China Ranch Lodging
Experience luxury camping in our authentic Indian-style tipis. You’ll sleep soundly under a starry night sky and awaken to spectacular views of pristine ancient desert hills. Heated beds take the chill off the winter nights, and air conditioners cool the summer heat. The check-in office is located in the old mining town of Tecopa, California. Once checked in and orientated, you will find your accommodations located three miles away on the beautiful China Ranch oasis. To get there you will drive past wizened and weathered limestone formations to where the road ends, and find yourself in the Amargosa Canyon, where you will begin your adventure.
The Ranch House – circa 1920 – is just steps from the tipis and is shared by all of the tipi guests. It is small and charming, and always open. This is where you find your bathrooms with hot showers, sitting areas and dining room. There are two full bathrooms and two outdoor showers that are shared by all of the guests.
Food and Beverage. We provide a guest microwave, refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, and dishes. The water is great to drink right from the tap. The closest place to buy food and supplies is a one-hour drive. There are local restaurants that we will recommend upon arrival.
