Nice and secluded in a very beautiful spot in wonder valley. Easy to get to with great host directions. Definitely follow Dave’s instructions and not GPS, and be aware of speed down the dirt roads once you hit the single track part (definitely some loose sand parts that we got through no problem). Dave was easy to communicate with, def recommend!
Only got lost once on the way to this one. The coordinates just take you a bit farther then needed so I would recommend looking on your map for Wilson road before going all the way down Amboy. There are three sites there. You should be fine with 2 wheel drive as long as you don’t go too far off the site/road type area. There are not many spots of soft/loose sand. It can be windy depending on conditions. Nice secluded spot. Stars where really pretty and fire was easy enough to start. Solid stay! Would recommend.
This property was perfect for a group camp with people coming from all different areas. It was so easy for us to meet up here and there was plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the views. Exactly as advertised and easy, clear communication!
Wow. So stunning! It's hard to find privacy like that with no one around for miles. Once we set up camp we had the place to ourselves and got to enjoy amazing sunsets and night skies. It is the desert, so bring plenty of water (though gas, etc. is within a 30 min. drive). The wind can certainly pick up at times, but we managed well with our tent. That said the site might be more amenable to a sleeping camper/van only because you don't know when you'll be dealing with high winds. Either way, highly recommended!
Wonder Valley Ranch blew my expectations out of the water. Just the process of finding the site was an adventure, and I loved every minute of it. The site is completely surrounded by miles of wilderness, open space, and sweeping mountain views. The seclusion and peace were amazing, and it offered us some of the best stargazing I have done in a while! Dave was an excellent host and easy to get in touch with whenever I had any questions. I highly recommend this spot to anyone who wants to disconnect and enjoy some good old fashioned camping - I will definitely be coming back!
