Camping Amongst the UFOs
Loved staying the night at Bruce's Hipcamp Alien Acres location. It was a unique stop on my Arizona road trip and the perfect jumping off point to go to Petrified Forest the next morning. Bruce was extremely friendly and his directions to the property were extremely helpful (GPS will take you an incorrect route so definitely follow what Bruce tells you instead). It was easy to find in the dark especially with all the lights. The alien and UFO decorations were a nice addition - gave it a fun, quirky vibe! Also liked that Bruce offered an alien toy as a welcome gift and even let me take a piece of petrified wood from his property! Also, shout-out to Bruce for giving me to the tip to check out the Mongollan Rim after Petrified Forest - it was a great last minute addition to my road trip.

Great Crash Pad... haha
Wow, what an experience. We arrived after dark, which may have made the place easier to find. Bruce is a great host and gave useful directions from the highway and showed us around when we gotthere. We have a jeep and had no problems, through a lower car might on the approach roads.
Its worth it just to see Bruce's always evolving alien display, but better when you get to talk to him about his creation and the surrounding area.

Glad we found this!
Bruce was an absolute gem. His hospitality was top notch. His directions are spot on if you listen to exactly what he says. The stars were the best we saw our whole trip through dark sky country. The effort and passion Bruce has put into this display didn’t go unnoticed. He seems to be working on this constantly so it is ever evolving. Worth the trip!

Alien Acres was a great stop on our journey. Bruce was incredibly friendly and made us feel right at home. We arrived after dark and it was really neat coming up to grounds with all the lights and props going. The site is very remote which made for beautiful views of the night sky. Keep in mind, Bruce has written directions to the site on the listing. Do not use GPS as it leads to an impassable road.

Alien Acres was such a unique experience! Bruce was extremely welcoming and provided a quiet camp site with gorgeous views of the landscape and night sky. Our dogs and we slept comfortably and enjoyed our visit. Waze will try to take you through private property so I recommend using google maps or contacting Bruce for the best way to the site to avoid some very rough unpaved roads. If we are in the area in the future, we hope to visit again!
