We are located between Las Vegas and Death Valley in the beautiful Pahrump Valley. The boondocking spot is in front of the house so you can pull in and pull straight out when you leave. You will be parking on gravel. Slideouts or awnings ok if you park your rig so they are facing the house. One or two pets are welcome. No electrical hookup. Water hookup if needed. Suggested Local Attractions: Pahrump Valley Winery Sanders Family Winery Pahrump Valley Museum Spring Mountain Motor Resort Shoshone Amargosa Opera House in Death Valley Junction Death Valley (lots of things to see here) Don't miss Dante's View.

    Just what i needed after a busy day at the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area, a quiet place to rest. Met with my host and thanked him for letting me stay in front of his house. Left early the next morning.

    Inquired late in the day as darkness approached and response was immediate. Kind and gracious host. Thanks so much.

    Appreciated staying here. It is close to everything. Did not see the hosts much but enjoyed some brief friendly conversations. Pahrump is a great place to explore and most everything you need is in Pahrump. The parking is on a bit of a slant so leveling may be needed.

    When we got to the house in the dark after a long drive across windy deserts, we found an excellent spot in front of the house. Everything was as reliable as described and can be seen in the photo and in the description. It doesn't get any better than that. The quiet night then gave way to the morning when we met for a very nice memory. There are no other friendly people in Nevada like there. We had a very nice long conversation and were able to get to know each other personally. It was a very good experience for everyone. We have such fond memories of this place. We hope that we were able to give the host something lasting from our stories and wish them all the best! Thanks.
