Pitch camp, settle in, and relax on our beautiful 5.5 acre rustic farmstead, nestled in the cozy hills of Aromas, CA! We are just minutes away from Highway 101, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Our property features sweeping majestic views toward the coast of Monterey and down toward Big Sur. The land features walking trails up toward a beautiful oak grove at the ridge of the property, and down the other side into several acres of wilderness. We are located about 15 minutes from the ocean at Moss Landing, and 30 to 45 minutes away from Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel and Santa Cruz.
Our main campsite is large enough to pitch a 6-person tent (15'x15'), or two smaller (2-3 person) tents. The site features a large shared fire pit and grill, and a picnic table which can comfortably seat 4. We have a portable toilet for guest use, an outdoor sink with hot water, and a semi-enclosed “indoor/outdoor” shower with plenty of hot water and pressure.
Whether you’re passing through on a road trip along California’s majestic landscape, or looking to spend some time getting to know the lush landscape of the Central Coast, we welcome you with open arms!

Nice spot-needs updated description
The owners of the property are very nice but the listing doesn’t show how closely you camp to their property. The tent site is very close to their cabin, which we weren’t expecting because they describe the property as a 5+ acre spread.
The listing makes it sound like you can explore the 5 acres of property but on arrival, one of the hosts told us that the walking paths are covered in poison oak.
The tent site itself is not leveled but the listing describes it as flat, so be prepared to sleep at a slight angle.
If you are planning to bring two cars, communicate with the host beforehand. We weren’t told to bring only one car but the parking situation was limited.
The listing shows a campfire and picnic table but doesn’t say it’s shared with two yurts.
A little piece of heaven!
What a gem! This site is incredibly picturesque, removed enough that you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere but only about 10 minutes from the 101. The family are so sweet and accommodating, they have created a great site! There’s running water and a bathroom and a shower, a great fire pit area and lounge/hammock space to hang out. The site has two yurts that we didn’t stay in but looked so fun and in a nice side area. They’re starting to develop an awesome farm area and we will definitely be back to see what they’re growing!
Very nice people, with a great fire pit and they offer you fire wood the whole time which is nice. The camping area is not very secluded and is on a small slope which makes it difficult to sleep on at times. They do provide a hot shower outside which is great.
This is a great location with beautiful views. The owners are very friendly and communicative and keep up a clean, safe space. Not the most secluded tent site, but not without privacy.
Great little get away
We had a lovely time staying here. Directions were easy to follow, and the property was easy to find. Once we arrived, we were warmly greeted by our hosts and they made sure we were all settled in. The location is great, approximately 30-45 minutes from great destinations for hiking, and exploring in the redwoods, or playing at the central coast beaches. The site is clean and quiet super refreshing from crowded campsites. This camping trip was the first with our baby, and it was nice to have a private quiet site for naps. Overall, a great get away!
Relaxing and quiet campsite
We had a great time visiting this area and Travis is a very kind host. The space is on a hillside without heavy winds and good views. We enjoyed cooking over the campfire and watching the horses at sunset. Outdoor sink with warm water was easily accessible for washing hands and dishes. Exceptionally quiet most of day and night.
My friends and I had a lovely weekend at Aromas Hills. The tent site was great, with our own picnic table and a shared fire pit. I was a bit worried because I saw some other reviews said the site wasn't leveled, but it definitely was! It was also great to have such a nice shower with hot water.
The view from the site was my favorite, definitely the contrast my friends and I needed to life at the moment.
