While doing some searching on line came across a place called China Ranch Date Farm, We decided to take a day trip and check it out. I have to say it was a great day we had a very good time. You would never know that this place is even there. We got hot date nut bread and some fresh made cookies, we even tried out their Date Shake and it was yummy. They have all kinds of stuff for sale and a lot of Antiques also. I will say that the road is not too good but other that that it is worth the trip. Before you get to the turn off there is a little town named Tocopa and there is a RV Park with full hookups. There are RV spots everywhere but they don't look to good.
Please check out this web site and be sure to click on the History link at the top of the page. Then click on my picture link below and choose the China Ranch Album to see the pictures I took...OH I FORGOT TO SAY THIS IS IN CA.
I thought that name sounded familiar, we've been there. We took a drive there from Pahrump,NV. What an interesting place it is. I am constantly amazed by what we find growing out in the middle of nowhere in the desert. If you are in the area China Ranch is worth the drive
