I stopped one evening thinking I'd spend the night in their RV facility.
At the restaurant I quickly realized $16.00 to $20.00 for a burger was way beyond the price of bringing in the supplies.
But its a gold mine mentality, right?
Then I asked the price of the night at the RV park.
Its then I realized they must have left some gold lying around for passing campers to take with them as souvenirs of their visit.
But I didn't need any, my pockets were full of credit cards.
I decided to head over to Stove Pipe. On the way, I saw the Trona road to the right. Decided to push down that way a couple of miles. About five miles south I came to the road to Ballarat, three miles east of the main road.
The road is dirt, and there isn't any resort, but it is an old ghost town.
The folks are friendly. The overnight RV charge is $2.00, and cold drinks are $2.00.
Unless you really need the feeling of connection your electrical umbilical gives, this is a very pleasant alternative.
But they aren't leaving gold on the ground for passing rvers to take home.
