Camp in a 35 acre land surrounded by hills, mountain views and an open sky. The sunsets and sunrises are spectacular year round.  Stars and open skies that you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else in southern California.  Just 15 minutes from Temecula wineries, 40 minutes from the alpine, artsy town of Idyllwild in the San Jacinto Mountains, and just 15 minutes from the 215 in Menifee toward Hemet.  Best camping from early autumn to lush springtime where we have great wildflower blooms.

Cooperative managers Jim and Dawn host campers who want to enjoy nature, participate in permaculture gardening all while off-setting their travel footprint. Fees are used to plant trees and enrich the land.  The property is a restorative ecovillage (turning severely damaged land into an oasis of hope) where we invite you to participate in creative local solutions to our larger global problems.

We stayed at The Grotto. It was plenty of space for our group and the surrounding terrain made it feel private. We only had to share a toilet and shower with one other group. Jim and Chris were very helpful for getting us everything we needed. We ended up renting a pop-up canopy and they set it up for us. We went on a hike up the Lakeview Trail which gave a great view of the beautiful terrain surrounding the site. We would definitely come back!

Our group had a great time. Jim and his staff went beyond expectations to make sure we had everything we needed. We were able to purchase ice and firewood at the site. Everybody had a smile. Obviously everyone there loves what they do.
