The vibe at Sky Ranch in Big Bear
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I spent the night at Star Deck, but there's plenty of space to tent camp and a couple of spots for for vans and RVs. The deck is right next to a trail, so you may see a few hikers (it's still a more private trail). The host is super chill, easy to communicate with. The nightsky was so beautiful! You can see lots of stars. I like that it has direct access to a trail. You have to hike in to set up your camp at the Star Deck area (not flat) so make sure you're comfortable carrying all of your stuff! For the other site, you don't have to walk much. Really peaceful area and pleasant for camping.
It was a great site and we will plan to go there again. We loved the area and that there were hiking trails right on the property and it was awesome that we were the only RV on the lot. No waking up to the typical RV site, where you are surrounding by other campers! But be prepared that the site is NOT level and even using our jacks and extra blocks, we could not get the RV even close to being level. So bring extra blocks! The only other thing that could be better is that there were 3 old boat trailers just sitting on the property. close to where we parked. We had to position the RV so they were out of view.
Much different than expected. Site one looks very private and from the photos, site two does as well. We found the clearing which was an empty lot with several beautiful trees but surrounded by houses and air bnb rentals. The woman taking care of the property for the host was very nice and mentioned that there was a wedding that had left behind a porta potty which was nice because we were under the assumption that there wouldn't be a bathroom available (true dry camping) which was what we were expecting but thankful that wasn't the case because we weren't necessarily in nature but rather an open lot. Furthermore, the porta potty isn't permanent so I would assume that the "bathroom" availability listed would be in the house? Even though the host was very kind and offered for us to use the house vicinity, we weren't comfortable with that. There was also a mention of a shared grill and a solar hot water shower in the listing description..? No idea where any of that was. There also wasn't a picnic table, water spigot or trash/recycle bins anywhere near site two as listed. It was a fine spot to sleep in our truck for the night but we won't be back and I don't think it's worth $30 dollars a night. "Site two" is simply mis-listed. I think the site should be clearly explained with photos that show the space as is, rather than fancying it up to sell it. We were let down because it wasn't what we were expecting.
