A great spot to be especially if you enjoy nature, peace and quiet and don't have to be concerned with paparazzi's. The owners are very accommodating, friendly and ensure privacy of celebrity and non celebrity guest.

Rural Desert Camping; Wildlife Viewing


Welcome to Tucker Ranch which sets on over 12 acres of land.
We manage and maintain a wildlife refuge. As well as take in rescue animals.
A refuge is a safe haven for wildlife to traverse safely during migratory seasons no wildlife is ever held captive. We provide specific forage and water for the pronghorn and mule deer that they need to thrive on.
Our personal pets the chickens , dogs and cats are not considered part of the wildlife nor do they benefit from any donations. Our rescues are the goats and one donkey with special needs. All equine we take in are strictly hospice with special needs which receive love and care during their last days/months. Because we are a very small operation we can only hospice one equine at a time.

Because we are a private property with limited capacity reservation is required. We are NON-PROFIT in every sense of the word all work is volunteer no administration fees are accepted; all donations go the care of rescue animals that we shelter ; for their veterinary care and feed supplies.
Bring binoculars for wildlife viewing. 
Or just stop  on in and meet the animals ; a real treat for children that have never seen a Donkey , a goat or chickens in real life. 

2 Solar heated showers with shower tent available  for use.
Off leash fenced in dog area. 
We do have a public restroom which is maintained &  sanitized daily. 
Potable well water.

The site is pull in or back in. 
Very easy to maneuver with a large turn around area.
