Had a fantastic short getaway to Saddle Up Ranch over the holiday weekend. TJ was great and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Kids had a great time with her staff and all the animals.

Excellent hospitality, great camping, amazing ranch and friendly staff.

Did three days at saddle up ranch in site #3 with my nine-year-old son. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. TJ was an exceptional host making a point to show us The layout of the ranch and even hopping in the truck to show us the hiking trail heads. All of her ranchhand staff were super friendly and included my son in feeding and tending to the animals whenever he wanted to help out.

We were the only ones staying at site #3 for this particular weekend so we had the whole area to ourselves. Apparently it can be broken up into three portions however there is ample room where you wouldn’t be very close to any other camper should they happen to be there. Our area included a fire pit made from a large barrel, a picnic table and a charcoal barbecue. Great views of the hills in the distance and the ranch below. Friendly and adorable dogs will come to visit you throughout your stay.

There are many things to do within a short drive including Idlewild, Lake Hemet, Ramona, and plenty of hiking walking distance or a short drive away. We will most certainly be back.

Wake up to the sound of a rooster and drink your coffee watching horses play in the pasture.
This is a great place to enjoy a private camping experience. We booked a horse back ride and it was great.

Great location. I appreciated the picnic table, fire pit and bbq. Enjoyed the view and looking at all of the horses and animals. TJ was a friendly host but also gave us our space. We did a trail ride and that was a great experience also. The horses were well cared for and responsive vs your usual trail plodders. We would definitely return for a nice weekend getaway. I want to mention that it is a hard packed dirt road when you leave the highway. Not sure how that would be if it was wet/rainy with a larger or heavy RV. Thank you for a great stay. We will be back.

This was our first family Hipcamp experience and TJ & Saddle Up Ranch are one-of-a-kind! We had the most magical experience enjoying the beautiful property, experiencing the animals, and just slowing down to enjoy ranch living. This was a perfect location for our young children and our pup to explore. Thank you, TJ, for making us feel so welcome and for sharing your amazing property and mission with our family. We will be back!
