Lake Mohave Ranchos:
Large, unique Joshua trees can be seen throughout these subdivisions of Lake Mohave Ranchos. The trees start at 13th Street and extend 5 miles to 23rd Street. Each subdivision is square with one mile each side. Between each subdivision is set aside one mile square of government land giving the area a checkerboard appearance and creating a lot of wide open spaces. Lake Mohave Ranchos was subdivided years ago into one acre lots. Each unit contains about 480 one acre lots. There are over 20 different units of Lake Mohave Ranchos. Fourteen of the units are found in the Joshua tree area from 13th St. to 23rd St.

Some lots have city water available. Others you haul your own water or have it delivered. The scenery is spectacular with colorful mountains. The Cerbat Mountain Range can be seen in the East, Table Mountain in the North and the Black Mountains to the South. Much of the terrain is level to gently rolling hills with mature Joshua trees over 20′ high. The landscaping is natural and easy to take care of. With the setting of the sun the mountains change colors. At night you can see the red glow of Las Vegas in the western sky. Millions of bright stars light up the evening sky and sometimes you can see the milky way. The area is becoming more popular for amateur astronomers to take a short drive out of the light pollution of Las Vegas to see the stars and distant planets in our clear uninterrupted skies.

All lots are at least an acre in size except for the downtown area which are quarter acres or more. Septic tanks are used throughout the area, there is no sewer system. We have lots with power & phone available and many with water. You can have horses and other animals on these lots. Units 6 through 15 are located in the middle of a Joshua Tree Forest. They are all located off the Pierce Ferry Road some you have to drive a little farther on the dirt road to get to. But no more than 2 miles.
