If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We took a trip to Sacramento to visit my cousin and with four dogs we couldn’t get a nice hotel so we decided to camp out. We found REMI Ponics Farm that same night after having bad luck with near camping sites, being a holiday weekend they were all full.
We also got tons of traffic so we were happy to find this place. John was great we were able to get a hold of him the two times we called him. The place was a little hard to find but luckily we found it!
Over all if you need a place to stay for a night this is definitely a safe place. We slept all night and our dogs were content.
Beautiful scenery, restful stop
Ok reviews are correct, the gps is off for the address, blame Google maps for that. The grounds are newly acquired and many improvements are coming however, if you need a last minute dry rv or tent nights in a last min booking... this place is great. Close to amenities and the hwy. beautiful agricultural scenery. Our dog loved it too.
Farm setting at the edge of town
The site has easy access to the highway and is close to shopping and dining in town. At the same time, it is a peaceful rural setting. The site is located in a community of small farm plots. There are RVs and tents dispersed throughout the area. The neighbors seemed friendly, although people mostly keep to themselves and I had plenty of privacy.
John was easier to reach by phone than by message. He answered my calls and got back to me right away. I called an hour before arriving, as instructed. When I arrived, he gave me directions over the phone and invited me to park anywhere near the tents. We did not have much communication, but I had everything I needed.
Once I cleared a spot and settled in, I found the site to be very comfortable and even extended my stay for a total of three nights. I would gladly stay here again. I enjoyed walking and biking around the area and visiting local attractions. The site is on an abandoned tree nursery and needs some cleanup of nursery pots and branches. Otherwise, the setting is quite lovely. The operators have plans to continue developing the campsites and starting an agriculture project at the property to benefit local youth sports.
Central valley staycation
The area is an abandoned tree nursery that is being cleaned up for farming and camping. This site is a work in progress and may not be for everyone. I was skeptical when I first pulled in and wasn't sure where to park, as there are no designated sites and directions were minimal. I moved some branches out of the way and tucked into a little clearing under the trees next to a trio of goats in a pen. Once I settled in, I was perfectly comfortable here and extended my stay for three nights. My rig is fully self-contained and I did not require any hook-ups or amenities.
The few interactions I had with neighbors were pleasant. There are some RVs and tents scattered around the area and more permanent structures put up by the local farmers, who appear to be a diverse community from around the globe. I work in agriculture and enjoyed checking out the small plots and watching people working in the fields. The quiet country roads are perfect for walking, jogging, or biking, although be warned that it is a bumpy ride with a trailer.
The goats were good neighbors, a little stinky but I don't mind. I also had mockingbirds singing in the trees and saw a gorgeous California King Snake (a friendly snake) crossing the road. The site has stunning sunrise and sunset views. At night, I enjoyed sitting out under the starry sky. There is a stockyard nearby and it is close to the freeway, so there are cattle and truck noises and city lights.
There are plenty of activities nearby. The town of Galt is 1.5 miles down the frontage road, a quick and easy bike ride to shopping and dining. I rode to Raley's and back with groceries. On Sunday, I drove to Cosumnes River Preserve, just 10 miles to the west, and spent the day kayaking on the river and walking the nature trails. This place is a gem! After working up an appetite, I headed to Streetzlan Restaurant in downtown Galt for an amazing lunch at this funky little street food joint. Galt is known for it's flea market, which I am getting ready to check out on my way out of town.
I would not recommend this place to anyone. We booked this for one night for our 35' Class A RV+motorcycle trailer. First, we could not even find the place; the address given does not show up properly on Google – it was several miles off. According to the only other review for this place, we are not the first ones with this problem. Perhaps some instructions or warning would have been helpful. When we called the hour before (as requested in his posting) he THEN informs us that there was no electricity hook-up, as promised in the posting. He offered to cancel, but we were almost there, and it was a bit late to make new plans. And we could get by. And it still had water, which was another thing we were looking for (more on that later). He was very helpful in getting us to find the place. However, the dirt road to it didn’t have potholes… it had craters. An endless road of craters, rocking and twisting our rig every which way. The next morning I go out to fill the water tanks and guess what? No water either. We will be requesting a full refund from Hipcamp, and recommend everyone else stay away.
The spot may be ok for camper vans or tents, but nothing more, and make sure to update navigation instructions and amenities!!!
Shadiest campsite award
I booked this site 6 hours before we were arriving in town to make an end of life visit for a family member. While i spoke to John over text directly after booking regarding what time we'd arrive and accessing the site, there is no address on the trip page after booking...it just said "call 1 hr before arrival" and John sent me a gate code. I didn't think much of this since there was a map link with the location but we ended up not being able to reach John when we arrived and looked endlessly for the address on the map. In the morning, after boondocking on the street, John said that the map listed the wrong address and when asked, he agreed to give us a refund. We have not received any.notice of refund from hipcamp so we processed a charge back with our credit card company. While i try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, this listing has no reviews and there is no company or info listed online for "Remi Ponics Farm". I also could not figure out why someone would not give confirmed reservations the address but would send us a gate code. That makes absolutely no sense. The whole thing just felt scammy.
So far, i've paid for a 1 night stay at a site that i have no proof actually exists ...on a "farm" that has zero digital footprint. Proceed with caution.
