The Starry Night Skoolie & Campsite offers glamping on our renovated school bus as well as tent camping in the gardens. 100% of all proceeds go directly to planting, watering, and caring for new trees. Our vision is to cultivate this desert land into a sprawling forest garden oasis. We're on our way to becoming a non-profit. You can see our progress report here: https://www.canva.com/design/DAFX82a9cdI/vHg5FOGCjiRGEQmAIHc77A/view?utm_content=DAFX82a9cdI We rescue dogs that were abandoned in the area. This means that there will be 2 - 4 dogs with us during your stay. If you are tent camping, they will be near us by the skoolie. If you are on the skoolie, they will be near us tent camping. Thanks for supporting our efforts to make this space a healing sanctuary for all creatures large and small.

Spacious and quiet
Quiet, spacious and private enough. Billimarie was very communicative and helpful. The outdoors were perfect; too cloudy for stars but I have faith that it's a good spot on a clear night. Easy for a 2wd. Peaceful area.

Stargazer's Paradise
Our first time really camping out in the middle of a desert but Billimarie made it perfect. Not only did she come out to welcome us she also made sure we had everything we needed. We camped in our own vehicle but the skoolie looks like a great place to spend a few nights as well. Unfortunately it was crazy windy the night we stayed but my son still had fun exploring the property as much as we could.

Billimarie is a wonderful host, who is accommodating, helpful, and just really friendly. I couldn't experience the campsite due to scheduling conflict, but will definitely check out Skoolie in the near future!

The Starry Night Skoolie
Truly a Starry Night at the Skoolie
My boyfriend and I spent our anniversary weekend at the skoolie and we're so glad to have found this listing because we absolutely loved our time here, albeit too short. Billimarie's hospitality was above and beyond and you can tell how compassionate she is about the skoolie and the land. Everything was so neat and cozy - we wished we could've stayed longer! We took our kitties with us, and they both already felt like home so we highly recommend the skoolie for other cat parents with adventurous felines. We also had the chance to play with puppies they're currently fostering, which was a cute way to end our trip. Lastly, don't forget to look up at the stars. Luckily, we had a clear night sky and were able to look up at the stars. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely plan on coming back in the future. Thanks for making our first Hipcamp experience one to remember!

The Starry Night Skoolie
Our family of 4 (with our 7yo and 3yo) had so much fun sleeping in Billimarie's amazing skoolie - there were so many amazing details and fun touches, like a pink typewriter, a propane stove in the kitchen drawer, and decor that told stories. Billimarie was camping with her mother and daughter on the property and it was wonderful experiencing their generous hospitality, eating together, roasting marshmallows and watching the kids play with each other while Billimarie and her mother cared for their rescue dogs. Billimarie was a responsive and friendly host, and it was incredible to hear her story and vision for the land to reforest it. My son even got to help plant a new tree among the young olives and pines (one even had sprouted a pinecone! In the desert!). Thanks for the memories!

The Starry Night Skoolie
Comfortable Stay With a Great View!
We had a wonderful time at the Skoolie. The instructions Billimarie gave us were very clear and helpful, the atmosphere of the skoolie was amazing, the area was so calm and peaceful, and the view was absolutely breathtaking. The host left us plenty of generators to keep the AC going and keep the inside of the Skoolie very comfortable. I get really uncomfortable easily in the heat, and I felt great the entire time. The view of the stars was unbelievable and we got a nice campfire going in the fire pit. Billimarie was so kind and helpful and we felt so welcome in her space. The vibes inside were really wonderful and we got the couples package and the bed was very comfy. Essentially, all we packed was food and entertainment and the rest was provided for us! I would highly recommend this stay and we look forward to when we can go again!

The Starry Night Skoolie
There were many steps taken to ensure a welcoming and comfortable stay. Highly recommend checking out this hidden gem, will visit again just for the stars. The bus was a cozy and different way to experience the desert with much needed AC. 10/10 will be back
