The Canyon is a beautiful large campground at the back of our 80 acre horse rescue ranch. It is shaped like a triangle with high canyon walls on both sides, one of which is perfect for rock climbing enthusiasts. It is an open camp area meaning you can pick any part of the approximate 13 acre parcel to camp on. There's plenty of room for you to spread out and claim your own spa

This is a great inexpensive place to camp near Temecula. We would go back again. Jacqueline was very helpful. :)

Beautiful area. Volunteers were very welcoming and interesting. Horses and goats well cared for and fun to visit. Campsites were nice and well marked. We chose the canyon camping. Emailed directions were good but canyon camping sign was down and no one could tell us where to park. We have 4 wheel drive so we’re able to park in a spot above the corrals with a great view.

Lots of baby goatsView from our spotFriendly horses

Host wasn't there, but Paolo was awesome. Very friendly and helped us with whatever we needed.

Directions on link from hipcamp website were incorrect. We called and got someone in Texas who wasn't familiar with the area. She had someone call us back but we had already figured out how to get there.

Nice place to stay of you just want to relax, but not much to do besides see the animals. The kids loved it, but unfortunately our son scratched his cornea so we only stayed 1 night instead of the 2 we reserved.

Someone was target practicing throughout our stay which was a little uncomfortable.

We stayed in Site #5. This is a very primitive space. Bring your own water and be prepared to hike out your own trash. They do have a spigot but it's way too much work to bring up to sites 4-6. I wouldn't stay in Sites 4-6 unless you are OK with going in the bushes as the walk down to the ranch in the middle of the night is pretty scary. It is under a large tree which is good for shade. Site #6 has a big hill to walk up and is very sunny so take that into consideration. We heard a lot of critters in the middle of the night. They do have showers but it's kind of at your own risk because of exposed wiring next to water condensation. I doubt it's up to code. No cell reception once you get on the dirt road. The groundskeeper there is very friendly and works hard. We did a trail ride and my kids loved it. He does a good job matching up the horses with people. The horses were well behaved and good on the trail.
