This irreplaceable, former U.S. Army base, consisting of 575 private military-built, concrete and steel, all-risk bunkers, is now repurposed and affordably priced, ready to provide life-saving shelter for your entire family or group. You can visit and stay in your bunker as often as you like, even live in it fulltime as your primary residence or a home away from home.
Vivos xPoint is located near the Black Hills area of South Dakota, just south of the City of Edgemont. The Black Hills Army Base was originally built by the Army Corps of Engineers as a fortress to store bombs and munitions, from 1942 to 1967, when the base was completely retired.
The Army then sold the property to the City of Edgemont, which in turn sold it to local cattle ranchers. Since 1967 the bunkers sat empty until Vivos purchased the property and repurposed them.
Vivos now owns the property and the bunkers.
Within a 24 hour drive from virtually all points within the United States.
Vivos xPoint is strategically and centrally located in one of the safest areas of North America, at a high and dry altitude of 3,800+/- feet, well inland from all large bodies of water; and, 100+/- miles from the nearest known military nuclear targets.
Centrally Located. Easy Access.
This map illustrates where you don't want to be, stuck and a victim of the marauders during the aftermatch following a large scale cataclysm or catastrophic event.
This former military base is no longer a target, having been retired since 1967.
It's difficult to capture the enormous scale of Vivos xPoint, nearly 3/4 of the size of Manhattan, NYC. Standing at one end of the complex, you cannot see the furthest bunkers on the horizon.
Massive. Safe. Secure. Isolated.
This former Army Munitions Depot, with 575 hardened concrete military bunkers is the largest survival shelter community on Earth, with accommodations for more than 5,000 like-minded survivalists to ride out 'the event' and the aftermath to follow.
The Vivos security team can spot anyone approaching the property from 3 miles away with just one road in and out.
Private. Defensible. Totally Off-Grid.
There are over 575 bunkers arranged along 100 miles of private roads providing access to each of the bunkers, strategically aligned in countless rows and sections for as far as the eye can see. The layout provides security, protection and privacy to each bunker.
Extensively graded for drainage, across the gently sloping grasslands of South Dakota.
Each bunker provides enough floor area, with attic potential, to comfortably accommodate 10 to 24 people and their needed supplies, for a year or more, of autonomous shelterization without needing to emerge outside.
The compressive eliptical shaped concrete bunker includes a massive front bulkhead wall, with a solid concrete and steel blast door entrance.
Nearly 2,200 square feet of floor space.
Each bunker is buried and protected under thick berms of soil, reportedly designed and built by the Army to withstand a significant blast wave, while being strategically separated from the next bunker by 400 feet in all directions.
This eliptical shape mitigates a surface blast wave, as well as radioactive fallout due to the thickness of the overburden of soil and concrete.
As the Vivos xPoint community grows, so will the amenities, providing comfort, convenience, support, training, entertainment and security. Each of these amenity bunkers will be developed as the community develops and time permits.
All bunkers feature a standard 26.5 foot interior floor width, with lengths of 60 feetÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ and 80 feet, each with a 12.5 foot high ceiling to the top of the interior arch. Protection is mitigated for virtually all known threats as each bunker includes a massive existing concrete and steel blast door, that seals to stop any water, air or gas permeation; air and exhaust ventilation shafts, and a secondary emergency exit.

Many people can afford the purchase of a Vivos xPoint bunker but are concerned about the cost of outfitting it. Everyone has different tastes and budgets. You can spend as much as $110,000 to $120,000 for a fully built out bunker matching our showroom unit, (like any of the above floor plans), or as little as a few thousand dollars gradually over time. In the latter case you can create a very chic bunker on a barebones budget.
It begins with your understanding that this is a bunker, not a home. Things do not have to be built out like our showroom bunker, just comfortable enough for you and your family to ride out and survive the events occurring outside. Think of it like your preparing for a long camping trip, al beit under a concrete and steel structure that will protect you from everything outside.
Start with the basics, then keep adding as you can afford to. This can be a great experience, especially when you recruit the help of your family and friends. We call it Bunker Glamping! Your cost of a complete glamping outfitting can be as low as $10,000, plus the cost of a generator, septic system or composting toilet, water filter, lighting, waterproofing, and interior paint. Be creative and get started!
