Better directions would be good, the map shows several roads, and we got turned around on some of the dirt roads. The link to open the directions in Google maps takes to to some abandoned vehicles, but they are nowhere near the shipping containers noted in the listing. The photos are a bit deceiving, some show the abandoned vehicles that google maps takes you to, some show the abandoned vehicles near the shipping containers. Overall pleased with the site, though I’m pretty sure we weren’t at it, and never found the shipping containers. Great views, and fun experience!

Need to get a group together to blast some loud music? This is the spot! We are so grateful to have had a spot to dance and groove and enjoy the funky abandoned vehicles out here! There's also a great little hill to catch the sunset.

Great stop during a road trip. The shipping containers and old car frames are a cool touch. The area is littered with trash and broken glass though, so be careful.

Creative, quiet and dreamy space.
Off the grid but fun place to really see the stars. We did not stay due to an urgent matter; but we’ll be back.

Chelsea was a gracious host! Very kind and responsive. The directions to get to the site were clear and accurate. I spent one night here in my campervan. The site is so cool. There are two storage containers, old bus wreck, and old car wreck. Lots of fun to explore. Looks like a post-apocalyptic mirage in the middle of the desert. If you are coming with small children, definitely keep an eye on them (there is broken glass and nails and the site). I would definitely camp here again.
