We were alone at one of two sites on Timothy’s place. Easy to find if you follow his directions. This is a way to experience the California desert off the main highway in the midst of hills covered with sage, Joshua tree and other cacti. Barebones for boondocking.
If you want to experience Nevada Casino action, the exit off I-15 and the next one West have big ones.

Wonderful spot! Secluded, wild, and with spectacular views. We had the place to ourselves and it was awesome. We will definitely be returning and/or staying at Sandy Valley Ranch—they have yurts, teepees, covered wagons, etc. Timothy was a great host, very responsive, and helpful. Thanks!

It was so quiet and peaceful here! Timothy was a great host, especially since I was not feeling the top of my game. He was very helpful and courteous and asked daily how I was feeling. At least our last night there, I was able to see the amazing night sky. Lol We definitely plan to return to actually snoop around the area

Our trip couldn’t have been more perfect! My friends & I loved Timothy’s land. It was so secluded & beautiful. There is also an amazing ranch across the street & a town up the road. We had such a great time and plan on coming back very soon. Thanks again, Timothy!!

I’ve got a rooftop tent set up — so it’s easy for me to jump in the truck and get away at a moment’s notice.

A short few hours drive from LA you’ll find the beautiful Mojave Desert — and I was lucky enough to get to stay at Roadrunner Camp!

The property is beautifully rustic, with plenty of space and privacy. Perfect for stargazing!

The sites are easy to find and the location was super convenient - I even got to spend some time across the road at Sandy Valley Ranch. After a long day there it was nice to retire to a quite campsite and watch a gorgeous sunset over the mountains.

This place is a gem - Will definitely be coming back soon!
