This place was beautiful and awesomely remote. There was so much attention to detail in and around the site with the decorations. There were a couple pieces of firewood stocked on the site for cooking which was an awesome surprise. I would camp here again in a heartbeat.

This place is amazing. What a view of the sunset! The owners really hit a home run with picking this place and I am thankful that they are sharing it. The site is very unique and one of the better camping sites I have stayed at. I was blow away. Plenty of room for parking and for tents. I highly recommend this place! Make sure you take a GPS and the coordinates. I forgot mine... I will 100% be staying here again!! Thank you so much.

This campsite was absolutely beautiful! 10/10 views! It has funky desert charm that feels cozy. Jody has done a wonderful job of furnishing the site with a fire pit, chairs, cooking basics, and even a little private space to use the bathroom. I would recommend this site in a heart beat!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Possibly the quietest place I’ve ever spent a night. Our group of 11 had plenty of space to stretch out. The furnishings served us well, and the touches of color popped in the desert.

The Edge of Nowhere. Truly the most accurate name for this site. You are the only person as far as the eye can see. Complete silence except for the wind, and the view is absolutely astonishing. The campsite was well kept and maintained and the road was a little rough but do-able. Overall an excellent experience, thank you Jody for allowing us to stay!

Definitely a far drive to get to the campsite from the main road, but once you get there it’s cute.
