Desert Retreat is a great spot to stop and rest during a road trip. The hostess, Jennifer, lives on the property in a yellow school bus with three adorable and friendly dogs. When you arrive you will see a tire-fence and the bus--this is how you know you're in the right place! Think of her land like BLM land, plenty of space to pitch a tent but no formal amenities by way of toilets; luckily there are lots of bushes for privacy when nature calls though so it's no problem as far as I'm concerned ; ) The El Dorado Hot Springs are about six miles from the site, but be sure to call ahead and book if you want a private soak as they are popular. Desert Retreat is a quiet and peaceful place, especially for being close to the highway, but that proximity is what makes it a good location for road-trippers. Jennifer will make you feel instantly welcome with her kindness--she even invited us to have a campfire dinner with her but sadly we couldn't stick around! The property was fun to explore, and there are some good hiking spots close by as well.
