Come pitch your tent on our horse rescue ranch. Two spots are near our little Western Town, you can even sleep in the jail or inside the general store. Another location is near the horses or in a more secluded area.

We have two spots to park RVs as well.

You can visit with the horses, while enjoying some idyllic beautiful high desert vistas. At night, you can see the city lights from a distance, but it is far enough to really see the stars in the night sky (no light pollution).

Please bring your own chairs. We have a serviced porta-potty with potable water access.

Camp Fire: Because of fire danger, there are no campfires possible.

We have a working gold mine across the street, that can be hiked up to, to a certain point. We have lots of desert trails surrounding us.

Activities: Learn about horses and help at the horse rescue, feeding and watering, giving horses treats.

All proceeds from your camping on our property goes to support the horses at our rescue.

What a neat experience! My kids loved being surrounded by horses and camping in the little old west town on Vera's property. It was windy but luckily we were able to fit our tent into one of the little buildings. It was a good stopping point on our way down from Central CA to Joshua Tree.

The property was exactly as expected-a working horse rescue. My kids enjoyed being able to volunteer with Vera and her workers taking care of the horses!

Vera's place is a peaceful animal lover's paradise. We were welcomed upon arrival, and set up camp near the quaint "western town". We got a tour of the horse rescue property including where to get potable water and the bathroom facilities. We met horses, donkeys, dogs, and a shy barn cat. We slept well under an incredible blanket of stars and Vera was an amazing host!

We settled into a nice flat spot next to the "jail"
