The desert oasis of China Ranch is a unique spot in the Mojave desert near Death Valley National Park. There is one dry campsite available to Hip Campers located at the entrance of the Amargosa River Trail in the parking lot near the Date Farm Gift Shop. The date farm is in operation year round so don't be surprised if you see someone driving a tractor around! Hip Campers can expect a dry camp site next to Willow Creek with access to many hiking trails. Pit toilet and picnic tables nearby, no cell service, or internet, China Ranch offers the rare chance to actually get away from it all and experience the desert wildlife, lush vegetation, and a chance to gaze at the stars or rare birds. Close to the town of Tecopa Hot Springs, there are a few restaurants and of course hot spring options 7 miles up the hill as-well-as easy access to Death Valley National Park.

    A true desert oasis! We enjoyed camping on this working farm. Our hosts were amazing and very kind. We loved the date smoothies, date bread, and date cappuccinos at the cafe. There is also an excellent gift shop with a wide selection of art and minerals. The camp site sits next to the trailhead giving fantastic access to the Amargosa River Valley. Do bring lots of water when hiking! There are many wonders to explore such as the majestic slot canyon and historic abandoned railroad. This is a beautiful spot and would recommend to the desert adventurer!
