What a treat to arrive at Johns’s place after a long day crossing the Mojave! We parked our little trailer in the “back forty” and had just the amenities we needed, a bathroom and electric hookup. Even better, we enjoyed the shade and birdsong. John was most gracious in hosting our brief stay. Highly recommended.

I love this place, and I love the hosts. We had to cancel the first nite and they were very understanding and helped us do that.
It was great getting to wake up and pick fresh apples for breakfast, and having a real bathroom with plenty of room to do dishes I'm the sink was an unexpected bonus.
I think I'm spring this place would be amazing! However in the middle of July with no shade it was hot. We ended up spending our days away from camp so we wouldn't cook. Another issue which is nothing that can be controlled were milk weed bugs. They don't sting, or bite, or fly, so not overly problematic - just didn't want to sit on, or sit anything else on, the ground.
If you camp in the field rather than in an RV on the concrete be aware you will have to cross a good 100ft of loose gravel. For most not a big deal, for those with hypermobility it may be a huge issue.
The neighbors are a little closer than they appear and mind their own business - there are roosters though, so bring ear plugs because they have a very different idea of morning than people may.
It is less expensive than a motel though, and it was so nice being able to have a fire, and brought home enough fruit to bake a pie, for summer months I'm not sure it's worth the price yet - it has a ton of potential and I can see it being well worth the price at a later date

Though I would love to give a horrible review and keep John’s land my dirty little secret I just can’t do it! He and his wife have done a beautiful job with the place. We have two dogs and knew that they were secure thanks to chicken wire on the fence in his very large yard. We had electrical hook ups and a cement pad, he even had a brand new built small restroom right beside the camper, which made it very convenient for us. He met us at the gate and guided us in, and didn’t mind that we arrived around 9 o’clock at night . He guided me around his backyard, with his reclaimed barn turned mother-in-law quarter and he’s cute Koi pond. The next morning him and his wife brought Ollie out to play with our two dogs. I will say that we have an F250 and a 30 foot camper once you got to the backyard there was plenty of space, but be prepared to be a good driver as it is slightly challenging to get on the path from the front to the back with a large vehicle, it’s doable for sure, but be good or you’ll take out a wall . John was very cordial, and kind. I would highly recommend his location.

My family and I tent camped for two nights. The space was ample, the fire pit was great, and having a bathroom for my 4 year old to use was super helpful.

John was always quick to reply to my questions. He met us when we arrived and showed us around. It would be a great spot for an rv/camper too!

We have a dog but didn’t bring him, though I noted on the listing before booking that it was dog friendly… John’s property is perfectly fenced and we feel like we could’ve safely brought our Bruno and not had to worry about him slipping through spots. We highly recommend staying here :)

John was the nicest man and his yard was absolutely perfect for our one night stopover with a 20ft RV. Massive back yard for chilling and also hookups and a little toilet room which we weren’t expecting. Thank you John - this was a really cool stay! Cheers.

The drive to John's place is a step back in time. You are surrounded by fields of Agriculture and Country living. The campsite is simply fantastic. Apple trees, plum, citrus and fig trees beg for you to to sample them. The Hosts are so friendly and love to talk about their facination of what we like.

John was so kind and gracious to welcome us with open arms! Thank you for making our stay away from the city such a beautiful time! The quiet space and incredible property and the fig and apple trees was definitely a bonus! John encouraged us to pick the apples off his trees and we were able to share some yummy apples with our family when we arrived home.
We appreciate your genuine care and we will certainly be back! Chris and I are so grateful to have found your spot to relax and re-energize. To reconnect with Mother Earth at John's place was an absolute blessing!! Thank you!!!!!!

John was genuinely friendly and we had a good stay! The kids loved the fire pit and apples that were offered to pick and eat off their tree. Large, private and peaceful area. We had a nice morning walk around on the streets one morning. The town nearby is conveniently close and has all the amenities. We were even able to pick up a water hose at the local hardware store that we needed to replace. We spent Saturday at the Teaching Zoo attached to Moorpark College and really enjoyed the time there. It’s not impossible to get in there with a large rig but not exactly fun. We have a 41 foot 5ver towed by a F450. Our turning radius on the truck is excellent and probably made things a bit easier. Well worth the stay!
