Hi Melanie! I've never done the 3 day, but I have done the Geo Bun Buster ride that is in the same location. Its a really nice ride with good footing, maybe a bit rocky in stretches, but those bits dont' go on and on. Nice sandy footing for the most part so you can move along at a good pace. It is desert scenery, but I was amazed at how much more interesting that is from horseback vs. whizzing by on highway 395 on our way to Mammoth <g>.
The ridecamp is near a Taco Bell but you definitely don't feel like you're in their parking lot (because you're not, you're back a ways). To tell you the truth, the Taco Bell and mini mart plus gas station come in kind of handy (I always seem to forget something!). It can be a bit windy there so bring a good windbreaker and a hat that you can attach to your head and if you're tenting it, stake that sucker down good.
