Kathy is a great host. sunsets were beautiful. evenings were pleasant with cool breezes blowing. When she finishes her renovations the saloon will add greatly to the southwest charm.

The saloon itself was half burned to the ground and there was this abandoned trailerpark in the back, it felt very unsafe to me, i ended up staying the night somewhere else...
Maybe it was nothing and i'm just paranoid. Anyways not a place where I'd want to stay the night in my tent.
There were both water and electricity though, so that works out and the desert sunset looks very cool!

I liked the quiet and seclusion. Campgrounds can be so noisy and "busy". I ended up leaving earlier than expected since it was so hot and difficult to keep the travel trailer and my furbabies cool. We will go back in cooler weather.

We were pretty amused to be camping in what felt like a ghost town... The only signs off life were from the RV park two blocks over. The saloon was either closed for the season (really, July is not a great time of year to be camping in the desert southwest) or has not yet recovered from the fire.

Cool little spot in the middle of nowhere. Owners seemed nice but we were beat from the heat and didn’t hang out, though we were offered a cold beer. Sites 2 and 3 are right on top of each other so if someone else was camping there would have been no privacy. You are in a gravel parking lot behind the old saloon.

Kathy’s spot was perfect! Right between Death Valley and Las Vegas you get the best of both worlds. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Having full hookups were perfect in the Nevada heat. Absolutely will stay again!

Well Kathy's place was found as expected with full hook-ups. I was looking forward to having a cold beer in her Saloon, but unfortunately the Saloon caught fire 5 days prior and was mostly destroyed. Loyal patrons have a Go-Fund program going to try to help her re-build. Hopefully they can.Wemet Kathy in the morning before we left and she would be a great person to help out. Her camping is still available and definitely worth the price.

My communication with Kathy was prompt and friendly. We delayed our trip due to our car problem but she was very understanding. We hope we can go again sometime soon.
