Excellent secluded campsite, not too far out of town, only thing to be careful of is lots of broken glass around the concrete pad.

I loved the site. It was very private and the stars were incredible. The road in is unpaved but I managed it fine in my Honda Fit .

No matter how you get there, you will pass windy, winding, canyons on your way to Bare Bones Camp at Copper Mountain. Just a little over two hours away from LA, we made in just in time to catch sunset greet us in the desert. We had a useful concrete landing space to set up our camp for the night and our SUV was useful dealing with the sandy desert roads.

As the sky turned from splashes of pink and orange to different hues of blue, we pulled out our camping tables and began to pour the wine. We finally made it.

The desert was quiet and welcoming. We could feel the pace of the city leave us completely, and we set up our speakers to set the vibe of the evening.

The camp stove was set up, and we had dinner cooking. The stars slowly started to poke through as the sky turned darker before our eyes. The cool desert air made us find our warmer layers and as we set up the rest of the camp, the tent started to look more and more inviting. Music played, drinks were drunk and the desert night did its thing. Bare Bone camp, wasn't so bare. What started as an empty canvas ended as peaceful inspiration that permeated the night.

The coolness crept, and we slipped into our tent to rest for the next day. Perhaps it was the desert air, or perhaps it was setting up our tent on the most level platform, but we had the best sleep. Perhaps it was the whole experience.

In the morning, the air was still cool but warming up as the sun rose above our tent. We in admiration of the morning sun, the desert glow, and coyotes howling at dawn. We had woken up wild and well-rested.

The concrete platform was an excellent base, close to trails and large boulders. We had a relaxed morning cooking breakfast sandwiches before the desert sun warmed up the land.

All in all, I can say that I do recommend and I look forward to being back. Bare Bones Camp is the perfect place for a quick getaway or for a base camp set up for more wilderness adventures along the way.

Pouring some wine to start our evening. Our DIY kitchen setup.Barebones camping doesn't mean you can't get fancy as well. Just bring your twinkly lights and bluetooth speaker to complete the setup :)Rolled in and set up our dinner table.

Site is removed from the road and pretty quiet. Some nearby properties, but they seem empty/in construction. Nice sunsets and sunrises, but lots of broken glass.

Hi Ma’ayan, we’re sorry you had a less than desirable experience. Unfortunately the pad you landed at was a neighboring property, and not ours.. Please bear with us as we just listed this property and haven’t placed any markers out there yet. We’d be happy to comp you another stay if you’re interested in giving second chances. Let us know!

I really enjoyed my stay at the Bare Bones campsite. The views were beautiful and it was very private! It felt a little unsafe because there was absolutely no one around but that’s no fault to the host. There was quite a bit of glass around the campsite and near the concrete pads which we spent some time trying to avoid but we found a good spot in the end. The host was also very kind and answered my questions through text quickly and in great detail!
