This must be one of the most unique experiences out there. The campsite was clean and had a large fire pit with benches. There were several picnic tables and we had private portable bathrooms onsite. The most amazing feature of the campsite was the small heard of camels in an enclosure right next to it. Camping next to these wonderful animals is almost beyond words. Along with camping we were also given a private tour of the ranch. Christina, our guide, had an extensive knowledge of the animals and our two young children had all their questions answered. We were allowed to hold and interact with many of the animals including a Watusi Bull, and an Argentine Red Tegu Lizard. A few of the reviews do mention the fact that Reptacular Ranch also hosts Weddings. If you camp while there is a wedding happening, you will hear music from the wedding, the night we stayed it wrapped up by 10pm. The campsite is also situated between two small ranch roads, so you will hear and see vehicles coming and going to the ranch and wedding site. We found these to be minor issues in comparison to the opportunity to share a campsite with 7-10 camels, but it is worth mentioning. The ranch is located in the Angeles National Forest, so there are beautiful hikes located close to your campsite. Overall we had an incredible time. It was safe, clean and the staff was wonderful. I would highly recommend staying here. Especially if, like us, you have kids who love animals.

This was a really lovely experience for us. Our kids loved the animals and camping next to camels was pretty cool. It’s definitely a lot pricier than regular camping but getting up and close with the animals was pretty cool.

David and Christine were amazing tour guides. We got to see so many reptiles. And we hung out with camels! They are both so knowledgeable and so easy to talk to.

Cory - thank you for being so kind and so hospitable. We've let everyone know what a great time we had on your property.

Thank you!

We had the best time at Reptacular Animals Ranch! We had an amazing tour. I thought there were only going to be a few animals but there were so many! We will definitely be back.

I truly can’t say enough about how wonderful this place is. Cory and Jenn are absolutely amazing, the property is beautiful and I have never seen so many different animals taken care of so well. Jenn did our tour and shared her knowledge and history of each of their animals. We had a beautiful day, magical evening under the lights with my son playing guitar. We will definitely be back and refer it to as many people as we can. My friends are already asking how I got a picture in front of our RV with a camel (Aka Herbie)
