Water Rock Ranch is clean, picturesque 5 acre ranch in Pahrump, Nevada, surrounded by magnificent mountains, and next door to a mission like tower. Time at WR melts tension and stress away, and can bring calm to your life. One may meditate, relax, and find serenity (except for the occasional rooster crow or goat bray). Or, catch up with email, etc, with free WIFI.
Several boulders on the property so PLEASE USE FLASHLIGHT!
Accommodations at Water Rock Ranch consist of one 18' diameter tipi, which includes 2 single air mattress beds, indian blankets, electric blankets if needed, electricity, and fan. NOT RAIN PROOF because top of tipi is open slightly.
At your disposal, next to the tipi is a pergola sitting area, fire pit (wood provided) and cooking grill (you bring your own coal, utensils, etc). Please do not feed the animals.
Your tipi and sitting area is at the back of the ranch. A shared indoor lockable bathroom, with shower, is located at the center of the ranch.
You share Water Rock Ranch with its owners and, during the day, ranch hands. Also, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, goats, and desert tortoises (when not in hibernation). Also, for those with allergies, please note there is alfalfa hay on the ranch. Please drive slow on ranch property! No additional animals allowed (sorry)!
Pahrump, Nevada is easy to reach and hard to forget. It’s an hour+ west of Las Vegas and an hour east of Death Valley National Park, a place known for extremes. Apart from Death Valley, day trips include Amargosa Opera House and Hotel, Ash Meadows preserve for plant and animal life in the region, China Ranch (a lush, green oasis surrounded on all sides by mountain ridges), Tecopa Hot Springs, Red Rock Canyon, and, of course, Las Vegas.

YES!!!! This tipi was ana amazing experience!
We had a blast and definitely felt at peace in the tipi. It's such a relaxing and wonderful experience there. The bathhouse was glorious and the host Pepper Jay was so so so kind! She guided me through the morning feedings of the animals and her beautiful greenhouse. Check out that greenhouse at night it's freaking amazing!
Must go back again and again!
We loved the experience of staying in a tepee -- a first for my spouse and I. The tepee was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The high-powered fan kept us cool and cozy the whole time.
Outside the tepee, the grounds were spacious. The bathroom and pantry were newly and tastefully remodeled.
The hosts were super-friendly, and went beyond the call of duty to make sure we were comfortable. All around, it was a great experience staying at the Water Rock Camp. Thank you, Pepper and John!
