Learn more about this land: Dusty Rabbit Van Life @ Schrimsher Ranch is an alternative camping & Star Gazing location just outside of town, yet close to the open road. A great place to relax under the stars, have a camp fire, and kick back next to your travel rig after a long day. You are welcome to explore the 600+ acres of rolling hills and high desert of our ranch. If you cross a fence you've gone too far, so that makes it easy for you to know where you're at. You might just want to crash for the night in a safe location out on the rangeland or stay a day or two to enjoy the land to walk, mountain bike antelope trails, and maybe even Sniffers the pronghorn antelope will find ya before you head out. This is a primitive site, so leave no trace practice is appreciated and pack in/out is how we do it here. If you come in the summer prepare the morning coffee early and enjoy the desert sun's rays hit the Capitan, but by 9am it will be hot, so be ready! Best star gazing and satellite watching in the world! I have several sites to choose from. But remember to keep an eye on the wind and weather as it can get crazy out here sometimes…..!!! I try to keep the sites stocked with firewood, but fill free to bring your own. Lonely Bull Camp 1 is my most popular site. It is very private and is easily accessible by most vehicles and campers. Ask about Lonely Bull Camp 4x4 if you have a capable vehicle. Amazing stars!! Old Highway Camp is a great alternative if you want something closer to the highway and have a safe private place to pull over, camp, kickback, make a fire and get back to your life on the on the road in the morning. It is closer to the highway, but is quite at night and has great star gazing. Enjoy being greeted by The Mountain in the morning. Let me know where you would like to stay and I will do my best to accommodate you! Safe travels!

The Sound of Silence
Camping on Nathan's land was an incredible experience. It is completely private, and completely silent. Such a relaxing place to camp out and stargaze. I absolutely loved this experience, would recommend it to anyone who is not afraid of the quiet and solitude. I hope to return again someday. Nathan was incredibly helpful with the directions he shared, and was so accommodating. There is a nice little campfire at the site including a grate for cooking, as well as a picnic table. We were able to bike around the property and enjoy a beautiful sunrise, sunset and had fun with star photography.

This was everything I always long for in a Hipcamp: totally dark, quiet, and beautiful. So grateful I found this spot! I slept under a full dome of stars, it was breath-taking. Thanks for sharing this slice of magic with the world, Nathan!
