No drones

No drones, we like quiet and we like privacy.

Pet restrictions

All pets must be on a leash and are NOT to have free run of the campground or to be left unattended. This is an area with rattlesnakes, coyotes, bears and many other critters that are dangerous to your pets. Pick up after your animals. Do not bring your pets in the store or museum.

All showers closed

The shower house is currently closed. Showers are not available on the property. They will remain closed until at least May 1st.


All fires are to be in a designated fire container, no exceptions. Wood fires are currently banned.

No washing vehicles

Yes, we know, your vehicle/motorcycle/trailer/RV/jetpack/spaceship or however you travel most likely got dirty on the way down here. Your visiting the desert. That's just how it is. We are on a well and cannot allow the luxurious consumption of water many are accustom to. There will be a $25 charge minimum if caught washing vehicles. Please, just wait until you get to an actual carwash or home.
