We are building a homestead on 40 acres and are just getting started. We call it the Apple Mountain Ranch, but we are not on a mountain and there are no apple trees. If we meet we'll explain. Nothing fancy here but great views, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, and a firepit and grill you are welcome to use. The pad was bladed and is roughly a quarter acre so any rig should be able to easily maneuver . We do run our generator in the evening. Your horses are welcome, although we don't have corrals in yet. There are no amenities like water, power, and sewer. There is an outdoor toilet for tent campers. Be aware that the wind can occasionally blow very hard and the area is sandy.
Please take all non-biodegradable trash with you (bottles, cans, plastic, glass). We have a compost bin for organic matter, paper, cardboard. No littering whatsoever (this includes cigarettes butts and nails in any wood you burn). Any litter you will be asked to leave and not allowed back. Please bring your own firewood. We don't have enough to share at this time. Tether or leash animals. We are building a fence. Once it is built dogs can be loose when ours is inside. We are 420 friendly but no tweeking please.
We are about 15 minutes out of Winnemucca by paved state highway, then 1/2 mile on a good dirt road. Camping will be on a large, fairly level dirt pad. Any rig can access this. There is no power, water, or sewer. Just a camp in the desert.
With the rig.
We come and go throughout the year so availability may vary, but we welcome visitors when we are there.
We are about 15 minutes from Winnemucca, 20 minutes from water canyon, 40ish minutes from rye patch reservoir, a short drive from sand dunes, and there are lots more recreational opportunities in the area.
Appetoni wasn’t able to be there, but allowed us to stay anyways. Which was very much appreciated. It was a nice quiet spot outside of town. Beautiful view of the nearby mountains. Nice sunset. Too windy for a camp fire.
Great boondocking place. Quite and relaxing. Dogs loved to run.
Surrounded by sage bushes. Very quiet and peaceful and yet only 15 minutes back into town. Great stop over! Thank you for letting me stay.
appetoni is a wonderful host, I was a bit confused when I got to a certain point and appetoni came out to guide me the rest of the way; not that the instructions/ directions were bad, but I sometimes get “confused” when there are things that “pop up” that I’m not sure if I should go this way or that 🤪. She has an adorable baby, very similar to one of mine. I was thrilled I could leave my tea leaves in the compost pile !
I would definitely stay here again !
After a very long day of driving and fighting cross winds, it was a welcome sight to see where we'd be boondocking. Our host is incredibly gracious and the site is not unlike other similar sites we've stayed at in the high desert. Beautiful vistas and a warm welcome is hard to beat! We had a chance to take a nice walk and saw horned larks and a black tipped jackrabbit. Thank you so much appetoni for hosting us.
appetoni was so friendly. We also met her son Aaron. He was super friendly too. Her little dog was a joy. She jumped right up into my wife's lap as to say, "you are welcome here". We had a campfire in the evening. The lights of Winnemucca can be seen from the property. Very dark at night. There were clouds so we couldn't see the stars. We will be staying here again!! Thank you for a great time. It was easy to get my 33ft TT in and out.
Super quiet location, away from the city. Friendly, welcoming host was great on short notice.
