PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISTING FOR AN ACCURATE PICTURE OF THE CAMPING EXPERIENCE. MAKE SURE ALL GUESTS UNDERSTAND THE RULES INCLUDING HOW TO USE THE COMPOST TOILET. This is not "glamping."

Play with baby goats. Eat fresh, organic eggs and enjoy the amazing views! You are on top of a hill on 11 acres in the High California Desert bordered by mountains in this beautiful valley.

You can see the sunrise over the mountains and the sunsets are usually spectacular! In the morning around 7:00am you can see hot air balloons lift off from the wineries in Temecula Valley on the west side of the property.

Relax in our hot tub that's in the common area.

You can hear my roosters crow in the morning (and at night!! Roosters have no respect for quiet time. If this bothers you, bring ear plugs. We also sell good quality wax ear plugs for $2/pair)

Our Nigerian Dwarf Goats will beg for treats and attention. You are welcome to play with the baby goats at any time. I have treats you can give the goats for one-on-one bonding time with the babies. You can also hold our American Chinchilla Rabbit. His name is Buckly and he loves cuddles.

We have firewood, ice, charcoal, water and other items available for purchase. We are 25 minutes away from any stores. We accept cash, PayPal or Venmo on site.

It is so quiet you can hear the crow's wings flapping as they fly by. You may see field mice, Barn owls, rabbits, squirrels, road runners, small lizards, coyotes and other desert animals. This does include the occasional snake.

For current, local events that may be of interest follow us on Facebook or go to our website. Just search for Bierbaum Pepper Farm.

We are less than 15 minutes away from Temecula Wine Country with over 50 wineries in the area. We can tell you which are dog friendly as we go to those often. 

Lake Skinner and French Valley Preserve are 15 minutes away.

Diamond Valley Lake is 30 minutes away and is a great hike to see desert wild flowers when they are blooming in the spring. It is famous for the Super Bloom that you could see from space! I highly suggest you Google it.

We have portable fire pits that you can take back to your campsite IF there is no wind and IF there are no local fire bans in effect.

There is a charcoal BBQ grill in the common area that is available. Bring your own charcoal or purchase a bag from us. DO NOT use firewood in the charcoal grill.

We have a common area/garden where you can sit with a beer or watch the sunrise with coffee. This includes a picnic table and other outdoor seating.

We also have a drinking water fountain and mobile charging station in the common area for your phones. WiFi is available in the common area but does not extend to the campsites.

Keep in mind that the price reflects the amenities here. This is not glamping.

We are in wine country and charging $45/night. A room out here is no less than $200/night in the off season (average cost is $350). This is for the experienced camper that doesn't need or want amenities. This is camping, not glamping. We are happy to host first time campers. Just make sure you talk to experienced campers first to understand what it's really like.

We limit the number of campers and sites so you can enjoy the property with peace and solitude. There are only 5 camp sites on 11 acres so that you can spread out and enjoy the peace without being over crowded.

We have a solar shower! The temperature of the water depends on how much sun we get that day so early morning showers will be cold! Check the temperature of the water before stepping under because it can get very hot or cold! Also realize the hot water is limited and it will take a couple hours before it will heat up again between showers. Showers will only be warm for 5-7 minutes.

If you bring friends, make sure you give them the link to the listing so they know what to expect! This isn't glamping and if you sell it to them like it is then they will be disappointed, you will have a bad trip when they whine about it and it's not fair to us if they leave a bad review because they expected glamping when we are very straight forward about the amenities and what we offer.

ESPECIALLY tell them about the compost toilet. Please. True campers leave no trace behind. Clean up after yourselves and be respectful of our home. Only bring guests who can do the same.

DESCRIPTION OF EACH SITE:

There are pros-cons to each site and it depends what you are looking for while camping. There are no tables/chairs at the sites. Tables/chairs are provided in the common areas. There is no shade at any site though there is plenty in the common area with hammocks and misters to cool off.

