Lovelight Ranch is our 5-acre hippie paradise, centrally located in the Coachella Valley. We are near the amazing 1000 Palms Oasis and Coachella Valley Preserve for great day hikes and wildlife viewing, and also near the splendors of Joshua Tree and the high desert. We are within a half hours drive of Palm Springs, recently voted the hippest mid-sized city in the country and Coachella, home of the Coachella and StageCoach Festivals. We are also very near Sam's Hot Water Spa, a chemical free hot springs soaking experience which is the perfect ending to a day of hiking, climbing or just sight-seeing.

Mikey is the perfect host and Lovelight is an amazing place to stay. Most of the campgrounds, B&Bs and hotels hiked up their prices for festival season, so the price for our site was astounding. The site is relaxing, with plenty of places to relax and enjoy some much needed post and pre-festival solitude. We were grateful to have access to a fully equipped outdoor kitchen and refrigerator (I wasn't looking forward to buying bags of ice during my 90+ degree stay). We had a great group of campers who were also attending Stagecoach, but our favorite site-mates were the campground dogs. Dogs make everything better.

Amazing area! Ended up camping in my car because of how windy it was during my stay but Mikey and JoAnne made sure I was parked in a spot that would be perfect and ensure my car wouldn’t sink in the sand. The dogs were so friendly and would often greet me when I came back for the night. Perfect spot for Coachella festival weekend!

Hosts Mikey & Joanne have a fabulous property for tent/car camping! Great amenities include an outdoor kitchen fully stocked including a microwave, flush toilet/outside shower & access to refrigerator/freezer!!!! Lots of fun outdoor art work, gorgeous cactus gardens and an above ground refreshing pool. Bonus are the 4 adorable dogs that are just so lovable. A wonderful safe environment to enjoy. A gem in the Desert 🌵 Am so glad to have met you both~Susan

Short welcoming and friendly hosts. I give it a maybe because it is definitely not quiet as described. You can’t sleep past 6AM.

Loved the little nooks and cranny’s hidden throughout the grounds. The Buddha lounge was my fave. All the pups in the property were absolute angles. Mikey was super cool, and I’d absolutely come back. Make sure to bring earplugs, as the roosters and goats next door were VERY loud, and clips for the shower curtains, as they whip around like crazy.
It’s a magical spot, and I loved it so so so much.

They have a great property! I used the outdoor kitchen, pool, and outdoor shower. Great amenities to rely on while camping simply. We enjoyed a drum circle together which was fun and basically a loose form improv. I did, however, not receive the bundle of firewood I had pre-purchased with my booking. I arrived when it was very windy and hadn’t mentioned it upon check in. The hosts were focusing on their musicians scheduled for the night so I went without a fire, which wasn’t a big deal. I did pay for it though…

Everything was set-up perfectly here. Our hosts were in regular communication about arrival times, camp site setup and any questions we had. Upon arrival, they were friendly and welcoming. The layout of the property was clearly done with care, including the restroom and shared outdoor kitchen space. I'd highly recommend Mikey both as a host and for the site itself!
