Book your next camping trip in the high desert.

We're opening up the wide vistas, starry skies, expansive lands, and quiet ambiance to you. We believe rural places and communities have so much to offer. Just two hours from Los Angeles, we are nestled between the Sierra Madre and Caliente mountain ranges in the high desert of California's Central Coast. We'd like to share our place with you and leave you wanting to return to our desert town. We hope your visit brings you back to perhaps contribute or lay roots in our rural community. Learn more about the Shelton Huts designed by architect Jeff Shelton and his talented daughter Mattie Shelton.
