About Creekside Hideaways
Pitch your tent on a 105 Acre (40+ hectares) ranch in Modoc County, California ("Where the West Still Lives"). Locavore Farms is in on the outskirts, if you can call them that, of Fort Bidwell, near the intersection of California, Nevada, and Oregon. The land is pasture and sagebrush with a year-round creek running through and a small spring-fed pond, in a very small town bordering an Indian reservation and public (BLM) lands.
You'll check in with your hosts who will show you options for camping that optimizes sunshine, privacy, wildlife, or creek access. Between late October and May or so, campers with RVs or campervans will be most comfortable. Potable well water and a wonderful composting toilet (named "Throney") are available to you, and in season the U-Pick farm and farm animals can provide you with both food and entertainment. The "back 40" and beyond offer hiking with amazing views, and there is easy access to nearby farms and wild areas, including lakes, creeks, and the wide open spaces of the Basin and Range.

The vibe at Creekside Hideaways
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Rancho Love Joy Peace is a beautiful piece of land and a prefect environment to come and hang out and camp with friends.
Fully equipped with private campsites, a creek to take a dip in on a hot day, a beautiful farm, and a communal amphitheater where movie nights are played. There are solar lights to guide you where ever you need to navigate at night ( like the compost toilet 'Throney') and fun little hiking trails up into the hills to give you a beautiful view of the grounds.
Rancho Love Joy Peace has nothing but good vibes. A place you don't feel obligated or pressured to mingle with the other campers or farmers but also a great place to meet and hang out with kindred sprits.
Definitely a great place for a much needed recharge from everyday life.
This place was great. We just stayed for an evening. Krystal was there to greet us and was super friendly as she walked us back to the sites. We woke to the sunrise in the morning washed up in the makeshift sink, got to know Throney, checked out awesome creek out back, then drove back into Fort Bidwell to have breakfast at the FortBidwell Hotel. Everything had a simple friendly small town feel.
We arrived after dark but Krystal was expecting us and showed us to the campsites. The campsite was nice, the fairy lights gave it a cozy feeling, and we got to wake up to a view of the beautiful creek in the morning. I had never used a composting toilet before, but I thought it was actually pretty pleasant - far better than port-a-potties or pit toilets.
