A festive 'old Mexico' theme among our native Joshuas, Junipers and Mesquites. Before the gold miners and cowboy ranching in our area were the Spanish gold seekers working with our local Hualapai Indians. We have fun with this theme and hope you do to. Drive to the site and have access to our nearby bath house with hot water, shower, flush toilet, and sink in and outside.

A festive 'old Mexico' theme among our native Joshuas, Junipers and Mesquites. Before the gold miners and cowboy ranching in our area were the Spanish gold seekers working with our local Hualapai Indians. We have fun with this theme and hope you do to. Drive to the site and have access to our nearby bath house with hot water, shower, flush toilet, and sink in and outside. 

You drive about 23 miles on a county maintained dirt road coming from the Northwest or 17 miles from the Southeast.  We have had Tesla, Prius and Kia Rio cars show up, no problem.

Camp amongst the best variety and most beautiful scenery the high desert of Arizona has to offer including giant Saguaros as well as Joshua & Juniper trees. True peaceful desert tranquility next to hike-able mountains with 100 mile majestic views. 25 miles to Alamo Lake, the quiet more private side, for swimming, tubing, and boating. Lots of fish too, said to be the best bass lake in the state. We are almost surrounded by hundreds of miles of Federal land with lots of hiking, biking, ATV and Jeep off-roading. We have great 2 wheel vehicle accessible sites to visit too.

 Look for gold and silver where the miners of yesterday looked, right here, just short distances around your campsite area. Bring your miners pick, the evidence of their work is everywhere. Your metal detector might also find 50 caliber bullets, shells and belt links left over from B17 door gunner training that went on overhead back in the day—WWII. We've got a few of them to show you! 

 Arizona is open land cattle grazing country and our ranch abuts what was a major watering hole complete with 100 year old ranch fencing where they gathered cattle up for shipping off to the stockyards. This is the real 'cowboy-up' out west still going on. The cows do come by here now and then looking for a drink. The rancher likes this safer area now for cows to birth their babies. Another rare photo op. 

When you come, ask to see our maps to nearby old mines and trails to see totally unique scenic rock formations, petroglyphs, and many other wonderful photo opportunities. Some may require vehicle travel. Here you will find the widest variety of desert flora and fauna anywhere in our American southwest Sonoran desert (two rainy seasons a year). Yes we have lots of those tall Saguaro cactus. 

We are completely off-grid. Propane and solar electricity provide all of our needs like pumping refreshingly clean well water. We are far from the noisy rat-race with an unblemished night sky. We have four levels of camping available. Level one: raw ground, a fire ring, one armload of firewood, a solar lantern and a composting toilet. Level two: all previous level items plus your tent on a 10'x16' deck.  Level three: adds our, 10'x10'x7' at peak tent, as shown, on a deck. An outside table and two chairs. Level four (this Stagecoach Clamping level): All previously mentioned items plus a stand-up charcoal BBQ with some cooking tools, a rigid 6” queen mattress on a wooden base, bedding, end tables, suspended fully carpeted deck. Cell service is good.  Wi-Fi is available next to the ranch house.

We provide a centrally located drinking water and electrical charging, station. A private bath house with hot shower, sink and flush toilet.  Gas and restaurants are 17 miles east from us at U.S. Route 93 over a County maintained dirt road, Chicken Springs Rd. to Wikieup. Pets allowed.

Beautiful property in a great location. Hosts definitely did a great job of setting things up with the campers in mind - good amount of space between other sites, fire pit, picnic table, clean bath house, etc. We were able to take our Jeep on multiple different trails (that are connected to the property itself) and spend a couple days exploring Alamo Lake. Would definitely come back.

I loved glamping at Hacienda Haven! Everything was just as described. So peaceful out there, with a beautiful drive & campsite, dark sky for star-gazing, nice fire pit, and a comfy bed. My little dog loved exploring too!

This was our second time staying at a Wits End glamping site and it was just as wonderful as the first. Last time we stayed at a different campsite than this time and actually had the whole place to ourselves (it was Thanksgiving week). This time, I noticed that Chuck and JoAnn added a third glamping site to their property, and all three sites were occupied with guests. Chuck and JoAnn did a fantastic job putting enough distance and vegetation (at least 100 meters or more) between each of the sites that it still felt mostly private, and it seems that each of the tent openings face a different direction for added privacy. I live in Las Vegas and it's about a 2.5-hour drive to get to the property, with the last 25 miles or so on a dirt road leading to the expansive and isolated property. Nothing but enormous Joshua Trees, many varieties of cacti including saguaro and prickly pear, and endless views all around. The dirt road helps get in the right mindset to fully disconnect upon arrival. The hosts informed me that they get Verizon and AT&T service at their property, but I have T-Mobile and lose service completely early into the dirt road, which I prefer because it allows me to disconnect better than if I had cell service. The hosts do provide access to wi-fi near the house if needed. The beds are really comfortable, and it's amazing to have a little bit of luxury while completely off grid, including a bath house with hot water and electrical outlets. Another amazing feature is that there is no light pollution at all. My first visit was on a clear night with a full moon, which was beautiful, but this time around we visited on a new moon night, and the sky and stars were the most amazing I've ever seen. I can't wait to come back for more than one night next time. Looking forward to my next visit and thanks to Chuck and JoAnn for providing such a special place.
