COVID19 NOTE: Due to the current COVID19 pandemic we are only hosting one group at a time at our site.  We are practicing social distancing and want to be sure to keep our campers safe.  

Located just north of the Paso Robles wine region, Pianetta Ranch and Winery is the perfect spot to pitch a tent and relax around a campfire (maybe with a glass of wine). The ranch is 95 acres, 65 of which is planted to vine, providing a beautiful setting along with wonderful views of Indian Valley north and south of the property.

We have an open campsite that can accommodate large groups. If your group exceeds 30 people, please contact us directly for options.

Children over the age of 6 must be included in the total headcount for your booking!  Our site fee is $80 for the first 2 people, and $30pp for every additional person.


This is a perfect stopping point for cyclists and other traveling groups as we are located along the Peach Tree Trail or along the coastal route of 101.

We are happy to host your group just as a campsite, but for larger groups we can also offer, vineyard and winery tours, barrel tasting, cheese pairings , and more! Extras are at additional cost and MUST be scheduled at least 48 hours prior to your stay. We will do our best to make ourselves available, but we cannot guarantee any appointments

PLEASE NOTE: The camping facility is located on our private winery and vineyard.  This is a production facility and not a public facility. 

Our public tasting room is located in downtown Paso Robles (829 13th Street). To schedule private tastings at the winery (on the campground), please contact us in advance. We require at least a 48 hour notice for tasting. We can also provide cheese pairings at an additional cost.

Please be respectful as the owner lives on site. Children are OK at our site, but please keep in mind that they must be included in the total number of your party and must be under supervision at all times.  We are a working vineyard and winery.  We do our best to make sure your visit is as comfortable as possible, but sporadically we will have tractors and trucks working in and around the vineyard and winery especially around Harvest Time (September - November).  We will notify you about any activity we forsee during your visit.

We had a short but sweet stay at Pianetta Ranch. Everyone we dealt with, from reservation to on-site, went out of their way to be good hosts. We used the site as a halfway point on our way from the Bay Area further south and weren't disappointed.

At night we sat by a roaring fire made of old vines, drank a bottle of estate wine we purchased from the owners, and were surrounded by the sound of crickets and distant frogs. The owners had a knack for sensing when we needed assistance and when we wanted our privacy. We'd stay here again.

I would highly recommend staying at the ranch! It is absolutely gorgeous and John and katelyn are so welcoming and accommodating! The campsite has a grill, fire pit, showers, and bathroom and is in the middle of a vineyard - the sunsets are amazing!! John offers tour and tastings of his winery - the wine is delicious and we learned so much about his winemaking process and history. This is a really special and beautiful place and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing weekend!

Cheers! We love jug wine!!Pianetta Ranch & Winery CampPianetta Ranch & Winery CampPianetta Ranch & Winery Camp

I'll give the highest possible rating to Pianetta Ranch & Winery Camp. It was the best overnight camping trip ever and just a few short hours away from our home. How often does the opportunity come along where camping is paired with wine? The ranch is serene and relaxing with lots of space to spread out. Upon arrival, they greet you, show you around a bit and provide a packet of information about their property, their wine and the local area. The communal area is set up behind the owner's home, in an open space along rows of cabernet vines, with a shaded area below a large oak tree. There are picnic tables, a heavy duty cooking grill and firepit . They supply firewood for both cooking and for the firepit. I really enjoyed the outdoor showers and appreciated the traditional bathroom instead of an outhouse. There were other campers which made hanging by the firepit entertaining. What a nice time we had. I would return often if I could. The owners created a wonderful and memorable time for all. John is great at educating his guests on the many aspects and nuances that make good wine possible. Thank you John and Caitlin for having us!

We had a great stay. The owners were nothing but pleasant, welcoming, and helpful during our 2 night stay there. We got a tour of the winery and got to taste the good stuff directly from the barrel. Hot showers, clean bathroom. Will absolutely stay here again.

What an amazing spot to be (moon and) star gazing!
Caitlin & co are very friendly and we got to buy wines directly from the wine hall, where it all happens. They have great wines and unique product with the Jug Wine: perfect for picnics and camping! But there's no push to purchase, so if you are just there to camp, it's just the huge dog and the beautiful surroundings by a campfire (wood provided).
And I love the propane showers!

I wholeheartedly recommend staying at Pianetta Ranch & Winery. John, Caitlin, and Beau are fantastic hosts, and Kelly was a great contact to have while organizing our stay. Everyone was so friendly and made sure we were comfortable. About an hour after arriving at camp, we were able to do a wine tasting with both John and Caitlyn. We had a great time sampling their amazing wines, and learned so much about wine while chatting with them! They have great stories to tell.

We spent two nights camping under a big oak tree right next to the cabernet grapes. There is a wood grill, a fire pit, three heated showers, three picnic tables, and a very nice bathroom for you to use (the nicest I have ever used while camping). They provided us with old grape vines to use as firewood. Beau (the dog) kept us company for much of our stay, and everyone in our group adored her.

I can't say enough good things about the hospitality of John and Caitlin, or about their beautiful ranch and delicious wine!

Really nice place! Beautiful spot conveniently located along the Central Coast if you're road tripping the 1. The host was very welcoming and friendly, and if we'd had more time, we would have liked to try the wine. Highly recommended!

My partner and I had a lovely weekend stay at the winery. Caitlin was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Firewood was provided, and the iron BBQ grill worked great. The outdoor showers were hot, and the bathroom was clean. We also really enjoyed cavorting with the winery dog, Bo.

The camping area is a large, flat area adjacent to the vineyards and the owners' house. There is very little shade available, so be aware if you're visiting during the summer (it was 90+ degrees and very sunny during our stay in early September).

Overall we had a great time, and would love to visit again next time we're in the area.

Great experience! The site is very well maintained and has a great fire bit as well as a grill, along with a few picnic tables. There is also a heated outdoor shower. The owners are great, very helpful and provide info about the area, had a good time chatting with them. The property is beautiful as well, would definitely come back.
