No road access to the camp sites. Tent camping only. No RV spaces available.

The Desert Tower is a 93 acre property in the midst of a great field of boulders on a hillside cliff overlooking California's Imperial Valley. One can camp anywhere in the rocks you like...there are tons of hidden gems out there with some great views. There is a sandy area in front of the tower that is very nice and close to the bathrooms -- Enjoy the views and the nighttime stars!

The place is super cool!! Everyone on the land is super nice and so cool! If you go be sure to talk it up with the people living there! The stars are absolutely amazing at night and the sweet dogs on the property make the bathroom trips at night less scary. One even came and checked up on us a few times to make sure everything was going well haha. The rocks are super cool to adventure around even have cool carvings on them. Also don’t forget to take some pics at Coyotes flying saucer retrieval! I definitely would come here again and I seriously recommend this little gem of a place. They even have yoga! Thanks Ben!!

This was a really fun place to stay. Between the tower, Boulder Park, and the unique grounds, you won’t be disappointed. Ben and family make you feel at hope whether you are passing through or there for the night.