If you have a big party (more than 8 people) you will want to book any combination of sites 1, 2 or 4. They are closest together and are private. There is plenty of room to spread out between these sites for multiple tents.

Site 1 is behind the hill and cannot be seen from the house. It is very private in a field on the North side of the property. You can drive to this and park at the site. There is no shade. It is not close to the shower/bathroom.

Site 2 is behind the hill and cannot be seen from the house. It is very private in a field and next to some very big rocks on the South side of the property. You can drive to this and park at the site. There is no shade. It is not close to the shower/bathroom.

Site 3 offers a great view of the sunset and is on the West side of the property. It is very close to the shower/bathrooms. HOWEVER it is behind the chicken coop. If you choose this site bring ear plugs or buy them from us. You may also smell the goats as the male goat pen is here as well. The Roosters start crowing about 3am. If this bothers you don't book this site. You can drive to this site. There is no shade. There is plenty of room to spread out and room for multiple tents.

Site 4 is the most popular site. It is on top of a hill in the middle of the property and has an amazing view of the valley. It is level enough to accommodate trailers/RVS but there are no hookups here. It is easy to drive to. It is not close to the bathroom/shower but it isn't super far either. There is no shade.

Marcella was an amazing communicator and was quick to answer any questions I had, she even sent photos of shaded areas on the property upon request!!!!! I was impressed at how Marcella readily went above and beyond to accommodate me.

Oh my goodness, baby goats!!!!!! Way too cute, and rather friendly too!

We had a great time! The jacuzzi during sunset is pretty incredible and the communication with Marcella was a breeze. We were the only guests during our stay so it was a very private experience which was an added bonus. Thank you for sharing your lovely space with us.

What a gem! Marcella was really kind as well as detailed in her explanation of camp rules and expectations. Feeding/petting goats, hearing roosters AND eagles! We even got to see a hot air balloon. We will be back! Thank you, Marcella!

The place is exactly as advertised. Hosts are kind as can be but give you your space as well. We had campsites 5 and 6 and it was perfect. Would highly recommend this site for those looking for a tent camping experience. You could not even see the hosts house from the site and we had 10 plus people very comfortably. We went to the local dog friendly wineries which Marcella recommended for the day and came back for a sunset hotub. We could not have been happier with it all.

Marcella was so nice! She was very helpful and had everything we needed. She even accommodated us when we asked last minute if we could check in an hour early. The site was perfect- absolutely nothing wrong, with a shower and bathroom as a plus. The views from site #4 of the sunset, stars, sunrise, and hot air balloon were amazing and sights i will never forget.

Marcella was such a lovely host. She gave us a tour and waited up for us to arrive. We were so late because of LA traffic.

The common area was so cozy. We enjoyed our first night relaxing in the hot tub lit by tiki torches. While it was super hot, the hammock misters and shade from the trees helped us a bit. We drove to a nearby winery, somerset to escape the heat. Only $25 for a tasting and a flight! Ending the evening with a campfire facing a full moon was incredible.

We also loved petting the goats and bunnies. However, the roosters were quite noisy but farm animals can't help it I suppose. You could camp in a further spot if it bothers you but we loved being so close to the common area. This location is also so nice because you get views of sunsets and sunrises.

I would definitely suggest this beautiful location if you want to tour wineries and get a farm experience.

It was great having you both here! It's always fun to share our home with people who are excited for the experience. We hope to see you back again soon! We should have some new baby goats around February so it would be great to see you then.

Had a wonderful time here. Marcella was so nice, spending time with us and introducing us to her goats and chickens! We had no problems finding their driveway...just drive slow and you can’t miss the black mailbox with the address on the pole. We would go back again! Thank you Marcella and David!!!

Marcella & David were very accommodating. We only got to spend a night at the pepper farm, but it treated us to a gorgeous sunset and a starry night sky. The goats are hilarious!
