A private 30 acres of desert wilderness, bordering thousands of acres of BLM land and the Cleghorn Wilderness area. It offers infinite seclusion, 360 degrees of uninterrupted desert vistas, yet only 20 mins drive from Joshua Tree National Park. This secluded corner in Wonder Valley is perfect to socially distance, stargaze, recharge, or do nothing at all. The nearest neighbors are at least 1/3 mile away. Remote work is also a possibility, as there's ample cellular coverage (your mileage may vary depending on your cellular provider). Only three campsites are offered within the 30 acres, so if you're looking for a chill environment, this is the place!

You can't mention this spot without noting the incredible 360 degree views all round. From dawn til dusk, the sun and the moon track across the sky, exposing a blanket of stars and the mountains beyond.
As far as setup goes - this is super basic for now. A real blank canvas to park up on and drink in the desert surroundings. We built a little campfire to keep warm, and ate dinner outside. The location is super handy for an early start for Joshua Tree National Park.
Be sure to TYPE IN the coordinate directions - do not just follow link to Google Maps as you will get lost. Dave's written directions do take you right to the spot though.
Can't wait to return and experience Dave's future plans for this spot :)

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!

A quiet place to stargaze with quick access to Joshua Tree. Only 15 minutes away from the West Entrance of the Park! Definitely follow the host’s directions, as Google Maps May try to take you a different way.

We had a great time camping at Wonder Valley Ranch. There was seemingly miles of empty desert around us.

I would highly recommend a 4x4 to get there. The dirt roads get increasingly challenging (and fun).

It's exactly what we wanted and we will be back.

Camp we setup. Awesome sunrise.

Such a beautiful and peaceful piece of land! We had a nice little fire and it wasn’t too windy. Great for stargazing, sunsets and sunrises with mountains views surrounding in every direction.

Super remote, clean property in an inspiring desert landscape. Dave was super easy to communicate with and very responsive. Star gazing was amazing even with an half moon. We brought our airstream which was no trouble at all. We will definitely be back!

I came to this site with friends and we returned a month later. It is a nice open spot with beautiful mountain views. It's great for our semi-local getaway.
