John was very great at communication when I booked and answered all my question to make sure my stay will be great. And he also reminded us when it close to the trip and gave a very detail direction. He waited and met us at arrival, showed us around. The campground is well developed, there bathroom with hot water, dinning area, kitchen etc. And everything is enviroment friendly. You should pack light and enjoy your stay. I will come back soon.

We truly had a great and peaceful stay at Brandyland. John was very kind and helpful. He met us at the site and showed us around. Since we were one of the first arriving for the weekend, we had free pick of our site. We chose the Oak Site since it was nestled away under a beautiful oak tree. The campsite as a whole is well-stocked but minimal in the sense that you still felt like you were still on a proper camping trip. The outdoor kitchen was super useful. John has constructed various distribution sources for potable spring water (major bonus for me). He also provided the camp with a gas fired stove and kitchen sink, which really simplified our food situation. The bathroom was fantastic with an indoor AND outdoor sink as well as a composting toilet and shower. The campsite is very communal, so all amenities are shared with folks from about 10 sites. On our first night we were one of 3 sites filled so it was really chill. The second night a group of 5 and group of 9 showed up (Labor Day weekend), so it was less private but the company was enjoyed. The other campers were friendly and we enjoyed sharing fire & food with new friends. The location is close to Kern River and like 100 hiking trails. We had to drive to visit everything but it was beyond worth it. There is so much to do in the valley! We spent a good amount of time at Brandyland, enjoying its other worldly sights and sounds. My friend and I agreed that we would love to come back. Thank you for sharing your space with us John!
