Desert Camping in the Middle of No-Where.! There is literally nothing but wild desert for miles in every direction! Lots of open space! Open Sky! Places to go hiking. Lizards, foxes, and birds. It is less than a 10 mile drive to the nearest stores and restaurants. There are a few miles of dirt road driving but all roads are well maintained and safe for all vehicle types.

Desert Camping in the Middle of No-Where.! There is literally nothing but wild desert for miles in every direction! Lots of open space! Open Sky! Places to go hiking. Lizards, foxes, and birds. It is less than a 10 mile drive to the nearest stores and restaurants. There are a few miles of dirt road driving but all roads are well maintained and safe for all vehicle types.

The sunsets are beautiful here and there are lots of nearby areas where shooting is allowed and other desert activities. We can give you advice if you want to go rock hunting, shooting, picture taking, hiking and more. Let us know your ideas for larger groups.

We are also a great area for viewing meteor showers and astrological events as we have very little light pollution because of our distance from civilization.

We are building the campground up and there is currently a gathering area that large groups can use but it is still under development. There is also a nonprofit here doing off-grid research and a fenced in area for that which we are still working on. Please let us know if you want the tour.

Come and check us out and help us grow. We will be progressing quickly!

Loved the place! Easy access, but far enough from freeways to not be bothered by them. Would definitely return, and give myself more time to go rock exploring with the hosts.

Great private spot. Feels like you’re nowhere near anything and it’s great.

This place has amazing mountain views and beautiful sunsets. Matt is super nice and it's easy to find and get to. The area is full of awesome rocks in shades of green, blue and purple. Perfect for DIY campers or anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and experience some peaceful desert views.

Great spot. Far enough from everything, yet pretty easy to reach. Friendly hosts. Campsites sparse enough from each other.

The privacy that the property provided was perfect! Unfortunately my group wasn't able to stay for the full reservation due to the weather, but I would absolutely stay at the residence again if given the opportunity! Matthew was so helpful with all of our questions and he even helped us out with directions when we got a little lost. Definitely would recommend staying here!

Very isolated as you would expect from a campground out in the desert. Felt safe and relaxed my entire stay. Host's are accommodating and will definitely go again sometime.

Nightjar oasis was awesome! The site exceeded our expectations. The location is definitely remote but not too far from civilization. Matthew our camp host was more than welcoming and helpful. Great place to "unplug" and find some quiet time.
