Welcome to the High Desert! 

*If you would like to put in a request to book, please give your Host a call at 1 -775- 374-0136 so he can go over your needs*

*Each site can accommodate one truck and trailer/RV. If you are planning on bringing additional vehicles, please reserve an additional site.*

Situated on a mountain ridge top with great big sky views, our pick-your-own RV campsites share the property with our nearby BioHome Research Facility.

We are 420 friendly, but please, no loud parties or hard drugs.

Spread out over 40 acres, if you're looking for stillness and serenity, this is the place to be. Need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still need to stay connected in some ways? Our property has great cell service, so you can still easily communicate with your loved ones back home. 

Nestled nearby on the property is our BioHome Research Facility, cared for and designed by your Host, Edward. Unique in its construction, this BioHome was constructed in 1997 and is designed to have completely closed, self-supporting life support systems. If the idea of living in a completely self sufficient, off-grid home is appealing and fascinating to you, please add the BioHome Experience Extra to your booking, at $35. Your Host will spend an hour with you and your group explaining the inner workings and construction of the Biohome.

*Please note, you are camping nearby Project Biohome. While we encourage your interest and curiosity in our project, please do not trespass onto this portion of the property. *

Our location does experience a variety of paranormal activity, including orbs. Have your camera ready!

Our property gets plenty of sunshine for most of the year in the summer months, with temperatures in July and August reaching the high 90's or more. We are in the desert, after all! Please bring plenty of water and be prepared for the elements that are unique to our region. As we are at considerable elevation, please be prepared for wind, as well! Tents are not suited for this environment. 

There are many scenic canyons to hike and explore nearby:  

Only 90 minutes away are the stunning Ruby Mountains, great for hiking and exploring. As one Google reviewer said "Don't come here. It's just too beautiful and you wont be able to handle it!" - Jacob L.

Bring your fishing poles and watersports supplies, as the nearby South Fork Reservoir and Wild Horse Reservoir  90 minutes away are popular spots with the locals for fishing and fun in the sun by the water. 

In the Winter months you can take off in any direction on your snow shoes and cross country skies for miles. There are exciting views everywhere you look! This is big sky country with great night sky views. If you're looking for a great dark sky destination, this is the spot for you.   

This area has lots of wildlife like antelope, badgers, rabbits and this is open range for cattle. You may have a bovine visitor! Please make sure to keep all food properly stored and disposed of so as to not attract wildlife to your campsite.

Welcome to the High Desert, we're sure you'll leave amazed at the views.

This was an amazing experience for the whole family! The BioHome was very interesting. We’ve spent a night off-grid, with the stars and a spectacular view.
Our host was so kind and accommodating. Would definitely repeat the experience.
Highly recommend! 😊
