Private hilltop overlooking morro
This review is for Site 3, up in the hills. This site is awesome. Amazing views. The road up after the gate is a little gnarly, there's a big rut in the middle, so make sure you have some good tires. There was actually another group up there with us but there was plenty of space. There was a big oak tree with a table under it that we used. It did get a bit cold and windy so make sure you are prepared. Larry was a super nice and laid back guy. Overall an amazing place to camp. Super close to Montaña de Oro and Ralph's grocery store.
We had a very pleasant stay at this low-key camp spot. It was great just kicking back, watching the sun setting on the nearby hillside and listening to the frogs, crickets and other critters coming out for the night.
While this place was one of the most picturesque places I've EVER been to to watch the sun set, this location was not nearly what I was expecting which was a bit frustrating after spending the money that we did. (I'm sure things might have ended a little differently if our host was actually there to clarify everything but he was out of town and we didn't have service to contact him once we got there.) My friends and I were going to be in the area and were looking for a spot to pull off for the night- toilets, water, a campfire, and a space for a van plus a tent were an absolute must for our group so I reached out to Larry before I booked to ask him about his property. He said there were vault toilets there, a water container nearby, adequate space to park and set up a tent, and that campfires were allowed so we reserved a site! When we arrived, we followed signs to our site spot and were a tad confused because it was just a small field patch. Behind that field was spot number 2 where we saw some other visitors and drove back to ask them where our spot was. They assured us it was in fact that tiny field. There was just a small strip of about 8 ft wide of the field that was quasi-matted down where the site was labeled but it was pressed up against a field of crops so we had very limited room to navigate where to park our van. No designated spot for fires either and we didn't feel comfortable making our own fire ring or pit because on either side of our "strip" were crops that we didnt want to risk ruining and the strip we were parked on was covered in straw- too many hazards there for an open fire. After deciding that a fire was out of the question, we went looking for the vault toilets and water and found that the water was empty and there were no signs as to where these "toilets" were even after driving around back to the front of the property a second time. The last thing we struggled with was how much of this property is in plain sight of the highway- we didn't feel comfortable enough setting up our tent for fear of attracting "bad news" since this field was up against the side of a hill that anyone can see as they drive by on the main road so my whole group had to cram inside our van for the night which was not what we had planned. We were very disappointed seeing how this site was not what we were expecting, and it was such a waste of our money and time. We paid over $40 for a site to have literally the same amenities (which were none) if we had just pulled off the side of the road and crammed in our van (which would have been FREE). If you are a sucker for sunsets and photography, definitively give it a shot but other than that, not worth it in our opinion for that cost.
It was good. It was confusing to find where to go because we couldn’t find a clearly labeled site. I also tried to call Larry for clarification but he did not answer. All in all though, the site got the job done, it was a great last minute spot!
Amazing views and privacy!
Absolutely LOVED our stay here. I felt like we had a whole mountain to ourselves, with a massive space to set up camp and such a grand view of Morro Rock, plus everything from the valley to the ocean. Larry was around to welcome us warmly and then gave us full privacy. He was also excellent with his communications.
The site was so peaceful and isolated. There was a bbq grill and small fire pit for our use and our three dogs loved running around exploring -- and we didn't have to worry about other animals or humans coming by that they would bark at. The drive up to the site was a bit nerve-wracking being a steep, somewhat bump dirt road, but we made it up (carefully) in our Toyota Camry.
I seriously can't recommend this spot enough for its massive space, privacy, and views! Would definitely recommend to others and hopefully be back soon.
