Sandy Valley Ranch has been selected by the likes of Criss Angel, The Killers, Top Chef, the Travel Channel, Living Better, and dozens of international television shows to film because its convenient location and ideal setting for filming movies, shows, music videos, and conducting photo shoots.
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.
We have everything you will need--197,000 acres of rugged BLM land, 160 acres of privately owned land, locations for western, sci-fi, horror, and horses, cattle, cowboys, wagons, rustic buildings, and two arenas with wooden bleachers, eerie mesquite trees, Joshua trees, yucca, cactus of all types, acres of dry lake, sand dunes, beautiful purple mountains (snow capped in winter) and rugged dirt roads.
The Ranch House provides a large restaurant and meeting facilities, plus we can cater to your crew wherever they are on location. We also provide locked equipment storage and deluxe star/director accommodations in a private guest house. Crew housing is available just 25 minutes away at two large hotel/casinos.
The ranch is 45 minutes from Las Vegas, 4 hours from Los Angeles, and has a private 3,200 ft paved, lighted airstrip which will accommodate planes up to small jets. We provide assistance in permitting in both Nevada and California, and our staff is experienced with film crews and eager to help.
