*The Palm Hills Movie Ranch is a project of, and managed by the Greater Palm Springs Film Office


Palm Springs, California

Directly off East Palm Canyon Drive in the heart of Palm Springs, the Palm Hills Movie Ranch is the closest uninhabited mountainous desert vistas in the Coachella Valley.

With spectacular views of Palm Springs and other cities to the north, to secluded, gorgeous rolling hills and rocky mountains to the south, the over 1200 acres of desert vista is the perfect location for your outdoor production. Step a few yards from the edge and the city disappears giving a 360° view of desolate terrain: No paved roads, telephone poles, buildings, houses or people – it’s 100% natural beauty – only minutes from downtown Palm Springs.
