I loved staying here, the sunrise was truly incredible and it was great to have a hike just a few steps away from my camp. The hosts are super friendly and have adorable dogs as well!

We were the first guests at Desert Oasis. Upon arrival, Michael and Ian invited us into their home for a beer and a shot! There are several available campsites, all beautiful and secluded in mountain valleys. We had to leave early the next morning, but there are even hikes one could do directly from the campsite. Highly recommend.

I wanted off the grid without a bunch of other campers and this was perfect. At first a little confusing to find, but once we figured it out it was a breeze. Ian and Michael were fantastic and very accommodating. We are looking forward to our visit back! Thanks so much for the hospitality!!

Sadly we didn’t get a chance to take to sunset pictures. But the sunrise was still absolutely lovely! Desert Oasis Camping

Beautiful landscape. Great piece of property up against the national monument. Refreshingly secluded.
