Cinematic, expansive landscapes and quiet just an hour or so from LA! Be aware, this location requires driving on UNPAVED, BUMPY roads, so I recommend driving a car or truck that sits high above the ground. Also there are no restrooms, but our crew gave business to the nearby Antelope Market so that we could use their facilities. Freedom (host) is very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this location for filming!

Great outdoor location. The poppy flowers are gone but it's still great for an outdoor shoot.

Francois was great to work with, and the land was perfect! There are great desert hills to the north and big vista views to the south/south east, so we were able to get a pretty moonrising in the east, and a gorgeous sunset to the west. At night, you see the distant twinkles of city lights, but there was completely unobstructed desert landscape all around us, which was amazing. I was very grateful Francois gave us a heads-up about the dirt road condition as my car would not have made it steep and often washed out road! Absolutely recommend an all wheel vehicle to get to this spot, but it's well worth the drive.
