This camp WAY exceeded our expectations and I definitely recommend it! The host is very communicative and prompt with responding and was extremely welcoming when we met her. Upon arrival of the "Bubbling Wells Ranch" gates we were already blown away by all of the neat artsy details just driving in! The host met us at the "Yerxa Town" intersection (we just followed the cute signs to get there). She showed us where to park and guided us to our campsite while giving us a little tour. We were really lucky because we were one of the first (and only) campers to stay here and were placed on a site right next to the "town". The canopy tent they had prepared for us was HUGE and could easily fit 6 grown people if we wanted, maybe more had it not been for the slight slant of the site. It was clean and breathable which helped a bit in the desert heat. The communal area (which was basically our own for the whole day) had a little outdoor living room, saloon area with a mini fridge where we stored some food and drinks (but it isn't a big space so bring your own coolers and ice too), a bathroom with soap and towels, and a shower. It lit up at night time and we used our own lanterns just to get around. We brought our own propane grill but we didn't need additional canopies or chairs as there was plenty of shade and seating in the little town and by the watering hole.

We brought our own floaties for the watering hole and sat in the fill and drain spa in the evening which took only a few minutes to fill and was SO warm. We practiced yoga in the morning on the deck overlooking the water and went for a walking tour around the property. We had such a great time taking advantage of all of the amenities available here.

The only issues we experienced were desert wind smacking our tent (but hey, that's just mother nature) and were thankful that they had provided such a strong and durable tent and had tethered it securely for us, and then some visitors near our campsite from the airbnb on the property in the Yerxa Town (but everyone was respectful, so no big, and it really is meant to be a shared space). In the late evening hours somewhere down the road we could hear what sounded like vehicles racing and occasional fireworks going on well past 1am so that was a bit of a nuisance for the desert quietness we had hoped for but still..... that does not take away from the AMAZING experience we had overall on this property which I can only imagine will get even better over time! There's so much to it..we definitely wish we had booked two days and can't wait for the spa services to open.
