Filming in the remote desert location is often difficult with amenities, housing and access to editing being far away or completely unavailable. The ranch provides diverse scenic locations combined with comfort and convenience.
A WIDE RANGE OF CHOICES
With 197,000 acres of rugged BLM land and 160 acres of privately owned land, the ranch has locations for western, sci-fi, horror, and more... Horses, cattle, cowboys, wagons, rustic buildings, and two arenas with wooden bleachers, eerie mesquite trees, Joshua trees, yucca, cactus of all types.
There are also acres of dry lake with wind-formed sand sculptures, sand dunes, beautiful purple mountains (snow capped in winter) including an 8,000 ft. peak, lots of desert, rugged roads, and dirt roads. Most locations are 10-30 minutes from the Ranch House.
