Calling all *trailer camping* art and music lovers, forest fairies, adventurers, peace seekers and those who are searching for a place to escape to. Come stay in our 2019 Prowler trailer for a weekend and join our unique community full of artists, wine makers, musicians, theater folk and nature lovers. The trailer is also the perfect place to remain secluded in these crazy times. The property is a working family ranch that includes a vineyard, tasting room, ceramic studio, sculpture garden, blacksmith shop and several gardens. You may hear noises such as a tractor in the distance or our blacksmith class on Saturday mornings but it remains quiet most of the time. During the summer, Brice Station hosts music concerts and Shakespeare theater shows. (Unfortunately the concerts and theater shows are cancelled for now due to Covid as we take it very seriously.) We are within minutes to 30+ wine tasting rooms along Main Street Murphys, some of the largest trees in the world at Big Trees State Park, and endless outdoor activities such as limestone caves, hiking trails, swimming holes and lakes. Come meditate, read, write, dance a night away at a concert or use us as a home base while you explore the amazing area!

This place has everything! Thanks to Mike for the ambiance and awesome chats. Great spot with plenty of shade for our tent, walking distance to winery and awesome live music

This was our first HipCamp experience and though the setting was pretty, the whole scene was a little uncomfortable. When we drove up, there was a woman who lived on the property hanging with a couple of friends basically where we were told to camp. She didn't know we were going to basically be camping in her front yard and we felt like we were kind of invading on her space. Also, the three of them were loud quite late into the night, which is fine since it is her house and there aren't campground quiet hour rules, but it made it hard to sleep. That said, the place was quite a lovely setting and we saw one of the most beautiful sunsets we have seen in a long time!

Omg I can't begin to explain the beauty my family and I encountered while staying at Emily's. What a getaway we needed with the uncertainty and craziness of the world right now. The landscape is gorgeous, it is extremely private, and there are great activities near by. The camper was super clean and Emily was nice enough to leave a couple board games for us and full stock of whatever you need to cook or eat in the kitchen. Right outside of the camper is a beautiful trail that we rode our bikes on and steps away is a tasting room for wine lovers! There is a store right down the street in case you forgot any groceries or essentials which is very convenient. Emily and her boyfriend greeted us when we first got there with open arms and an open heart. They are great people and we will be going back asap.

Pamela, Emily and the rest of the staff were so warm and welcoming! We booked this spot last minute and they were all ready for us. Beautiful land for camping, very easy to access + the benefit of a cool artistic setting. Highly recommend if you're looking for a camp spot with a taste of the local community. We'll definitely be back!

We had a wonderful night camping. We were in need of a quiet place to sleep after attending an event in Murphy’s. Emily & David helped get us settled in and throughout our stay were always available by text if needed. Beautiful land with awesome art throughout, wine tasting, concert venue, pottery. studio, and vineyards. So fun just got home last night and planning a return visit when we can catch an onsite concert.

Beautiful blooms on this well cared for property.Wine tasting room.So much art and fun stuff being worked on when we visited, can’t wait for our return visit to see more!Our campsite, but we hear it’s soon to be the trailer rental site. Amazing view!

I would definitely recommend staying in the Trailer at Bryce Station, the trailer has all the home comforts you need along with tranquility and a beautiful view. Lots of hikes in the local area, wine tasting on-site and great live music on the Saturday night which was an added bonus. Emily was always available if needed, but we also felt like we had our own space. We will be back, thank you Emily!

A very comfortable stay in a lovely forest. There are some great things to do nearby too - giant sequoia groves at Big Trees State Park 20 mins away, and an amazingly clear lake at Alpine Lake (we're convinced we found gold in the sand). Yosemite is 2.5hr away, so a day trip is completely feasible.
