I still catch myself daydreaming of the time spent at Elliot’s Sky Ranch. Steve, thank you for a memorable experience. What you have going on is such a great thing!

It was my first time visiting the desert. My friend and I wanted to stay in Joshua Tree, but all the campsites were booked. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND JUST SKIP CAMPING AT JOSHUA TREE! Elliot’s Sky Ranch has all the amenities you need when camping in the desert. Bathrooms are kept extremely clean, fresh water, showers, a well kept property, an extremely hospitable host and more!

Let me tell you, after a long, several hour hike in Joshua Tree, it was so refreshing to take a shower outside and watch the sunset. Later followed by some good conversations around the fire pit with with good company.

There definitely is something magical about being in the desert. Elliot’s Sky Ranch has the comforts and security of home, but gives you enough room to breathe if that makes sense? Whenever I’m visiting the area or passing through, Elliot’s Sky Ranch is where I’ll be staying. Thank you again Steve!!

It was such a pleasure to stay at Elliot’s Sky Ranch! The 360 degree is stunning and the amenities at each site (water, electricity, picnic table) are touches you don’t find at most sites. Steve is a knowledgeable and welcoming host. He has put care and thought into the common areas and the restrooms. Watching the sun set from the observation deck is an awe inspiring experience.

Staying at Steve's campsite was such a great experience! He was an exceptional and kind host. You can tell he put a lot of work into his place and it compliments the location wonderfully. We also had a dog with us who ended up loving Steve (Elvis says hi!) and had a great time exploring the property. All the amenities (bathrooms, grill, water and power accessibility) are all fully functional and well maintained. We can't wait to come back :)

Spacious, peaceful and CLEAN! Great place to enjoy the desert and all the scenery it has to offer. Accommodations were made for our group (vehicle specific) and to keep us together. Just make sure to SHUT IT DOWN BY 10:00pm!!!! Haha. We had a fantastic time and WILL visit again and again.

It’s beautiful here! At night and during the day! I love the running water and a great lublic area with the firepit and the bar. We have an electric car and it was great to be able to plug in and charge. Steve was also very accomodating as we couldn’t get there until after 8.
