The Grounds:

20 acres of nature to explore, set up camp and or kick your feet up and listen to an array of birds greet you in the morning. After dark, stargaze while listening to the soothing music of rustling leaves. 

This city escape is where Cahuilla and Kumeyaay Native American tribes once roamed. The rocks in the outdoor space have grinding holes (mortars) once used for food preparation by the tribes.

Wildlife:

The location is also home to wildlife animals such as, deer, wild turkey, blue jay, falcon, hawk, woodpecker, roadrunner, humming birds, horse, and many more.

PLEASE NOTE: The property has a home and on the grounds. The railroad is located right next to the home. If one chooses to camp near the home other guests may be present. If one chooses to camp near or in the valley there will likely be no guests near by.

Great location close to Julian and all it has to offer. Lovely views from the property and beautiful night skies. Not much flat space for camping but David directed us to a great spot. The basic wild camping set up was perfect for us and we'd definitely stay here again.
