We are a family owned and operated working farm, and have lived here since 1977. We now have four generations living here in Santa Ynez. We are proud growers for Diamond Walnuts, and have recently dabbled in Christmas Trees, as well. We love our farm, as its our home as well as our business. We are happy to open our walnut grove to you and share the bounty and beauty that we have called home for the past 42 years.  Back your self-contained RV, Conversion Van, or Trailer into a secluded site in our 20 acre walnut grove. We are nestled in the village of Ballard and in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley. Walking distance to two Tasting Rooms, a Bakery, and a Fine-Dining Restaurant!  Note that the trees lose their leaves in the winter and will leaf-out in late May. This may affect sound barrier and privacy a bit. We offer 2 sites the Grove, one which accommodates larger RV's with up to 6 people (called "Lovely Walnut Grove for RV Camper" - which has a larger area, picnic table, fire pit, corn hole, complimentary candied walnuts).  The other site space is designed for a single RV ** see note at bottom about additional Trailers (must be self contained with built-in water and wastewater tanks - sorry, no portable toilets). Pull in to a designated area among the trees and enjoy. Sprinkled with lighting, we include a picnic table,  campfire pit with 3-4 pieces of split wood (you can add-on  additional bundle for $10), Weber BBQ, and Corn-Hole Game. We will also throw in a treat for both our guests and their doggies. The two sites are 200 yards apart (that's two football fields) assuring your privacy.  Please note in your request what you will be traveling in (RV, Trailer, Sprinter, etc). (** Please note that because we are a food-producing farm, we are only allowed to accept fully self-contained units (with built-in water and waste water tanks - sorry, no portable toilets ). No tents unless they are accompanying a self contained RV).

Lovely Walnut Grove for RV Camper
Lovely spot in amongst the walnut trees. Fairly close to the road but very quiet when we were there. Anne was very welcoming when we arrived. Enjoyed sitting around the fire in the evening.

Lovely Walnut Grove for RV Camper
Great location, Close to Solvang
We camped for two days in September, the walnuts were not ready yet. We stayed at the Diamond campsite (the first one) closer to the highway. The campsite was immaculate. Had everything you need and some more. We were surprised that there was some firewood included for two nights. Also a nice BBQ. Everything you might need is there. I went to their website and ordered sourdough bread that was amazing (takes two days to prepare) Ann brought it to our site nice and warm for $10. I highly recommend it. The noise from a nearby street was noticeable the first night (Friday night). But not the second. It was nice and quiet. The orchard was wonderful. I highly recommend this location.

Secluded Walnut Grove for RV
It’s a very quiet and nice camp site. Walnut trees are right above our van, which makes us feel the nature so well. Mike and Anne prepared welcome gift for us and even our dog. That’s very sweet. Thank you!

Lovely Walnut Grove for RV Camper
I can't say enough about this place. We have stayed several times with Mike and Anne and they have always been very communicative and kind. From leaving out treats for our pups to firewood for the fire pit. If you ever have the chance to stay DO IT!!! A short walk to wineries and quick drive to downtown Los Olivos. 100% recommend.
