortunately)? I have gear at home in Michigan, but I'd like to travel light. If you have alternative suggestions--they can be around L.A.--I'd love to hear them. Thanks.

Help me find an awesomesauce campground in Southern California!

Looking for some suggestions for camp sites in the vicinity of Southern California for a camping trip this weekend. Amenities-wise the basics would work fine - water, a fire pit, and level ground to pitch our tent. Anything above and beyond that is icing. The campsite must allow dogs (we plan on bringing our pug, Hoggle). We really enjoy trail hiking and solitude and we most likely won't be doing any kind of water-related activities, although picturesque lakes and streams are a plus. Past places we've enjoyed camping at: -Coral Pink Sand Dunes - outside of Kanab, UT -Tanner's Flat Campground - UT -Fernwood Lodge - Big Sur, CA -Joshua Tree State Park -Malibu Creek State Park This is going to be a weekend trip so the driving distance has to be manageable. So, please, no recommendations for Redwoods National Park or Zion or something like that.
