Our HipCamp Site was delightful beyond expectations.
Our host built /created a camp site that was full of many delightful and unusual touches such as
Solar lights by the tent, a beautiful Victorian chaise lounge under the trees ( so fun!) the site was impeccably clean Including carefully raked grounds.
Decorative tassels served as indicators of low branches-a caution to protect head bumping. The tent provided was spacious and immaculate. The table , outhouse, outdoor shower were all artfully constructed of upcycled materials- many other small charms! He also built a large deck which is perfect for daytime yoga and nighttime star gazing! Beyond the physical amenities—and perhaps more importantly- our host could not have been more welcoming , accommodating and kind than if we’d been at a 5-star resort. If we’d wanted to be totally left alone he would have respected that , but we loved that he checked in with us, morning and evening to make sure we were ok and see if we needed anything. He provided us with extra blankets ( more each night!) , brought us fresh brewed coffee, and kindly directed us ( when we asked) to local hikes, petroglyphs, , cultural sites , local artisan and antique shops , best local cafes.
We had absolutely the best balance of remote, rustic desert getaway with a sense of safety and comfort.
It feels like we have a new second home in the desert.

Farewell to our desert "home"

Spent a fantastic 3 nights at the Star Fort in Pipes Canyon. The site is in the middle of a beautiful desert landscape surrounded by mature Joshua Trees. if you are looking for an authentic desert experience and relaxation, this is a very quiet, private and remote location. Pipes Canyon is part of the Dark Sky Association, so stargazing on the Star Deck is top notch. Things to do nearby: Visit historic Pioneer Town, hike the 6 mi. loop at the Pioneer Town Mountain Preserve, and shop at the local antique shops. I cannot thank Eddie enough for being a consummate host, making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. He provided wool blankets (nights were crisp) and even brought us coffee one morning!

Just like Joshua Tree! Cute tippi, simple toilet and Open air shower - all selfmade by the very simpathic host Eddie! His house is amazing and the Site is very private. Definitly would stay Here again. The Yoga platform is amazing for a sundowner or Sunset yogasession :)

Star Fort is a quiet and stunning place to relax and take in the landscape filled with Joshua Trees. We came here after a day of exploring the trails at Sand to Snow National Monument. The fall weather was perfect with the crisp, cold air and warm sun. Our kids loved playing inside the teepee while we gathered around outside on the chairs and lounger. We especially like the Star Deck where we sat and watched the sunset. I would of love to pitch our tent at this spot had the weather been warmer at night. Instead, we slept in our car / camper. Eddie was a terrific host and he made sure we had everything we needed to have a good time and stay warm. I would recommend his place to anyone who like to sleep under the stars, whether it be inside a tent or car, and look out of the window at night.
