Beautiful spot to watch sunrises and sunsets. Great for star gazing too. Bar is located in a small quiet town named Crystal, NV.  Closest town for gas and food is Pahrump which is about 20 minutes away. My place is perfect if you want to get away from the city for a little bit. Or if you are traveling the country in your RV, trailer or tent! My place is very unique if you are looking for a different place to stay other than a RV park. Good vibes only. :) Learn more about this land: I am located one hour away from Death Valley National Park and twenty minutes to Ash Meadows Wildlife Refuge and Devil's Hole. And an hour to Las Vegas and Pahrump about twenty minutes away.  Google maps and GPS will sometimes get you lost. Please message me for better directions after booking.

Kathy is a great host. sunsets were beautiful. evenings were pleasant with cool breezes blowing. When she finishes her renovations the saloon will add greatly to the southwest charm.

The saloon itself was half burned to the ground and there was this abandoned trailerpark in the back, it felt very unsafe to me, i ended up staying the night somewhere else... Maybe it was nothing and i'm just paranoid. Anyways not a place where I'd want to stay the night in my tent. There were both water and electricity though, so that works out and the desert sunset looks very cool!

I liked the quiet and seclusion. Campgrounds can be so noisy and "busy". I ended up leaving earlier than expected since it was so hot and difficult to keep the travel trailer and my furbabies cool. We will go back in cooler weather.

We were pretty amused to be camping in what felt like a ghost town... The only signs off life were from the RV park two blocks over. The saloon was either closed for the season (really, July is not a great time of year to be camping in the desert southwest) or has not yet recovered from the fire.

Cool little spot in the middle of nowhere. Owners seemed nice but we were beat from the heat and didn’t hang out, though we were offered a cold beer. Sites 2 and 3 are right on top of each other so if someone else was camping there would have been no privacy. You are in a gravel parking lot behind the old saloon.

Kathy’s spot was perfect! Right between Death Valley and Las Vegas you get the best of both worlds. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Having full hookups were perfect in the Nevada heat. Absolutely will stay again!
