We stayed at the Olancha RV Park and Motel for 3 nights during our Winter Break road trip to Death Valley. Being that Furnace Creek accommodations were closed due to pandemic, and Panamint Springs was already booked solid, Olancha was the closest option available. A breathtaking 90 minute drive to Stovepipe Wells on 2 consecutive mornings was a pleasure. We had actually booked a teepee, but it was raining heavily and nighttime temperatures dipped into the high 20s, so that was not an option. In fact, the first morning we awoke to about 4 inches of fresh snow, which would have made for a bone chilling night before. The gentleman at the reception offered us a room in their sister property, the Ranch Motel a quarter mile down the road, at a small price increase, and it was a gem. A nicely updated and generously sized room with functional heater, clean private bathroom and flat screen tv served as our base camp and place to hunker down and crash. We didn't get a chance to try the Café, but the Mobil gas station down the road served up 7-11 style pizzas, hot and cold sandwiches, and wings. Certainly not gourmet food, but enough to recharge our batteries for 2 nights. All in all, a rustic but highly captivating stay. I can't tell you enough how spectacular Death Valley is, and if you can't secure accommodations inside the park, I highly recommmend the Olancha RV Park and Motel as a very good alternative.

Yep. Fun to stay in a teepee. Is it possible to get much "sleep" in one of the Olancha teepees? No. At your own peril -- ignore other reviewers' warnings about the highway noise from the semis blasting by and every fourth car hitting the rumble strips (both along the sides and down the middle of Hwy 395). My advice? If you want a "staying in a teepee" experience, have it somewhere else. Also of note, the lax staffing of this property was also of concern -- since I was determined to stay in a teepee, I was very persistent in my communication with the property in order to do so -- but it was like pulling teeth.

Room Tip: Do NOT stay in any of the teepees -- too close to the NOISY highway.

Needed a place to stay overnight on the way to Bodie State Park. Booked a Teepee because it seemed cool and the price was right. I was surprised at how much space I had inside. Also, the bed was comfortable and everything was clean. A perk of the Teepees is that they are all built on decks. We used our "private" deck to cook camp style food, drink beers, and stare at the stars. It was great and staff was super nice which is always a bonus! There does tend to be a lot of noise overnight as many of the reviews have mentioned. I think ear plugs or a white noise app would solve this problem. I can see myself staying in a Teepee here again in the future.

The Teepee was so so fun and very spacious. There is a pool on site with comfortable padded lounge chairs and the Olancha cafe is very good (highly recommend the burrito-they make everything fresh). The bathrooms are clean and exactly what one would need during a camping trip. I went with one of my friends and will bring my family next time. Thank you Alex + Olancha RV team! Tatiana

This place ticked all my American-RV-Park-in-the-middle-of-nowhere childhood dreams. We booked the tee-pee for a one-night stopover on our way to Yosemite and had an unusually cold night for May (2019). We couldn't stop laughing at our luck and thought we would freeze through the night but the electric blanket worked great. The staff were lovely, the cafe was great and the scenery is incredible. Awesome experience and lovely memory.
