Pioneertown, CA

If you have seen Judge Roy Bean, Annie Oakley or The Cisco Kid, you have seen Pioneertown. Pioneertown started as a living motion picture movie set in the old west style. From what I understand it was built in the 1940s sometime. The concept was the actors would live in the set while they were filming. Roy Rogers, Barbara Billingsley and Gene Autry were a few of the actors you could find on set. Also, to be found is the Pioneertown Bowling Alley. Gene Autry would tape his show there and he rolled the first ball in the late 1940s. Check out the murals!

During the summer months, old west re-enactments take place on Saturday right on Mane Street. Also, behind P-Town, there are corrals that can be rented for your horse(s). Also, the hotel is under new management and no longer allows tent camping. The owner of the corrals does allow tents and provides a giant communal fire ring.  Set yourself up by the fence to get a little bit of privacy.
