Welcome to DragonflyHill Desert Farm & Wildlife Habitat where you can experience desert magic, starry skies, and natural mineral water. Remote enough for a quiet retreat yet easy to get to and only a short drive to amenities and outdoor adventures! Please read the entire listing description, including our rules and our Coronavirus (COVID-19)  protocols, to assure we’re the right space for you. We welcome guests new to Hipcamp but please take the time to familiarize yourself with the Hip camp platform. Hip camp travel is very different from public campgrounds.  At DragonflyHill Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat you will be guests in our home. Please have your profile completed with full verification and payment method with Hip camp. Message us via the Hip camp platform with an introductory inquiry and communicate with us throughout your trip planning process from reservation to departure. We are one mile down a well maintained and navigable dirt road,  20 minutes to Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs and Palm Desert. We're near the Cabazon outlets, 2 hours to Los Angeles, Disneyland, beaches. There are local wildlife preserves, hiking and outdoor activities. We are half an hour to Joshua Tree and Coachella.  We truly are in the middle of nowhere and the center of everything. For folks traveling in winter, we’re considerably warmer than Joshua Tree and the High Desert. Immediate neighbors are small farmers and ranchers. Our land is 100 feet wide by an eighth of a mile deep in a residential neighborhood with lots 2.5-5 acres.  We can see and hear our neighbors.  Guests wanting a totally isolated experience may want a different listing.

DragonflyHill Collective is a community of artisans, activists, craftspeople and farmers, working together to cultivate community, develop methodologies for living and working together in ever increasing paradigms of social justice and sustainability. Some members of the Dragonfly Team live on the premises at all times and will be here for the duration of your stay. The rest of the team are community members. All Team members work at DragonflyHill Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat in different capacities, in cooperation and collaboration with each other. There are also community events at the farm, including urban farming though many activities, including our legendary breakfasts are on hold during the pandemic. All activities are outdoors and social distancing and mask wearing is required.  We love to hear about your travels and share our knowledge of our community and Southern California with our guests. 

DragonflyHill is a safe and sober space that is disability and LGBTQ affirmative, anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-imperialist and de-colonialist, because anything else is just a bandaid. Core values of our work include attention to detail, fine craftwork and cultivating community. 

Camp in your own tent, RV or camper  under the starlit desert sky on our beautiful desert farm and wildlife habitat.  We have listed 6 camping spaces available on Hip camp but have much more room than that. There are no assigned spaces in our listing on the Hip camp platform.  In this way we can tailor your location to your needs. (Do you want to be near bathrooms or away from other  campers?  Do you want to be near the  main house?  What type of space does your trailer need?, etc).  Some spaces have fire pits. We can provide your RV/camper with water but currently do not have waste disposal or electric hook ups; we are working on that. For an additional fee, pets are allowed at campsites. We welcome and encourage guests with service and support animals to stay with us.  (See rules). All animals must have current vaccination records. 

Prices are firm and vary by day and season. We do not offer discounts beyond what is stated in the price of the listing, on the indicated date, with the exception of online promotions on our other sites. Home sharing is labor intensive and all members of the Dragonfly Team work very hard. We pay fair wages and provide excellent guest service, which we can't do for a lower price. Please respect the thought and labor we bring to this space, and its value to us and our community. We doubt you'll find anything similar for what we are charging.Additional fees for campers:  Extra person fee (after 2 people) $8/per night Extra vehicle (more than 1 vehicle) $10/per night Pet fee $10 per pet/per night. Laundry: $5 a load, wash and dry. $10 a load, wash, dry and fold. Firewood for campsites: $20 a cartful.

DragonflyHill Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat is an emerging space with new features changing regularly. Currently we have habitat viewing areas, an herb garden, an orchard and palm trees. As a farm, we may be a bit more rustic than your typical farm to allow for shelter for local wildlife. Plant varieties, wildlife and presentation may vary by season. Our farm specializes in herbs, fruit trees, desert and native plants,  and edible flowers. We also grow some sprouts and micro greens indoors. We cultivate community and share what we grow with our neighbors and our guests. 

Guests have shared access to the outdoor kitchen and BBQ area, the orchards, gardens, patios, and grounds of the Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat, and (for safety reasons)  limited access to the pool pond and spa (see all rules). Guests must use designated bathrooms for cleaning and bathroom needs. Wildlife is to be respected and unimpeded at all times. Guests may not go into private areas including other guest and residential spaces, work areas and storage areas, which are clearly marked. The pool pond is filled with local mineral water from our own well. The pool pond is cleaned professionally twice a week & is chlorinated. The pool pond  is not cleaned daily and is shared with wildlife. Debris from high winds and wildlife may contribute to the pool pond environment. Currently neither the pool pond nor the spa is heated. We are looking into passive solar heating options that are affordable and sustainable. See our rules for our policies specific to the use of the pool pond area. Local spas and resorts are available for day use and access to their pools and ponds for as little as $10 a day ($5 seniors). 

We can provide laundry service and space for events and entertaining for a small fee. We speak: English and Spanish. We can communicate somewhat in French, Italian and Portuguese.

