This place is a gem. I'm almost afraid to rate it so well because I don't want it to get crowded, but credit is due. I hung out here one night with the ranch dogs by the fire watching the sunset and enjoying the stars. Jim was a great host. Will be back!

We drove a few hours out of our planned trip to get to Songdog and I was worried about having my husband bag on me for days if it wasn't worth it. Thankfully the drive was beautiful , the campground was remote and nothing short of amazing. Make sure you have the instructions to the campground your cell is worthless there. The ranch itself had the truck door open (Owner may not be home) for Gypsy the camp dog that spent the evening with us .We took cool showers in the waterhose on the grounds. It does get hot during the summer days so bring a kiddie pool, water guns and drinking water. We are going to go back with friends and family and rent all 4 campsites!

Songdog is honestly the most beautiful campsite I have ever been to!! There was some rain the day we were set to camp and we almost cancelled our plans, but are SO glad we didn't. The property is beautiful by nature and absolutely beautifully kept -- no trash, well kept pavillions and probably the cleanest outhouse you'll ever find. The sites look down over the valley and mountains, giving an incredible sunset experience. Each site has plenty of space to itself, giving a relaxing sense of privacy. Very nice chairs are provided too, which makes sunset viewing and sitting by the campfire even more cozy. Thank you so much to Songdog for making this wonderful space open and welcoming to campers! I really can't wait to come back again :)

Beautiful, quiet camping up on the mesa. Jim, the owner, is personable and the star-gazing chairs at each site are a great touch!

A tranquil oasis surrounded by barren landscape in the middle of nowhere. Tasteful set up with sheltered tables and benches, a fire pit with chairs. Drinking water. Good views and sunsets, and - depending on your fellow campers - great atmosphere. Property dogs Gypsy and Jill are awesome. Ojai is about 1.5 hour drive through Los Padres National Forest.

Exceeded our expectations! We were looking forward to a tranquil evening under the stars and got more than we imagined. The ranch was easy to find and Jim, the ranch owner is really great! We felt right at home as soon as we got there. There is so much land to explore and the views are breathtaking. We were the only ones there for the night and it was so peaceful. The ranch dogs really made the stay all that more enjoyable. They hung out with us the entire time. We will be back!

Drive up the Mesa Sunset view Our camping hosts, Jill and Gypsy. They made our stay that much more enjoyable. The view cannot be beat

This campsite is a real find. It really feels like a good escape from the world. Jim is the perfect host - friendly, welcoming and very accommodating without being intrusive in any way. His beautiful ranch dogs were also good company. The campsite is beautifully kept and well worth a visit.
