("Tipi" Tent/Tree Camping ONLY)
July 23rd, 2022

The site is really cute! Has a few sites dispersed on the land, along with dining/seating areas. Felt secluded, despite being 2 minutes from the main road. There is a nice hike conveniently located right on the property that was a good workout and had a few spots cleared out to hang out and sit.

Spotted a few creatures - a bobcat, bats, possibly an owl, a black widow. Very cool to see!

Lisa was great - very communicative and friendly. Had to bug her a few times and she was happy to help and easy to talk to!

My boyfriend and I had a lovely get-away weekend at Lisa’s campsite! She was communicative and ready to greet us as soon as we arrived. The giant tree above our site provided some privacy. We also had access to some picnic tables and heat lamps, which made set-up easy. Would recommend to anyone who likes camping with the comforts of home nearby (bathroom + wifi)!

You will never want to leave! The perfect place to escape, unwind, reset, and spend quality time with you and your loved ones.

It was our first time taking our 2 year old son camping and this was the perfect place to go! We already have plans to come back! The host is so welcoming, humble, grounded and her property feels safe, secluded and very special. Our son loved waking up to the rooster, playing on the land, hiking the trail, and running happy and free under a beautiful oak tree. It was the perfect place to reconnect with my little family.

Our host even showed us a humming bird nest ! Something we have never seen and would’ve easily passed up!

You can easily drive a few minutes to town and have quick access for places to eat or shop.

Out heart is full.

Lisa is the most wonderful and accommodating host. The bathroom she provides is beautiful and clean with a breathtaking view!! The trails around her property are awe inspiring and boast fantastic mountain and canyon views. The camping is secluded and private and the Moon Lodge land has such a history behind it! All of this just 15 mins away from the Santa Monica beach. 20/10 would absolutely recommend 🌼

Overall, I enjoyed the night I stayed at this listing. "Moon Lodge" is a tent only site, but I had to unload, then park my car pretty far away from my site. The host said she will update the listing to reflect this. My neighbors were fairly loud, but that was no fault of the host. This is a listing where you should go in with an open mind and heart since there are multiple sites available and you don't know who will be camping around you.
