For those of you that hit the road this might be a place of gathering during the colder winter months. Slab City is located in South Eastern California about 3 miles outside the town of Niland. Slab city was once the home of a WWII Marine Barracks named Camp Dunlap but was abandoned. It is now home for many travelers in the winter months with a few full time residents. Slab city has a musical stage, a public library that is ran on the honor system and also has a nice hot spring that has been diverted into a shower box for those who are looking for a little scrubby dubby.

Here are some great pieces of art work at slab city. These are part of a giant creation called salvationmountain. A local resident's lifetime work

Found some Slab City Dreadlocks!

Well Folks theres an intro to Slab City. I almost mustered up the courage to hit the road about 8 years ago before I had my family. This was going to be my first destination as it was during the colder months, maybe some of you could make a successful Journey and see the sights and wacky things at Slab City. Please let us know if you make it there!

Heres a video about Slab City. For those familiar with A-Camp (rainbow family lingo for alcohol camp) this is looking like those sorts of folks hang here. Just use common sense especially if your young or a solo traveling girl.
