Holcomb Valley Ranch provides Campers with an enchanting escape from the city chaos. We invite Campers to kick back and Relax on the Ranch. A private 400+ acre horse ranch in the San Bernardino Mountains by Big Bear Lake. With only a handful of campsites generously distanced from neighboring campers. Each campsite is about an acre or more in size. Each with its own fire ring and picnic tables. While there is access to shared restrooms, we are also happy to offer our guests the option to reserve their own private portable toilet for extra social distancing comforts. The ranch feels remote and private, yet is only 4 miles to town with grocery stores and a large recreational freshwater lake. 

Breathe in the fresh mountain air. Position your yoga mat or camping chair next to the meadow and gaze out at the grazing horses meandering through the open sun-filled field. As the sun goes down and you warm yourself by the campfire you’ll be blanketed in a sea of stars. Just don’t forget the s’mores and always remember to follow the “Leave No Trace” principles! RVs must operate off their own power source ie solar or generators. The Ranch has plenty of water spigots for guests use.

It was so magical! We came for fourth of July weekend because we wanted to escape the fireworks in LA. The grounds are beautiful and dog friendly. It's a former Boy Scout camp, so there's lots of interesting buildings and parts leftover from that. There's also the horses! We stayed by the meadow and had a view of the horses each night. Our last night there we walked down to the fence for sunset and the horses eventually all came up to say hi! It was absolutely amazing and breathtaking! I really loved camping here. The drive into the grounds was a bit rough for my Prius, so take it slow and don't get here late/after dark for less stress. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place.

I could not be happier. Christopher and his staff was so accommodating and genuinely friendly. We had the best time there. The property was beautiful with lots of trees and a meadow. There are so many places to explore with a little bit of everything for everyone I would highly recommend this place to anyone that would want to get away to the mountains considering how close it is to LA and OC. We are definitely coming back.

Holcomb Ranch is beautiful! It feels secluded and there are a ton of great hikes and walks on the property and nearby. It was quiet and the sites are spread out. We also had the opportunity to meet a few of the owners and they were all so friendly. It was clear they really care about the property and their guests.

This place is INCREDIBLE! The forest, meadows, and mountains are gorgeous. It's so peaceful, quiet, private feeling, and there was potable running water and bathrooms. Plus, our fur babies could join us which made all the difference! The hosts were amazing and so accommodating. My family and I will definitely return and we're already looking at reserving a few more weekends here! I highly recommend this camping site for anyone! We will be talking about how awesome our trip was for awhile! :)

Christopher and his team were so communicative and helpful. We had a wonderful stay! The camp sites were much closer to bathrooms and running water than we expected. Beautiful property. We had a wonderful time.

This was an amazing campground. I have never camped on a landscape like this ever. It was so pristine and private. Especially during these uncertain times, my brother's birthday celebration at this campsite was absolutely perfect. The host was very communicative, friendly, and even personally came over to say hi and tell us about this beautiful place. He was even so kind as to give us a bottle of wine. So wonderfully friendly! I will definitely be back!