Disability Access: Guests with disabilities are encouraged to discuss their particular needs with us prior to arrival to assure full accommodations, comfort & safety.  Our land is flat with a gentle slope, accessible to most wheelchair users. Most of our team members have disabilities and are disability & social justice activists. We are constantly making improvements in our disability access.  We have a wheelchair accessible portable bathroom and outdoor shower. Parking, patios, gardens, the natural mineral water filled pool pond area are all wheelchair accessible.   We use scent free products for the most part & can provide guests with a list of products. If you are sensitive to certain products, with enough notice we can halt the use of some of those products in anticipation of your arrival.  The bathrooms have hand-held shower heads & we can provide a shower chair.  We are disability affirmative and appreciate  neurological diversity. 

Communication is essential for us to provide guests with the best experience at DragonflyHill.  Guests need to check their messages on the Hip camp platform inbox. DragonflyHill usually responds to guest inquiries within an hour, and rarely more than 3 hours.

    Hosting During the Current Pandemic Coronavirus (COVID-19) Clean

    We’ve always been super clean at DragonflyHill, and we've made a point of developing cleaning protocols that are safe for the people cleaning and living n the space.  We were already performing most of the requirements of airbnb’s new protocol either due to the pandemic or preceding it.

    To assure a safe space for us, when we clean your space, and for guests/lodgers when you stay with us, we follow and exceed the Hip camp cleaning protocols. 

    Changes in Hospitality

    In the past we have offered guests/lodgers lavish breakfasts and hands on hosting, while still respecting guests’ desire for privacy and solitude. We have provided as many amenities as possible and 2 night minimum stays.  With the new AIRBNB cleaning protocol which takes at least 3 days to execute, requiring us to deep clean every detail of a listing, including every plate, glass, pot, pan, spatula, cabinet and shelf,  we have made the following changes in what we can and do provide.

    Additional Amenities:

    *Cleaning and disinfecting supplies.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Austerity

    We can no longer provide the same quantities of some amenities we provided in the past and currently we adhere to and exceed the new Hip camp enhanced cleaning protocol

    • For guests/lodgers staying at our Desert Farm location, the Main House is no longer available to guests, for guest use. Guests/lodgers may use the grounds and other facilities, in accordance with safe distancing protocols. All listings that include rooms in our home are currently not being offered for lodging.
    • Camping guests/lodgers may stay for a minimum of 2 nights. Common areas will be cleaned and sanitized regularly and guests/lodgers may use provided cleaning and sanitation supplies.

    For Guests/lodgers Who Require a Fragrance Free Space

    We are using increased quantities of Dawn dish soap, alcohol and bleach, which do not adhere to our fragrance free policy (alcohol and bleach have their own odor, we do not use products with added perfumes, oils or fragrances). Guests/lodgers who require a fragrance free environment need to give us two weeks notice. We will work with you around which products may be problematic for you. If we cannot use alcohol and bleach, we may not be able to provide a disinfected environment. Additionally, we have found that despite extreme efforts on our part, some sensitive guests/lodgers still have allergic reactions to something in the environment. We cannot guarantee a reaction free experience. Additionally we have no control over materials used and applied by others in our ecosystem and neighborhood.

    It was a blissful experience. We stayed one night and that was not enough. I am booking 4 more nights for next week and possibly more over the next 3 weeks we are in and around the desert. The breakfast was over the top fabulous.
    The team is a special group of wonderful people who are sweet, intelligent, and fun to converse with. We didn’t want to leave.
    I’ll let you know how next week goes but I’m sure it will continue to be my favorite campsite of all time.

    The best campground in the desert

    I had to come back for 4 more nights!!! Most of the campgrounds I found in the desert were wide open with tumbleweeds and scrub brush. Dragonfly Hill is protected with trees that surround the property. It provides a nice wind break and privacy with plants, and trees that add so much more than barren sand. The team at Dragonfly Hill continue to work hard to make their new campground unique in the desert. New firepits have been added which makes camping outdoors at night the best.
    I travel alone a lot and the protection Dragonfly offers is a big relief. I will return again and again and am excited to see what they do next.
    The team is wonderful. I am going to miss those big family breakfasts and their smiling faces for sure.
    Thank you Team!!!!!!!!!
    You are the best!!!!!!!!!

    The hosts were fantastic and welcoming. I couldn't get a sense of the "campsites" from the pictures but there were quite a few good and comfy options when we arrived. The only MINI-complaint I have is that even though it is indeed in the "middle of nowhere", there are neighbors surrounding the area and their dogs and roosters were not adhering to human sleep schedules : ) Also, the 10 freeway is not too close, but close enough to hear the highway drone at night and in the morning. If that doesn't bother you then you will absolutely love it here. Even with my mini-complaint I would def come back.

    It was a great rustic spot to camp for a couple of nights. The hosts were very friendly and the breakfast delicious!
    Was thrilled to be able to have a hot shower too!

    I can’t stay away. I love coming back and seeing my hosts. I was very touched how happy they were to see me again. They are the best people you could have as a host. They continue to work on the grounds so improvements are on going. Breakfast is always great as is the company.
    Thank you all for being a home away from home.
