1000's of real rocks and 1 fake one!
(Can you find it?)
What is Blayney Ranch?
We are a 160-acre parcel of unspoiled desert wilderness. We protect and preserve this natural landscape and make it available for the filming arts. We have amazing rock formations, dirt roads, canyons, mountain pass, dry river beds, Joshua Trees, a horse corral, out-buildings and much more. Visit our "Photos" page to see our magnificent property.
Why Choose Blayney Ranch?
We are a private ranch, fenced to protect unauthorized entry. Our property is large enough to provide you with secluded locations for your filming privacy. We have far fewer restrictions than County, State, Federal or BLM lands. We have similar rock formations as those found in Joshua Tree National Park, but are half the distance from Hollywood.
Blayney Ranch North Reopens!
The northern half of Blayney Ranch, which has been inaccessible for the past several years due to weather related damage, has just reopened on a limited basis.
A new gate has been installed which allows direct vehicle access to the north section from the county paved road. Improvements to our interior roads will continue over the next several months and will temporarily limit the size and type of vehicles able to access the area.
Our northern property consists of more gently sloping land than our southern section. It allows greater photographic distance from our rock formations. Coming improvement will include long, straight stretches of dirt roads which may also double as desert runways, a helipad, a firearms shooting range and dirt roads ascending to the highest accessible areas of Blayney Ranch.

Dedicated to the Filming Arts
Whether motion pictures or stills, feature films or commercials, music videos or print ads or anything else, Blayney Ranch is dedicated to providing you with beautiful desert scenery in a safe and private environment.
Our amazing landscapes are known to have appeared in productions dating back to the 1950's. Purchased by the Blayney family in 1977, Blayney Ranch is currently owned and operated by Randall & Stephen Blayney. Following in their parents footsteps they continue the tradition of protecting the natural beauty of this desert land while making it available to the filming arts.
We are committed to providing you with a quality experience whether you are a multi-million dollar budget production or a student film. Our site reps are knowledgeable and friendly and will do what they can to make your visit enjoyable and productive.
Please contact us for additional information regarding our beautiful property and how you can reserve it for your next production.
