Resorts are the perfect place to unwind and renew oneself. It would make sense that the FBI and U.S. Air Force might seek out such comforts considering the demands of their respective roles in keeping America safe. But the Dreamland Resort catching the attention of the federal government here lately isn’t some tropical spa with all-you-can-drink margaritas and a lazy river. No, it’s a safe haven for anything and everything Area 51. The website’s owner recently found himself under the watchful eye of both entities after they raided his home in Rachel, NV.

Checking Into the Dreamland Resort
There’s a huge list of monikers, nicknames, and aliases for Area 51. Among them is Dreamland, which is what gives the website run by Joerg Arnu the perfect name: dreamlandresort.com. Within the site, you can find plenty of the following:
- Pictures, information, maps, and news articles highlighting Area 51.
- FAQs, tips, and other useful information for anyone looking to make the trip.
- Radio frequencies, along with callsigns and code words, used on and around Area 51.
- Reports from other travelers to Groom Lake.
- News and events including Red Flag exercises.
- Black Project information is also available.
You can find a community of fellow curious minds and relatively detailed information, including other military installations like the Tonopah Test Range. Various other links and resources to military installations and weaponry are also available.
Since launching on October 1, 1999, the site has had more than 8 million visitors and continues to be a leading authority in the UFO/Area 51 space. You might not be able to book a flight on Janet Airlines, but for much of anything else involving the area, this is the place to be online.
The Truth Is Out There, But the Feds Are Watchin’
Dreamland Resort is a great example of the well-documented desire to learn more about the mysteries of our government, the universe, and, specifically, Area 51. At its most boring, the facility is a test site of top aviation technology for the military.
But at its most exciting, it could confirm contact with beings from another planet, galaxy, dimension?… Probably not, but you never know. There are many mysteries of the universe with or without Area 51, so anything is possible.
This brings us back to the underlying theme found here: the search for the truth. Humans are curious. If not for this curiosity, we wouldn’t have advancements in our lives. A desire to learn is a very human experience.
Sure, the Internet is filled with plenty of conspiracy theorists, and even before the world wide web, several rumors circulated about the secretive base in Nevada. However, with the amount of evidence, commonalities, and leaks available, it’s understandable the desire to see what’s inside.
Dreamland Resort, Black Projects, and Classified Information
Joerg Arnu’s efforts to follow his passion seemed to have caught the attention of a couple of government entities. Federal agents recently conducted a mysterious raid on his homes; agents of both the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and FBI entered his two Nevada homes.
Much of the information about this ongoing investigation is being kept under wraps, similar to the base’s activities at the center of all of this. However, we do know that on November 3, 2022, the agents acted to seize alleged evidence in an undisclosed joint agency probe.
“I believe the search, executed with completely unnecessary force by overzealous government agents was meant as a message to silence the Area 51 research community,” said Arnu. “My girlfriend was led out into the street barefoot and only in her underwear in full view of the neighbors. I was led outside, handcuffed, and only in a t-shirt and sweats in sub-freezing temperatures,” he said.
It appears that the alleged 15-20 agents entered his homes and took many personal items, including phones, laptops, backup drives, his drone, and more. Damage is said to have impacted his home, as well.
Arnu sounds as if he’ll be taking legal action. He’s also taken down some material from his website to “defuse the situation” but isn’t planning on removing any more content unless told to by a judge.
This is an interesting case that’s still developing. On one hand, there’s a lot to speculate about because of the nature of Arnu’s content. On the other, because this case is sealed and the investigation is still fresh, how this will go is anyone’s guess.
Overall, within the legal framework of the United States, if Dreamland Resort was acting in good faith, the government may end up having to return what was taken and pay mightily while doing so. For Arnu and his fellow hobbyists, it seems that the government won’t be invited back to the “vacation spot” any time soon.
