Camping is an awesome and affordable way to experience the desert outdoors and exquisite nights under the stars. We have several camping areas to choose from; all of which come with the option of showers, bathrooms and a jacuzzi. There are however no hook-ups, no pets allowed, and absolutely no open flames - thanks for understanding!

We are located approximately 45 minutes from Palm Springs International Airport, 1½ hours from Ontario Airport, 1 ¾ hours from Orange County International Airport and 2 hours from Los Angeles. Our high desert (3000 ft) locale boasts wonderfully cool evenings even during the warmest of seasons. The Joshua Tree National Park is only 6 miles away, and aside from our own hiking trails, there is a unique and beautiful marshland with additional hikes just a few minutes away.
This land, though desert, rests upon an aquifer, a running river that produces an intriguing magnetic effect on those who enter this ancient and sacred space. There are plenty of wonderful spots to explore; including an outdoor amphitheater with earthen stage, lights and fire pit for outdoor activities and other wonderful evening events under the stars.
We also have meditation paths, tai chi circles, transformation labyrinth, swimming pools, wellness spa and a traditional Lakota sweat lodge; it truly is a magical place.
