Lots of history! My family has been here since 1884, making me the 5th generation on this land. As the birthplace of the Volvon Nation of Native peoples, the Morgan Territory Regional Preserve is nearby, making for some great views and hiking! You can see the black hills from our backyard. You can also see Mt. Diablo which also has great hiking. Or hike our own hills for a killer view.

This is a small hike to the site. We are surrounded by endless rolling hills, and I swear there is magic in them! There is a creek that runs through the ranch (which is usually dry, unless we have a big rain). My family boards horses on the ranch and we have about 60.

*Season conditions: Currently in summer the ground is uneven and the weeds are dry and thick. The hills are golden, not featured in the listing photos. It's still a beautiful camping adventure, but it will not look like the pictures. There are nice spots on the ranch if it's too wild out there.

We provide porta-potties for visitors. The farther into the hills, the more privacy you will find and the vibe out there is incredibly peaceful.

We leave the adventure up to you and you decide where to camp, there are no markers on purpose.

If you choose to venture out into the hills, there are grazing cows. They are a part of the adventure and they are curious creatures but won't bother you. If you don't want to be around cows, stay in the ranch yard.

The hills are green in the winter/early spring and golden in the summer/fall. When the area is dry, there are stickers so be mindful when packing clothes - yoga pants are not a good idea.

Get off the grid! Service is pretty spotty so you're in for a treat with an excuse to unplug.

What an amazing place to boondock! I camped here two nights in a field that overlooked a valley filled with grazing cows. Amazing views and incredibly serene. And the camp hosts were very nice. Definitely recommended.

This is a beautiful spot and the hosts were so friendly and helpful. We camped out in the middle of the pasture and had a gorgeous view. The grass can be quite tall with lots of burrs, so long pants are a good idea. Also, if you have seasonal allergies of any kind, bring some meds -- it's no joke out there. But, it's so so worth it. The ranch is lovely and there's lots to see. I highly recommend it!

Beautiful rolling hills, super friendly farm owners. Short hikes up two nearby hills. Walk past the nearby cows staring at you in bewilderment, definitely a hilarious and worthwhile experience. If you sleep under the tree bring earplugs as a really loud bird wouldn't shut up in the morning. Also bring long socks/pants and shoes as the wheat in the fields will jab into your legs, not a big deal though. Pretty private and secluded. Great experience, totally worth it!

My boyfriend and I had a great time at Rolling Hills. Initially going through the main gate, you'll pass all of the horses. We didn't set up camp too far from the Ranch, so there was a lot of cow dung around. Where we settled did not have fresh cow dung, so it was easy to move. I loved the roaming cattle. If you venture further, you shouldn't have the same issue we had with this. Since we were able to freely roam the unsettled parts of the property, we set up our table and cooler under a bunch of trees and hung out there for the day. The dogs were able to play and roam.

We arrived in our campervan after dark, and loved being reassured by the welcoming signs on the property. The cows were a fun part of the stay, along with the hospitality of the host couple and their dog Alvin. Though he barked at us upon arrival in the dark (rightfully so), he was as sweet as could be! If you're into stunning views and kind folks and animals, stay here.

This was our first time camping as a family with a 1yo. It was easy to find and set everything up, and we had a really relaxing stay. The baby enjoyed looking at the cows and horses, and we got a beautiful sunset and an easy hike.

Rolling Hills was epic!! I had a group there for my 30th birthday and we had the best time. Christianna is an angel and let us roam around the ranch, pick eggs in the morning and grill by the fire. The landscape is beautiful and all the cows and horses added so much charm to our stay. I highly recommend staying here, it's so close to San Francisco, but you feel a world away. Thanks for having us!!
