Located in Sunny Southern California, this desert escape is filled with cool pieces of history and entertainment, fun for the whole family. A 162 Acre piece of private property lays home to a private campground, welcoming campers looking to drop off the grid, camp, hike and even take a dip in some watering holes. As a true oasis we have 2 swimming holes nestled into a beautiful valley filled with hiking, plenty of shade and a great view waiting at the top of any ridge. A relaxed atmosphere around this RURAL campground, a building sense of community throughout the campground, regularly held pot lucks and group campfires sharing in the beauty of the Southern California Desert.
We have two bathrooms, and two communal areas (fire pits, sinks, bbqs) that are shared by all of our guests. We are currently only opening half of our sties to keep the number of people in these communal areas lower. Our bathrooms will be cleaned at least twice a day but we encourage any of our potential guests to be safe and respect fellow campers while visiting!

Great space. Funky with lots of character. Would definitely stay again. Quintessential dessert property with broken down vehicles and never to be completed projects from decades gone by. An oasis with ponds and palms
Samuel has a very nice set up there. Very quiet at the end of a Sandy road. Warm shower flushing toilet nice sink very well set up. Lots of private areas for camping I highly recommend his spot.
Little tough to find in the dark but that’s the price you pay for having such a private campsite. Site 4 was great and was situated with some trees surrounding an area for your tent and your car which was nice. Didn’t have cell signal with T-Mobile even though I thought I would based on the coverage map, so just a heads up there.
Lovely desert "oasis"
My partner and I had a wonderful time at Auntie Berts Farm. The land is beautiful. The hosts are friendly and generous. The location is a quick drive to Joshua Tree NP and just outside Yucca Valley if you need provisions. We brought our teardrop and were able to tuck away in a little grove of trees for shade and privacy. I only wish we could have stayed one more night.
This place is truly a gem. Sam and his father Rob are ultra hospitable. It was quiet, clean, and easy to access. The bathroom was a huge plus - super clean and modern. Relatively close to Joshua Tree where we drove for a day - only took 30-40 minutes. Awesome places to hike and walk around and the ponds were beautiful! Will definitely be back.
Beautiful campground just a few minutes off the main road yet far enough from all the light pollution where you can enjoy the stars. Make sure to contact the owner prior to arrival as reception can be spotty and navigating to your camp site can be a bit confusing. Samuel was really friendly & chill - left us alone for the most part but was available if we needed anything. Visited during a slower season so we had the campground mostly to ourselves. Loved swimming in the fresh water ponds and watching shooting stars from the treehouse. The amenities like the communal sink, fire pits, bathrooms, and showers are well kept which made a for a convenient, comfortable stay. Highly recommend this site and will definitely book again!
