Family, group, solo and pet-friendly tent camping on your choice of platforms, ground camps, or in a tiny cabin - on 5 acres of off-grid, rural private land, at the base of Copper Mountain, under a billion stars. Enjoy camping, hiking, bouldering, stargazing, relaxing in a spacious yet private, beautiful surrounding. Contact me for pricing for all-camp booking (limit 32 people), production, photo shoots. Sorry, no drones, no loud parties or music after 11pm - my neighbors get upset. Quiet time is 11pm at camp and you can hang out up the mountain at the big firepit as long as you want.

The native plants, flowers, wildlife and kangaroo mice at night add to the charm, and there are no mosquitos. The fallen branches of the creosote bushes make perfect kindling for your firepit. Be sure to look under your vehicle so you don't drive over any chuckwallas enjoying the shade.
IMPORTANT: Follow my directions pin which I send the morning of your arrival, or you'll end up lost and stuck in a sandtrap on the other side of the mountain.
Again, bring lights and drinking water and warmth for chilly desert nights.
All sites are clean, well-maintained, have incredible views and star gazing and a feeling of serenity as you enjoy the beauty of nature.
