Great place to tent camp! Not too far from the main road with easy to follow directions to the spot. Awesome fire pit! Does get a bit windy. Great views of the sunrise/sunset and starry night sky.

Spectacular Sunrise
It was lovely to be out in the desert. The sunrise was spectacular. The campsite is a nice space and wasn't at all crowded. Two thumbs up!

We loved tent camping on Ryan’s land. Great fire ring. Close to interesting Salton Sea nostalgia. Recommend taking a drive around Salton Sea to Bombay Beach. Muscular to see! Thanks Ryan!

This was an interesting place to camp. It is not particularly private, but quite convenient and really nice fire pit. If you are a person looking for escape to nature, this may not be the ideal location. But if you are looking to recreate in the area, this is a great find. Ryan was extremely helpful and communicative. I am the kind that is generally looking for an escape, but even I would camp here again. I was solo, but this would also be good for a noisy group. Thank you, Ryan!

Practical but not the most scenic.
It’s very convenient and the plot is easy enough to find but very few amenities or natural beauty.

Private desert pocket of magic.
Property was beautiful with no one in sight. Great fire pit. Full moon bursting over the desert. Sunrise, sunset, magic hour, the whole package. Make sure to park on back access road or you will get to have a fun adventure like us! Thank you Ryan for your warm hospitality!
