The host allowed us to park in a tree grove overlooking an incredible vista which was definitely preferable to the other camper spot because of the views. It was a truly stunning spot. Bathroom excellent. Very welcoming and magical place.
Stemple Creek Ranch was beautiful and private. We biked around a bit and watched the sunset over the valley and the mist roll in. Lisa also recommended yummy restaurants to eat at. Loved our stay!
Thank you Lisa!
Beautiful farm in remote bay area
We stayed on a meadow area adjacent to a eucalyptus grove. Oriented north/south we had beautiful views on both sides. You’re surrounded by lush rolling green hills. It’s very private and peaceful. Also good sun exposure if you’re using solar. If you’re looking for some privacy and a sense of nature, it’s a great spot. Only about 20 minutes or so from the 101 and a few minutes from the 1. Lisa and the farm manager Katie were very attentive.
Spectacular 360 degree views! love!
This place is absolutely spectacular. 360-degree views of some of the most gorgeous land we've ever laid eyes on. The hosts are incredibly friendly (and so are the cows!) We spent two nights here and wish we'd booked many more. There is a large, clean, and well-stocked port-a-potty along with a picnic table and we found flat ground to pitch a tent easily. We were allowed to roam the property (as long as the electric fencing was secured) and there are some lovely hills to stroll. There is WiFi by the barn, and even some swings to embrace your inner child on. Highly recommend! A+++
This was a beautiful, easily accessible yet private campsite, with gorgeous views and lots of sunshine. The bathroom was pristine and the overall property stunning and welcoming. We would definitely camp here again! Lisa was the perfect host.
We had a wonderful stay at the ranch! Lisa was super helpful and accommodating when we needed a last minute place to camp. The view was gorgeous and the sheep were adorable.
