The Oasis in the Desert

If you want to meet some of the most gracious, and generous people on the planet, stop in at DesertStephens in Landers. When we originally stopped here, we only planned on staying one night. But, after one night, we couldn't leave. These guys were the best. They even asked us to stay and celebrate Thanksgiving with them. We were truly spoiled, and made a new friendship with these hosts. They took us for a ride in their rig as well, and showed us what the A class life is like. They know all the secrets, and places to go, and we can't wait to stop by again, and see what's new. Don't skip Landers, you'll miss out on some great sunsets, star gazing, and hosts. These guys are one of the reasons that the RV community has such a good name.

Very helpful Hosts

We stayed here one night on our way back from Joshua Tree. Stephen´s wife was really helpful and got us everything we needed for our stay. We only met Stephen very early in the morning before we left. Overall a very kind couple and a very nice stay.

Fun in the high desert!

Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming! The spot was level, fit our 41 foot fifth wheel easily, and even had hook ups! On Saturday our hosts took us to a few places in the desert that we would have never found without them. Petroglyphs. A HUGE bolder. We had a great time and hopefully will get a chance to stay here again. A big thanks to our hosts!

Wonderful hosts, so generous, so warm

We had a fantastic time staying with DesertStephen and his wife and seeing the local area with them! It was hard to leave in the end and we hope to stay in touch. DS was super generous in lending me tools and sharing wisdom to do a few repairs and improvements on the old van mobile. If you are in Yucca Valley be sure to stop by Jelly Donut late afternoon/early evening and see what their mysterious box of pink donuts are selling for. I paid $4.75 for easily a dozen donuts. It goes down every hour by a dollar! You'd be a fool not to buy them at any price! Enough jokes. Can't recommend DS & Co. enough. They are truly wonderful folk and you should stop by Landers to hang out with them. Or host them if they inquire!
