Ryan’s got a great thing going and it just keeps getting better. This is the second time I’ve stayed there and it’s so fun to see how his vision of the place is evolving. You pick - hold your breath at midnight to see if you get a campground in or near the park where your neighbor is ten feet away from you, or book a spot here and have all the space you need!
💯 💫 🌵 ⛺️
Ryan's property was the perfect place to ring in the New Year with friends! The accommodation and hospitality was above and beyond- really nice restrooms, a wood powered sauna, loaner tent stakes (thanks Ryan!), and a truly beautiful ambiance. The campsite alone was the perfect blend of camping and glamping.
The location is perfect, as it's so close to town and the park entrance, yet feels totally remote when you're there. Loved stargazing and hearing the coyotes late at night.
We are so looking forward to staying here again in the summer!
Great glamping, little privacy
All in all - good spot for our 1 night camping trip with friends. We enjoyed the firepit and cute lights across the compound. However there is not much privacy as you are very much in the company of other guests and the price is a little high for what amenities they promise (room service, bathroom running out of supplies). I feel like it's a good spot to come if you want more of a glamp experience with provided water, toilets, shade, chairs, firepit. But if you want to feel very secluded this is not the space for you.
We opted for a regular campsite which came with a private overhang structure great for shade, 2 chairs, and fire pits. There are subtle ground lights everywhere at night which really gives a nice feel to the place, and makes the place feel really elevated. We could go straight to the campground w/o checkin, and directions were easy to access.
Our campsite was directly facing a yurt's entrance, so that was awkward with the spacing - we felt like they could hear everything we were saying. Not great privacy in that aspect, but also this is a place where a lot of big groups come so we didn't feel ALL that bad :)
The compound is small, so if you were wanting to venture around the campground, there's not a lot of space to go... you have to leave the gated area but you are right next to the road, so does not feel secluded enough like you are in a true desert escape. Cool to see the tiny homes though and the event space looks lovely!
"room service" sounded ideal, but we never got any response when we texted our host for firewood or coffee in the morning... so I would just not rely on getting room service items. bring everything you need!
Bathrooms were great - portable trailer style, but there are only 2 toilets for the whole campground, and they didn't come to clean it or replenish TP / paper towels during our time there. For the price you pay you'd think...
Lastly, there are DESERT MICE!! Just to note if you are sleeping on the ground like we were (no worries if you're in a tent, just make sure you zip up!) They're kinda cute, not like city mice, but beware. Gated compound was great because my dog had a blast chasing them all night. Totally harmless but thought I should mention that as it took me by surprise!
Lastly.. they say there is potable water. I'm sure there is. But you have to go find it lol. There are some spigots in the ground (not close to your campsite) and I had to get it from a hose that was servicing the pool hahah... just bring your own water!!
Desert camping oasis
Enjoyed my 1 night stay a ton and can’t wait to return! I camped at site #2 with my dog and found it to be the perfect place to stay from Joshua Tree National Park. The outdoor shower and property is wonderful and is such a beautiful oasis.
Super cute and very Instagram worthy. We stayed at camp site 2, which was the farthest site from the bathroom. We didn’t really have access to the pool or sauna, which was a bummer, but we didn’t stay around the site during the daytime much. It is very quiet and the sound carries so you will hear your neighbors staying in the yurts or other campsites. There was also music playing all night from somewhere I’m assuming was outside the property. It would’ve been nice for there to be another bathroom closer to us and/or for the bathrooms to be kept up with a bit more since there were a lot of people staying on the property at the same time and toilet paper ran out a few times. No area to dump your trash, need to pack it out. Water from the hose definitely tastes like the hose. Hosts were responsive once alerted of things that needed to be attended to.
