I have a small ranch with two barns and open flat land on the Central Coast to park your RV or camper. What you will get here is seclusion and strawberry scented air. The ranch is located on the riverbed mesa with a panoramic view of the Sierra Madre mountain range, avocado orchards, and the valley floor is covered in strawberry fields. My horse arena ( I do not have horses at this time) is set up for overnight yurt campers, and has a giant fire pit for all guests to share. I also have two small individual bbq pits that are first come/first served that you can use at your site. You can bring your own small contained fire rings with mesh lid/covers on them at your RV site if you let me know ahead so that I can clear any dry vegetation.
The RV sites are all around the property edges; some are up next to the bluff overlooking the valley of strawberry fields below; some are by the large hay barn and can park up next to it for added shade and wind break; and some are parallel to strawberry fields with a southern view of Peak Mtn (we see the snow caps up into April with it's 4,900 ft + elevation), which are one of the most important undeveloped habitat areas of the endangered California Condor. There is plenty of open space to park your RV, (turn around, back in, pull-thru) and I do allow RV campers to set up tents as well, if desired.
The location is a quick 2 miles off the 101, at the best exit with all the amenities you need for your camping experience. I am located where several wine trails begin that will wrap you through Foxen Canyon down into Santa Ynez and Los Alamos to Bob's Well Bread Bakery and some of the best intimate eateries at night. This is also a famous cycling route. Going North of Santa Maria you have hiking, beaches, sand dunes, more wineries and wine trails, hot springs, and the best (all time favorite) Thursday night Farmers Market in SLO.
Madonna Inn is a one of kind must see iconic pop culture throw back hotel/restaurant/bakery--a dessert and coffee stop after the farmer's market--where you can check out every nook and cranny (especially both downstairs bathrooms) and be amazed by it's Rapunzel'esque castle vibe.
The best clam chowder is in Pismo Beach at Splash Cafe; and the biggest/best cinnamon rolls are at Old West Bakery (one will feed 4+). For both of these famous Food Network foodie stops, the lines are so worth it and you have to get there early before they sell out (Maple Bacon!)--no guilt there if you hike Madonna Hill or Montana De Oro first!
When you are done checking out all the cool places on the Central Coast you will come back to a beautiful sunset, sky full of stars, and maybe a white barn owl or two. Bring jackets because it does get cool at night, your own camping chairs, and any camping equipment for cooking. I have corn hole, card and board games available for those that want to unwind and be still in one place, sip some local wine, tea, H2o and relax.
In following Health Officer Order No. 2020-12 for Santa Barbara County, effective date June 12, 2020, 8:00 a.m., for opening of campgrounds protocol, I will be disinfecting all communal areas, door handles, leave hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray at the portable bathroom.
My personal residence (pool) is off limits.

Meredith was an absolutely awesome host: so helpful; so communcative and even let us check in way early because our plans had changed last minute. The space is huge and if you live privacy and isolation there is nothing better.
The site is better suited to modern rigs, our vintage trailer was a little wobbly without a flat bed, but all in all it was a true adventure.
Pleasant simple rural
It is a very simple campsite but it gave us what we needed. Meredith was a great hostess setting up the fire and visiting with the guests.
You might see more cars around when you wake up as the space is used by field workers as a parking lot but this was not an issue. We were not woken up by any activities.
It allowed us to have a mini break and explore the area.
