Our "flyer" for our desert property
This is a 67 acre low desert property located about 2 miles west of the airport near lovely but isolated Borrego Springs, Ca. There is an interesting solar energy history here but it is hard to explain to people just how $45 million dollars were spent between 1981 and 1987 and where did it all go?! This was once the site of the United Energy Corporation's photovoltaic solar energy generation and ethanol manufacturing effort. Sadly no electricity or ethanol was ever generated for the public benifit.
Our campground is a work in progress. We've saved the remains of the Ethanol "Still" and cleaned and restored that part of the property for a 25 space fenced campground. There are no hookups but picnic tables, fire tubs and portapotties are available.
Since we are away from city lights the stargazing, comet and meteor watching opportunities are almost unlimited! If you like to escape civilization for a few days, sit around the campfire, bring out your binoculars or telescopes, hear the stories of the indians and outlaws that we've researched...come join us!
County regulations will not allow us to be open continuously yet but we can accommodate large or small groups about once a month. Call us at 760-753-8022hm or 760-525-0076c. or email us at DESERTSTARANCH@aol.com
