Kind of hard to find. There aren’t many places to camp nearby so it’s a good place, albeit a little expensive for a patch of dirt. We camped in a dry pond and there wasn’t a soul in sight. Very peaceful
Rory was super friendly, helpful and responsive. Property easy to find with following directions and gps coordinates. Served our purpose to star watch during a new moon in an open field. Had a truck and would definitely recommend that since property is soft dirt with small bushes and shrubbery you will have to drive over to camp off of the narrow dirt road. Beautiful sunset and sunrise. However, there were more distant neighbors (barking dogs) than I'd originally imagined as well as sounds from a train track nearby. My daughter slept through it just fine, but I was wishing I had brought my ear plugs!
We loved staying out at Big Spin Ranch! Rory describes it perfectly; it's unmarked land pretty much in the middle of nothing, and we loved it as a quiet solitary retreat. The land was perfectly clean and undisturbed, and we enjoyed hiking around seeing the desert shrubs and animals. It was great to let our four legged campers explore around off-leash without any worry, and they had a blast sniffing around! We were easily able to dig a pit for a great campfire and spent the evening cooking over the fire and enjoying the warmth. The freeway is close by, but we weren't disturbed by the noise at all. We would recommend exercising caution on the roads leading to the site, they are definitely a bit sandy and we had to watch the weather to make sure we didn't get stuck in the mud resulting from rain the following day.
We loved the closeness of this campsite to Petrified Forest National Park and it was great to have an affordable convenient camping spot right nearby.
