Inside of The Honeymooner



The California Ponderosa is located in Slab City, CA. It is an extreme desert environment. Ponderosa accommodations are indoor trailers. While we do our best to keep it clean, (linens are always changed upon check-out and replaced with fresh bedding for new guests), the camp is IN THE DESERT. There is dirt. If you are bothered by dirt and off-grid camping, this may not be the place for you. Please plan accordingly. Weather through Nov-Dec, 70s during the day 50s at night.


MOST MEALS COOKED IN THE KITCHEN INVOLVE MEAT. Clean pans are available should you require cooking without.


(All rentals include use of full camp facilities. More available on airbnb).
