About Small Tipi @ Camp Temenōs
The small tipi is a peaceful hermitage which ideally accommodates one camper, two in side-by-side cots. There is a hot/cold handwashing sink inside and a seating area with chiminea outside for campfires when the weather permits. We provide the cozy cot/s and linens, tea, coffee, and mineral-rich drinking water from the well.
Our homestead Camp Temenōs sits on the north edge of the Pioneertown Mountains Preserve in California's Mojave Desert with a trail from our back gate into the preserve. (Guided hikes and topo maps available upon request) We're 9 miles from Yucca Valley, 5 miles from charming Pioneertown and the legendary music venue Pappy & Harriet's, a 30 min drive to Joshua Tree National Park, an 18 min drive to the Integratron & Giant Rock, and a few minutes' walk away from sweet, complete solitude in a true desert wildland full of riparian corridors and boulder-rich canyons. The desert truly is alive and our neighborhood makes a great basecamp.
Our family home is in the center of a 1.25 acre property and there are 3 cultivated spaces available for rent in the corners of the acre (the 1950 Spartan Mansion, the large tipi and the small tipi) as well as several good tent spots and an RV electric hookup site (no septic).
We have a private, heated bathroom/showerhouse, a hot & cold outdoor shower, an outdoor kitchen with fridge, hot/cold dishwashing sink and campstove and several communal spaces on the property to enjoy a fire, grill, sit, contemplate... Temenos means sanctuary. We hope that you will enjoy the restorative sanctuary we are working on creating here.
